API-6A Trunnion Mounted Ball Valves

API-6A Trunnion Mounted Ball Valves

A trunnion mounted valve uses a ball supported by both a shaft and a post opposite the shaft and a seating arrangement using a floating seat. With a mechanically connected ball at the top and bottom pivot points, the process pressure pushes the upstream seat against the ball's sealing surface. 

Trunnion-mounted ball valve applications include pipeline, process, power, oil & gas, and other flow control applications where quality, design, safety, and environmental protection are paramount.

Tiger Valve Company (TVC) is a trunnion-mounted ball valve manufacturer.  

TVC Trunnion-Mounted Ball Valves (TMBV) meet the latest API, ISO, and ASME standards—manufactured using best-in-class materials and technologies. The result is the highest-quality and most competitively-priced trunnion-mounted ball valve available. 

All TVC TMBV address all of the safety, quality, and design issues important for ensuring consistent field performance and environmental protection. They provide superior performance in various applications, including oil, gas, and other liquids pipelines, tank farms, meter stations, chemical processing plants, and refineries.

The MASCOT GFlo Globe Control Valve

MASCOT GFlo Globe Control Valve

Superior performance in liquids and gaseous services is the hallmark of the GFlo Globe Control Valve by MASCOT. Easy, quick, and economical maintenance makes the GFlo Globe Control Valve more user-friendly. The spring cylinder actuated GFlo imparts stiffness and maintains very high precision in positioning. A strong response, repeatability, and high-speed controlled movement are the characteristics absent in diaphragm operated control valves. GFlo has the thrust capability to shutoff against higher fluid pressures,  up to 150 Psi / 10.30 Bar air supply.

Valve closure is dependent on springs in most diaphragm actuators. The unique design of GFlo enables it to combine the spring force, fluid pressure, and supply air pressure to achieve a tight shutoff. A self-aligning seat ring adds to and further improves the shutoff capability.

Galling at the cage is the culprit in many common maintenance issues with globe valves because of the close metal-to-metal contact between plug & cage. The GFlo has two top heavy-duty stem guides. Interference between the plug and seat retainer does not exist in GFlo. Easy and quick maintenance is due to the clamped-in seat and top entry trim.
