Swagelok Introduces GU Series Needle Valves For General Utility Service
SOLON, Ohio (August 4, 2005)- Swagelok® GU series needle valves isolate and vent system media in instrument air, nitrogen header, lube oil, and general utility service applications in the oil and gas, chemical, petrochemical, and other general industrial markets.
Offered in stainless and carbon steel, the GU series valve can be ordered in straight and angle patterns with a choice of end connections in sizes from ¼ to 1 inch (6 to 25 mm). The valve features operating pressures up to 6000 psig at 200°F (413 bar at 93°C). A sour gas service model is also available.
A two-piece knuckle joint drives the hardened stem tip to create a leak-tight seal. The non-rotating stem design minimizes seal wear, protects the seat from galling, and helps promote long service life. Both the knuckle joint and the strong, cold-rolled stem threads are isolated from system media and protected from dust and dirt by a stainless steel shroud.
