Top 3 Reasons to Specify the Conval Clampseal Gate and Globe Valves

  1. Superior Rugged ConstructionConval valves are designed and built for extreme longevity. Features such as electroless nickel plated finish, complete material traceability of all wetted parts and yoke, instantly establish the quality of the Clampseal® Valve. The Clampseal® also has a pressure actuated backseat which provides maximum valve integrity by ensuring a positive internal stop for the valve stem and disc assembly. The actuated backseat extends packing life by securely isolating the packing from the pressure when the valve is fully open. Valves built forty years ago are still in service today.
  2. In-Line Renewability - When inspection or servicing is required, Conval's in-line renewable valves do not need to be cut out (as do most other welded-in valves). The result is the shortest downtime and lowest life-cycle costs in the industry. A complete service, including a reground seat, new packing or stem replacement can often be accomplished in less than thirty minutes.
  3. Renewal vs. Replacement - Renewing Clampseal® valves cost as little as 10% of the cost of replacing it. Renewing the packing is less than 4% of the cost of materials to replace a globe valve. In addition to the savings listed above, there are intangible savings from shorter shutdown time, which is considerable given that the cost of plant shutdown often exceeds the cost of equipment.
