KLINGER® BALL VALVES - INTEC RANGE

Our industrial ball valves are important components in process engineering systems of all main sectors for the maintenance of transport and production processes. The functional area of responsibility ranges from shutting off, throttling and regulating material flows (solid-containing, liquid or gaseous) in piping systems up to opening and closing processes in piping systems.


The sometimes extreme operating conditions (pressure, temperature, medium) and the safety requirements in the process and control technology require our detailed technical knowledge and application experience for the differentiated design and manufacturing of the industrial ball valves.


TYPES

FACTS BUTTERFLY VALVES

  • Soft seated (bidirectional flow) and metal seated butterfly valve designs
  • Maintenance-free, dimensions DN 50 to 1300
  • Serviceable without removal from line
  • Butterfly valve split shaft-design ensures lowest pressure losses
  • Butterfly valve body available in a wide range of materials, including carbon, steel, titanium, bronze

KLINGER® butterfly valves

Butterfly valves regulate or isolate the flow of a liquid medium by means of a rotatable disk. Similar to ball valves, butterfly valves are also characterized by their quick operation. As a quarter-turn valve, fully opening or closing the valve is achieved by rotating the disk a quarter of a turn.


The KLINGER Conaxe, a double-offset high-performance butterfly valve, is one of the more recent additions to KLINGER’s specialized fluid control portfolio. Developed to master demanding media or pressure challenges not suitable for ball valves, the Conaxe is ideal for applications within the energy and district heating sector, the oil and the chemical industry as well in the paper and the steel industry. Its one-piece housing is available in lug, wafer, welding ends and flange design in the dimensions DN 50 to 1300. The KLINGER Conaxe comes equipped with an RTFE sealing element. Metal sealing elements for special applications can optionally be fitted prior to shipping.

FACTS PISTON VALVES

  • Excellent control characteristics
  • Low maintenance
  • Suitable for steam condensate-alternating operations as well as for temperature shock operations
  • No sealing surface erosion
  • Revisable without removal from pipe system

KLINGER® piston valves

Piston valves stand for excellent industry performance with their minimum maintenance requirements and production savings. KLINGER piston valves are characterized by a system of seals and rings that ensures tightness to atmosphere and thus prevents environmental contamination.


KLINGER has been at the forefront of piston valve technology since 1922. Featuring different types of connections – flanged, threaded, butt and socket weld ends – and both DIN and ANSI-compliant standards, KLINGER piston valves complete the wide range of KLINGER’s industrial valves.

FACTS GATE VALVES

  • Threaded and flanged gate valve designs
  • Depending on gate valve design, suitable for water and liquids with abrasive particles, saturated steam, oil, air and gas
  • Non-rising stem
  • Flanged gate valve features slider vulcanized with rubber to guarantee tight shut-off

GATE VALVES

Gate valves are primarily used to enable or prevent a fluid medium to flow (i.e. ON / OFF control). A fully open gate valve results in no obstruction to the flow path, thus allowing for very low friction losses.


FACTS GLOBE VALVES

  • Wide range of body materials, including cast iron, ductile cast iron, SG-iron steel, and stainless steel
  • Flanged and threaded globe valve designs
  • Depending on product type, suitable for a wide range of applications and media, maintenance-free
  • Cold and hot water, steam, nitrogen oxides, gas, air, oil, chemicals and various acids

GLOBE VALVES

Globe valves are primarily found in fluid regulation applications. Their (semi-) spherical form is comprised of two body halves, separated by an internal baffle. Shutting the globe valve is achieved by means of a disk, which screws into the seat of the battle by means of a handwheel or actuation. As opposed to ball valves, the flow of the medium is not direct and in one direction, instead the fluid enters and rises inside of the body of the valve prior to exiting on the other side.

FACTS CHECK VALVES

  • Threaded, flanged or closable check valves designs
  • Depending on the check valve design: suitable for water, non-aggressive liquids and gases, steam, condensate
  • Depending on the check valve: universal, horizontal or vertical mounting

Check valves

Check valves are primarily used to fully close the passage of a circulating (gaseous or fluid) medium in one direction and to simultaneously allow free passage in the other direction. As two-port valves, they feature two openings in the body, one by which the fluid can enter, and one by which it can leave.

FACTS KNIFE GATE VALVES

  • Cast iron, cast stainless steel, and ductile iron knife gate valve models
  • Suitable for up to 10 bar, maximum temperature 100 °C
  • Threaded, flanged, between flanges and models with weld ends

Knife gate valves

Knife gate valves are characterized by an interior blade that rises and falls by means of a shank. This operating principle allows it to efficiently “cut” the fluid. Knife gate valves are ideal for systems that transport fluids with a high solids content, which are difficult or impossible to close by means of conventional valves.

FACTS PLUG VALVES

  • Flanged, threaded, multi-way plug valve models

Plug valves

KLINGER plug valves operate with the same principle used by ball valves. They feature cylindrical or conical “plugs” with one or more hollow passageways. Rotating these plugs inside the valve body allows the operator to control the flow of the medium through the valve. KLINGER plug valves are typically used for opening / closing functions as well as for flow deviation, which is due to their multiport configuration capabilities. Amongst others, plug valves can be used for  fluids with suspended solids.

FACTS DIAPHRAGM / PINCH VALVES

  • Suitable for corrosive and abrasive fluids
  • Minimal wear

Diaphragm / Pinch valves

Diaphragm valves are characterized by a straight passage design, and are typically used with corrosive or abrasive fluids. This valve type may be either coated or feature a liner inside the body. Combined with the diaphragm, they are capable of performing their intended function with minimal wear.


Pinch valves are typically used in applications where the media need to be completely isolated from internal valve parts. The sleeve holds the flow medium, and subsequently isolates it from the environment, thus significantly reducing contamination. Pinch valves are found in abrasive and corrosive applications, slurries or processes with entrained solids. The latter is due to the fact that the flexible rubber sleeve is capable of closing drop-tight around the solids.

FACTS SAFETY VALVES AND DISCS

  • Fail-safe, pressure-relief function

Safety valves and discs

Safety valves or relief valves are designed to relieve pressure when a fluid exceeds a pre-set limit. Their function is to counter a possible rupture of the protected system or the failure of a device or pipeline as a result of excessive pressure.

FACTS BELLOW SEAL VALVES

  • Used in combination with heat transfer media, vacuum, highly hazardous or costly fluids

Bellow seal valves

Bellow valves feature a metal bellows, usually cylindrical in shape, to protect against stem leakage. Functioning like a vertical diaphragm, it seals with the valve stem and the valve body itself. This type of valve is used to minimize air pollution, losses in production, problems in the process and energy losses.

FACTS CONTROL VALVES

  • Control valve portfolio includes both control valves and segment control valves
  • Wide control range
  • Depending on control valve model, regulation of steam, liquids (in combination with KLINGER ball valves) and slurry, powder and paper pulp

Control valves

A control valve is used to manage the flow of a fluid by varying the flow passage volume. As a consequence, variables such as the pressure, temperature and fluid level can be directly controlled. KLINGER offers control valves that utilize the same wear parts as ball valves as well as segment control valves suitable for flow and pressure control.

 

FACTS ACTUATORS

  • Application: ball valves, butterfly valves, customs taps and 3-way valves
  • Electical or pneumatic actuators
  • Rotating actuators 90°, 120° or 180°

Actuators

Actuators use electrical, pneumatic or hydraulic energy to open and close elements of a valve. KLINGER offers a wide range of actuators as well as actuator accessories, including 90° electrical actuators, pneumatic actuators (90°, 120°, 180°), actuators for diaphragm valves, butterfly, solenoid and ball valves as well as position indicators, silencers and switch boxes.
