SOMAS butterfly valve has a wide range of applications due to its design and material. As standard with metal to metal sealing and triple eccentric design in combination with the homogeneous seat, it can handle both media containing solids and media with very high temperature.
Almost maintenance free
A major advantage of SOMAS butterfly valve is that it is virtually maintenance free. This is possible due to the unique design of the important components of the valve. Many industries have a desire to run for long periods between regular services and then it is important that the components meet this requirement.
Wide range of applications
As examples of process conditions we have steam applications with temperatures around 600° C, applications of diesel exhaust, pulp suspensions containing a high degree of fibre or various kinds of cooking liquors. This wide range makes great demands on the valve design, as well as on the materials. We handle this with the same basic design -- triple eccentricity and a seat of solid stainless steel. We have with this design also a choice to use alternative stainless steel grades.
Product information/data for butterfly valves
Butterfly valveSOMAS butterfly valves are used in hundreds of thousands of installations in a variety of applications. Based on the experience gained from our many years of design and manufacture of metal seated butterfly valves we do not hesitate at this point to claim that our concept is the best on the market.
We do not intend to rest on our laurels, however. Our concept is, and will be, the basis for future development of metal seated butterfly valves. Our R&D department is continuously at work further improving the quality and performance of our product line, in close cooperation with our customers who provide the feedback and application expertise needed to aim our research efforts in the right direction.
They make quite a team, our customers and our engineers. We are proud of them.
SOMAS butterfly valves have many advantages. They offer the following:
Made of stainless steel
Dimensions DN80 - DN1200
Pressure classes PN10 - PN100
Mounting between flanges, with lugs or flanged
Stainless steel seat is not affected by high flow rates replaceable seat in alternative materials
Unique disc geometry which in combination with the homogenous seat acheives tightness to EN60534-4 Class V as standard
