How does a Monoflange work?

A monoflange includes one, two or three needle valves inside a compact, flange-shaped body, allowing a significant reduction in volume, dimensions, weight and potential leakage points.

What is DBBV?

DOUBLE BLOCK AND BLEED VALVES (DBBV) DBBV is a single valve solution used as replacement of two in-line valves with a drain and/or bleed valve. Many different valve type have been used in double configuration for blocking and bleeding, sampling or draining.

What is DBB valve?

Double-block-and-bleed valve (DBB) is defined by API 6D as a “single valve with two seating surfaces that, in the closed position, provides a seal against pressure from both ends of the valve with a means of venting/bleeding the cavity between the seating surfaces.” When just one side is under pressure, this valve does …

What is instrument valve?

Valves are used in applications wherever instrument measurement occurs. Valves are used for isolation, venting, block & bleed, static pressure, absolute pressure, gauge pressure, differential pressure, liquid level & instrument lines. Valve end connections are female NPT & male NPT.

What is the difference between DIB and DBB?

With a DBB valve, there are usually two unidirectional self-relieving seats. In contrast, a DIB valve utilizes one or two bidirectional seats. The valve provides double isolation from pressure at both ends of the valve but cannot relieve body cavity pressure past the seats.

What is double block valve?

A double block and bleed valve is like having three valves in one. This trunnion style ball valve from Val-Matic provides double block and bleed in a single valve. This style can isolate piping on both sides of the valve (uni-directionally) to vent/bleed the valve cavity between the seats.

What are pro-Bloc valves?

Parker’s Pro-Bloc series modular valves are designed to replace conventional multiple-valve installations currently in use for interfacing with pressure measuring systems.

What is a block and bleed valve system?

The purpose of the block and bleed valve system is to isolate or block the flow of fluid in the system so the fluid from upstream does not reach other components of the system that are downstream.

Is it a block valve or shut off valve?

Until now, however, we have not mentioned block valves. But the term “block valve” describes many of the valves we’ve talked about. The strictest definition of “block valve” (or shutoff valve) refers to it as “any valve that has the capacity to block movement in one or more directions.”

What are the different types of block valves?

The following are a few types of valves that have block valve characteristics. Ball valves are probably the most common type of valve there is, especially in the PVC applications we tend to see.These valves are usually used to totally turn on/off flow in a system using a spherical seating with a hole in it.
