  • Broad application flexibility provided by the variety of available body types
  • High-performance ensured by a cast body with large radius curves designed to optimize internal flow passages and minimize pressure drops
  • Improved reliability and service integrity via body-guided disc design to ensure tight sealing and check valve protection in the event of fluid back flow
  • Ease of maintenance facilitated by the seal-welded seat ring, which allows for quick replacement
  • Rapid operation made possible by the optional equalizer lines that connect the bonnet area above the disc to the downstream port
  • Optional equalizer lines improve disc lift and eliminate dash-pot effect
