CRANE ChemPharma Flow Solutions: XOMOX XLB Lined Ball Valve
CRANE ChemPharma Flow Solutions XOMOX® has started shipping its new XLB Lined Ball Valve.
The patented design of this new global lined ball valve (GLBV) offers multiple advantages, including:
- An innovative stem sealing system that provides safety and long term fugitive emission control under extreme conditions
- Dynamic body joint design that allows the valve to retain pressure boundary during thermal cycles
- Lower torque which translates into reduced actuation costs and space saving.
