overall integrity of castings (to X-Ray Level II or better as a general standard). Note that high pressure castings (>900F/482аC) follow a far more stringent protocol (100% x-ray coverage and higher acceptance criteria.)An example of the successful cooperation of Engineering,our Casting Simulation Technologist and the foundry,using the Magmasoft > simulation, is shown below.Velan introduced our large diameter forged valves forhigh/pressure temperature applications over 40 years ago. Since then, we have become the market leader in forged pressure seal and bolted bonnet gate, globe and check valves...

Velan valves feature a formed multi-ply bellows weldedto the stem and to the bottom of the bonnet, creating a hermetic seal or impermeable barrier. Bellows are available in stainless steel, Inconel, Hastelloy C andMonel for virtually all corrosive chemical applications.Velan has extensive experience in valve live-loading. The original concept was developed by Velan in 1972 in a research project for Atomic Energy of Canada Limited(AECL) to eliminate leakage in Nuclear service. Velan hasbeen supplying live-loaded valves for Nuclear and non- Nuclear service for more than 30 years. > Live-loading...

The potential for failure to open of wedge gate and parallel slide valves,under certain process conditions may be attributed to an increase in the required unwedging thrust to open the valve due to the following phenomena: > (Diagram A) > ● An equalizing pipe and equalizing valve (Diag.E) ,the valve must be open to provide relief. may result when liquid,entrapped in the center cavity of valves,is heated. > ● The trapped fluid expands and the resultant increase in pressure may render the valve inoperable. In extreme cases, a breach of the pressure boundary may occur. > ● NOTE: Relief valve Caution...
