Trunnion Ball Valves Side Entry Modular (DBB)

Valves suitable for Oil & Gas production, processing, transportation, distribution, chemical and petrochemical refining on above ground and below ground installations.


Trunnion ball valves have the obturator bounded by trunnions which do not allow axial displacements of the ball itself in the flow direction; line pressure compresses the seat onto the ball, the contact between surfaces generates the valve sealing; trunnion standard construction ensure automatic cavity relief in case of overpressure in body cavity; these valves can be selected for a wide range of applications with no specific limits to sizes and pressures. Erreesse modular double block & bleed (DBB) valves are engineered and manufactured to provide a compact and reliable alternative to multiple instrument valve systems, reducing leak paths and saving installations and maintenance costs.

Antistatic deviceIncluded, the ball valve design includes an electric conductive connection between the internal parts of the ball valve and the body, providing the anti-static function.
Pressure reliefAutomatic cavity relief to prevent overpressure in body cavity (self-relieving seats)
SealingBi-directional, Double block & bleed (DBB) with sealing in both directions (DIB-1&2 upon request) Metal seated with Tungsten or Chrome Carbide coatings Primary metal secondary soft (PMSS) with differential hardness between the ball and seat to prevent galling of the substrate Soft seated with thermoplastic polymers (Nylon, PEEK, PCTFE), special polymers upon request Elastomers FKM, HNBR, EPDM O-Rings, special elastomers upon request.
