WIKA IBF1 – Monoblock Ball Valve- Single Block
The monoblock has been designed to meet the requirements of the process industry, especially for natural gas and aggressive media applications. The compact design integrates a shut-off valve to separate the process from the instrument side.For applications with liquid or dirty media, ball valves are recommended due to easy cleaning of the straight-through internal bore.The one-piece case minimises the number of leakage points and thereby reduces the risk of media escaping into the environment. The valve seat design and the redundant seals of the valve body ensure high durability and tightness. In case the soft valve seat fails, the metal-to-metal seat will ensure that the valve can still be operated and set to a safe position.
The tightness is guaranteed for the connection between the process and the measuring instrument and towards the atmosphere. The super-finished machining of the internal parts allows a very smooth and precise operation, even at high pressures and after long periods without valve operation. The surface finish helps to prevent corrosion with aggressive media and makes it easier to clean.
