API 608 valve

API 608 valve

A valve that covers additional requirements for ball valves and meet the requirements of ASME B16.34 is API 608 valve. This valve is hugely demanded in petrochemical industry pipeline media opening or cutting off, which is under high pressure and high temperature conditions. When dealing structure, this valve has a trunnion ball valve and floating ball valve structure. Their size ranges between NPS 1/2’’-24, They have a pressure class: ASME 150-2500. Adding to this, these valves are designed with an aim to meet the latest standards of API 608, with flange, threaded or welding ends. They are tested according to API 598 standard.

  • Hollow, perforated and pivoting ball are used by API 608 floating ball valve to control the flow.
  • When the hole of the ball is in line with flow, it opens.
  • It closes when the valve handle pivots it by 90 degrees.
  • When open, the handle lies flat in the alignment with the flow and becomes perpendicular when closed.
  • Adding to this, API 608 threaded ball valve are durable, performs very well after every cycle and are highly reliable. This is one of the reasons why it is mainly preferred for shutoff and control applications, but in throttling application, they lack their fine control.
  • It is also capable of withstanding maximum operating temperature up to 932-degree Fahrenheit.
  • One of the main reasons of using this ball valve is because it has an ability to withstand varying temperature and even withstand high-pressure situations. This is important for system handling volatile materials.
  • If you want to control flow in most liquids and gases, you may make use of API 608 trunnion ball valve because of its flexible design, allowing for use in variety of applications. It also exhibits high flexibility.
