Why the material selection and the manufacturing process are crucial with oxygen ball valves
With specially designed oxygen ball valves by Hartmann Valves, oxygen plants and oxygen pipelines can be reliably shut off and safely operated. With regard to the increased fire and explosion hazard, only metallic and sealing materials are used in the process which are suitable for the demanding oxygen medium and are tested accordingly. A stringently specified production process guarantees oil and grease-free manufacture.
As with all Hartmann high performance valves, the oxygen ball valves can be deployed for high pressure ranges up to 420 bar and temperatures up to 550°C.
