Flowserve-Durco-Triple Offset Butterfly Valves - TX3

Triple Offset Butterfly Valve - Durco TX3

BRAND: Durco

The Durco TX3 butterfly valve offers excellent shutoff capabilities with the low torque and reduced wear benefits of a triple offset design. The precision seat and seal are machined at an offset angle, creating even seat loading around the entire seat ring and eliminating rubbing between the seat and seal during opening and throttling. Combined with its laminated seal ring, the Durco TX3 valve's triple offset design provides long-lasting, bi-directional, bubble-tight shutoff, even in gas applications.

It's high-performance design offers the following advantages:

  • Higher reliability -- API 598 zero-leakage shutoff assured by triple offset design and laminated metal graphite seat seal
  • Extended service life -- owing to low-operating torque resulting from the low-friction, low-wear elliptical sealing surfaces
  • Minimized emissions -- packing options meet stringent fugitive emissions (ISO 15848-1) requirements
  • Improved safety -- API 607 fire-safe design plus API 609 anti-blowout shaft
