9th July 2016: Tekno Valves is pleased to announce introduction of KHO-10/D and KVO-10/D series, key operated soft seated valves in O-ring seal design for Acetylene service in side and top outlet configuration.
The design meets special tests for acetylene service as per EN ISO 10297:2014 which ensures resistance to acetylene detonation in case soft seat is fully burnt by subsequent metal to metal sealing. The design offer significant benefits over traditional metal seated single spindle packed design valves including reliable external and internal tightness, low torque operation, high cycle life, safe failure without damaging the valve body internals under excessive torque and ease of maintenance.
KHO-10/D and KVO-10/D series are tested and certified to EN ISO 10297:2014 for maximum test pressure of 60 bar by BAM Berlin (BAM procedure DGA-16-015) and available with “Pi” mark in accordance with European Transportable Pressure Equipment Directive (TPED), 2010/35/EU (Type approval certificate BAM-TPED-2016-013).
