INTEC Top Entry ball valve
In contrast to Split Body Design, Top Entry valves offer the advantage of being able to be repaired in the line. Through the lid opening all internal parts can be replaced, without the fitting must be removed from the line.
Therefore, Top Entry valves can be equipped with weld-on ends instead of flanges. In addition to weight savings, the elimination of flange connections also reduces the risk of leakage into the environment.
The necessity of reorienting the pipe flanges prior to rebuilding a repaired valve is eliminated.
- The internal parts can be replaced without the tap must be removed from the line
- Piping does not have to be realigned
