IntroductionHikelok pipe connection ball valves have been designed to provide superior quality for maximum performance within a variety of valve styles, sizes, and process connections. Some of the more unique design innovations include an integral one-piece trunnion mounted style ball and stem that eliminates the shear failure common in two piece designs, re-torqueable seat glands that result in longer seat life, and a low friction stem seal that reduces actuation torque and enhances cycle life.The 10BV 15BV use Autoclave's coned-and-threaded connection type.
FeaturesMaximum working pressure up to 15,000 psig (1034 bar)Fluorocarbon FKM O-rings for operation from 0°F to 400°F (-17.8°C to 204°C)One-piece, trunnion mounted style, stem design eliminates shear failure and reduces the effects of side loading found in two piece designsPEEK seats offer excellent resistance to chemicals, heat, and wear/abrasionFull-port flow path minimizes pressure drop316 cold worked stainless steel constructionWide selection of tube and pipe end connections available
