The new design of the Noble Alloy swing check valve from Flowserve introduces casting technology in lieu of forgings, which reduces the weight of the valve by 45% and offers enhanced bonnet-seal performance. The valve features a recessed hinge pin which is protected from the flow path, integral seat design and a high integrity riveted disc assembly. The Noble Alloy valve can be installed horizontally or vertically, is available with soft or metal seating and features multiple end connections and bolted bonnet construction.
Brian Hood, product manager, Flowserve Flow Control Division said: “Flowserve’s foundry specializes in the alloys and highly engineered casting processes that helped to create the redesigned Noble Alloy swing check valve. Even in the most challenging applications, this valve delivers improved performance for customers’ most severe applications while helping reduce life-cycle costs.”
