Ball seat designs, hard facing and soft seats

Ball seat design

The shaped sealing surface feature of the valve makes the sealing more reliable. Designs with various types of low friction seat materials are available.

Hard facing and soft seats

Thermoplastic seat materials TFM, PTFE, RPTFE, PEEK, POM, PCTFE
For Cryogenic service valve equipped with cavity relief hole in ball, special cryo seating construction that withstand fluctuations of pressure and temperature.

Applications for Floating Ball Soft Seated Ball Valves

Red Point’s soft seated floating ball valves can be deployed for a wide variety of applications in the oil & gas, (petro) chemical, mining and power industries when high quality and highly reliable valves are required. A few example applications include:

• High-cycle and switching services
• Oxygen, nitrogen or hydrogen
• Polyethylene or polypropylene
• Oil & Gas services
• Hydrogen
• Food/Pharma
• Toxic/Lethal Service
• Autoclave sevices
• Coal conversion and gasification
• Separator, filter and drying systems
• Compressor stations
• Cryogenic services
