BI-TORQ® Valve Automation has added to its suite of fire safe products. The additions include smaller FS/FW series valves and a new high pressure series.
The FS/FW fire safe valves now include ¼" and 3/8" sizes in full port design. The FS/FW series is a 2000 PSI working pressure valve available with a carbon or stainless steel body. The high performance valves come standard with RTFE seats and graphoil body/stem seals, but are also available with seat options of Delrin and PEEK. The full series now is available ¼" through 2" with NPT or socket weld end connections.
The new HPS series of high pressure fire safe valves is available ¼" through 2" with a pressure rating of 6,000 PSI (Class 2500) WOG. The valves are offered in carbon or stainless steel and come standard with Delrin seats and graphoil body/stem seals, but have optional PEEK seats.
"We hear the demands of our customers and respond," said Dave Marut, BI-TORQ Valve Automation CEO. "The market for automated and thermal activated shut-off valves is growing and we expect to be at the forefront of that growth through continual product development."
BI-TORQ® Valve Automation, now in its 20th year, started with a single line of pneumatic rack and pinion actuators. The company has grown tremendously since then and now offers a full line of automated ball and butterfly valve packages, actuators and valves for retrofits, as well as, a suite of safety products including fire safe fusible link assemblies, spring return handles, and fusible plugs. BI-TORQ® Valve Automation’s parent company, AVK Carbo-Bond, is a family-owned business specializing in valve mounting kits, stem extensions, lock-out kits, and customized solutions such as butterfly valve tee linkages and tandem mounting kits.
