CRANE® FKX9000

The CRANE®FKX 9000 Triple Offset Valves are ideal for industrial applications where large bore valves handle hot steam or isolate parts of their plants and have high/low temperatures that prevent the use of rubber lining elements. Compared to ball valves, this TOV is an affordable solution that requires less structural support to ensure bubble tight shut-off. Due to their quarter-turn movement for opening and closing, the valves are easy to automate and feature quick closing time, often required in safety applications.

Features And Benefits

Optimized Seat Angle

An innovative seat angle design and Stellite hard-faced valve body seat deliver a longer seal life and improved abrasion resistance, even after extensive cycling. Designed to eliminate wedging or binding of the disc, and lower the operating torque, the CRANE®FKX 9000 can REDUCE TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP BY UP TO 50%.

Metal-to-Metal Sealing

The precision machined metal seat and seal ring deliver reliable and bidirectional shutoff in high-temperature, high-pressure and severe service applications among others. The right-angle conical seat design facilitates an almost FRICTIONLESS IN-LINE SEALING.

Innovative Stem Seal Design

Permits superior FUGITIVE EMISSIONS CONTROL (ISO 15848, Class BH) under recurrent thermal cycling, and REDUCES POTENTIAL DOWN TIME.

Torque-Seating

Unlike position-seated ball, butterfly or plug valves, the torque-seated CRANE®FKX 9000 selfadjusts to evenly distribute seal compression. A “floating” seal ring and wide seal ring supporting gasket yield a BETTER SEAL to eliminate binding and to enhance performance.
