Forged Floating Ball Valves
The body and end connectors are made from forged steel bars, or closed dye forgings and engraved with the heat code and material ASTM number. Additional markings can be added upon request.
FULL & REGULAR BORE
OMB can manufacture valves with reduced and full bore in a range of sizes. Both port types are available with threaded, socket weld, and butt weld (Sch. 40 & Sch. 80) ends.
- Full Bore – 1/4” (DN 6) through 6” (DN 300)
- Reduced Bore – 1/2” (DN 15) through 6” (DN 300).
OMB compact and lip seal ball valves have been designed in full compliance with the requirements set forth by BS 5351, ISO 14313, API 6D, and API 608.
OMB’s seats are set deep into the pocket providing additional protection for a longer life.
DOUBLE BODY GASKET
The two body gaskets, one in PTFE and the other in graphite materials, grant the sealing in whatever corrosive service as well give a fire safe characteristic.
TESTING To BS6755 – API 598
The hydrotests for seat sealing and body sealing are carried out respectively at 110% and 150% of the rated Cold Working Pressure. Low Pressure seat test is carried out at 100 p.s.i. (6 bar) with dry air. The hydrostatic seat pressure shall not exceed the seat rating.
