KOSEN gate valves offer the ultimate in dependable service for steam, air, gas, oil, oil vapor, and high pressure installations. All have straight-through ports to assure minimum turbulence, erosion, and resistance to flow. They are available in a wide variety of trims.
Body: Body is cast to provide liberal strength to meet operating conditions and to permit unobstructed flow. Turbulence, erosion and pressure drop are minimized. Flanged End-Crane cast steel gate valves are available in flanged end and butt weld ends. All flanged and butt welding end valves are designed to conform to ASME B16.5 and ASME B16.34 standards.
Integral Yoke & Bonnet: Some designs incorporate a twopiece bonnet and yoke. All bonnet assemblies are cast and finished to the same exacting tolerances as the bodies for accurate alignment of stems and ease of sealing. Bonnet joint varies from flat face gasket-joint to ring-type bonnet joint, depending on class.
Seat Rings: Seat rings are seal welded to eliminate leak path behind rings and for long trouble-free service. The surfaces are precision ground to fit accurately with the disc.
Disc: KOSEN's one piece flexible disc provides accurate alignment of mating seating surfaces so the valve can absorb piping strains without leakage. Also, it avoids any tendency to stick in the seated position. Valves are also furnished with solid wedge discs that have proved successful in millions of applications.
Stem: The tee-head disc-stem connection prevents lateral strain on the stem for smooth, easy operation. Accurately cut threads engage the yoke sleeve for positive control of disc position.
