Lined Valve Company launches a new knife gate valve designed specifically for the coal and mining market. For longer lasting working life in these harsh and abrasive applications, high-chrome iron inserts are incorporated. This robust urethane lined valve features a one-piece, molded in place full body liner and integral 650 Brinell hardness high-chrome iron inserts. The Figure 75 is a great addition to the wide range of knife gates offered by LVC, now adding the specific needs of bottom ash and mining tailings.
With a heavy duty cast iron body and yoke, and stainless steel gate and stem, the Figure 75 provides corrosion resistance and durability. The superior packing arrangement provides improved sealing performance in high cycle applications, and a full packing seal around the gate minimizes the potential for packing leakage. Built to MSS SP-81 certification, Figure 75 is available in standard sizes 2-24” with custom sizes available.

Xomox®XLC fully-lined ball check valves offer economical solutions for the vast majority of chemical applications with a unique flexible seat that enables Class A and API-598 sealing, a first for lined ball check valves. Critical equipment is protected from cross contamination and the effects of backflow, even in the horizontal position where the XLC’s angled ribs guide the ball tightly into the seat. With metal-to-metal contact at the joint seal and wide conical plastic connection, the risk of dangerous external leaks is drastically reduced by the Xomox®XLC.

Conval, a global leader in high-performance valves for the world's most demanding applications, offers Clampseal® Cryogenic Valves for high-pressure, low-temperature applications to -420F. This is below the temperature at which nitrogen liquifies, and the temperature used in many cryogenic processes in liquefied natural gas (LNG), manufacturing, heat treating and vaporizing.
Clampseal Cryogenic Valves are available in 1/2" through 4" sizes with socket weld, butt weld or special ends. Pressure ratings include ASME class through 2500#, ASME B31.3, ASME B16.34, and MSS SP-84. Standard materials include forged stainless steel, SA 182 and F316. Special pressure classes and materials are available. Features include metal-to-metal pressure seal bonnet; solid Stellite seating surfaces; single-piece gland; in-line servicing; and two-year warranty.

Conval offers Clampseal® fire-safe globe valves for refining and chemical plants where fire safety is a major concern. The fire-safe valves are available in Y, angle and T-pattern configurations in ½” through 4” sizes, up to ASME 2500 pressure ratings, and with NPT, butt weld, or socket weld ends. Other end connections are available upon request.
The Clampseal fire-safe valve contains a simple mechanism that compensates for thermal expansion. As a result of this and other design features, the valve meets API fire-safe standards by extremely high margins. The testing procedure calls for the test valve to be placed in-line and pressurized for 75% of rated pressure, then subjected to a 1,400 – 1,800° fire for 30 minutes. The valve is then quenched with water to cool it to ambient temperature, cycled to prove operability, then subjected to further testing. The valve is required to maintain strict leakage allowances during and after the burn.
