Description

Seals at every port

 

Specifically Designed for Pharmaceutical, Biotech, Food, Beverage, Cosmetic and other Sanitary and Clean Steam Processes

 

4- and 5-way Multi-Ports are true multi-port valves with seals at every port. This design makes the multi-port ideal for flow switching operations. In some applications, this valve can replace as many as four ordinary 2-way valves, with corresponding savings in piping and fittings.

 

  • Adjust-O-Seal® design allows the valve seat seal to be restored in-line to a leak-tight condition, to compensate for normal seat wear.
  • Swing out/Lift out Design for easy removal and installation.
  • Internal seat design produces a bubble-tight seal.
  • Spring-loaded washers create a live-loaded stem assembly for positive sealing.
  • Full-port diameters minimize pressure drops (1/2 - 1", 1-1/2 - 2").
  • Encapsulated body gaskets eliminate cold flow.
  • True-Bore® (tube) for sanitary valves – (MI)
  • Standard bottom-entry stem provides protection from inadvertent stem removal. Engagement between the slot and ball is specially suited for high torque applications.
  • Indexed ball and stem eliminate incorrect reassembly following routine maintenance.
  • Having either four or five seats ensures tight closure under pressure differentials up to 300 psig.  The Series 5 Multi-Port is offered as 150# (275 psig CWP maximum) that do not require the 300# class (720 psig CWP maximum) offered with Series 4.
  • Multiple seating in a true Multi-Port valve enables shutoff and directional control in a single valve.  Multi-Port valves are ideal for recirculation, mixing, and blending operations.
  • In some processes, a single Multi-Port ball valve can replace several 2-way valves in a piping system, reducing costs and simplifying flow control with actuation. Multi-Port valves can also be tandem or manifold mounted to further centralize control.
  • Transflow (the gradual media flow that occurs as one port opens as another closes) prevents dead-heading and damage to pumps. Note: Transflow will not occur on some bottom entry flow patterns.
