Two or three piece side-entry floating ball valve design with:
• Live-load Stem Packing Gland
• Scraper Seats
• Downstream Seat Retainer
• “Flush-Out” Body cavity
• ISO Mounting Pad
• Optional “Portable Flushing System”.
Also available in Top-Entry floating ball design with “caged trim”
• Provides installation of internals (ball, seats, and springs) while
valve remains in pipeline.
• In certain conditions this design greatly reduces downtime and
cost versus removing existing valve.

Upon initial opening some material will enter body cavity. Upon
valve re-opening, material will “flush-out” downstream of Ball in
preferred flow direction

Autoclaves: SST provides severe service valves for leaching processes
(i.e., HPAL) where both high pressure and temperature are present.
Valves are also designed for erosive and corrosive applications such as
autoclave discharge, vent, isolation, and feed.
Roasters: A dry process involving gas-solid reaction at very high
temperatures to purify the metal components. Severe service valves
are used for isolation and drain.
Tailings: A waste slurry product of fine minerals and water which
remain after extracted from unusable ore produced by the milling
operation.
Tailings: A waste slurry product of fine minerals and water which
remain after extracted from unusable ore produced by the milling
operation.
Floatation Cells / Column Thickeners: A method to separate minerals
depending on their ability to attach to air bubbles and carry them to
the surface.
High Pressure Leaching: Where cyanide is added to a precious metal
(i.e. gold) and leaching the mineral into solution.
Oil Sands: Severe service valves are used in froth treatment, slurry
production processes and steam injection in Steam Assisted Gravity
Drain (SAGD) systems.
Operating and Standby Pump Stations: Severe service ball valves are
used to prevent slurry leaking (zero leakage and full differential
pressure) back to an idle pump. Valves can be used for both suction
and discharge sides for pump isolation.
Choke Stations: Where pressure built up must be reduced or
eliminated to maintain safe pipeline operation and provide backpressure to provide constant flow. Severe service ball valves are
used to divert flow to the Choke Station. When closed, the ball
valves must provide zero leakage at full differential pressure.
Isolation Stations: Valves are required to operate in the event of
major rupture to the pipeline. Placed at certain intervals, ball valves
can isolate sections of the pipeline. It is common to have two valves
in series (“Cut and Seal”) where one is the flowing valve (Cut) and
one is the isolation valve (Seal). SST’s full-ported valves are also
designed for pig launching and receiving stations.
Instrument Isolation: Control and measurement systems are located
the length of the pipeline. These small severe service valves are
used to isolate instruments for repair, calibration or replacement
while the pipeline is in normal operation.
High-Pressure Dewatering: Process where high-pressure water is
pumped to the surface from underground mining applications.
