The Garlock family of companies has reintroduced the Garlock butterfly valve line, a group of flow control products specifically built to handle a wide range of extreme, sterile and chemical transportation and storage conditions, with three new offerings within the Garlock butterfly valve line: the STERILE-SEAL, the SAFETY-SEAL and the MOBILE-SEAL.
GAR-SEAL butterfly valves provide critical shut-off duties and manage the flow of acidic, caustic, abrasive or toxic media that could severely damage or be too challenging for other valve systems. STERILE-SEAL butterfly valves are designed for applications where completely sterility is required, such as in the pharmaceutical and food and beverage production industries. The STERILE-SEAL is only available with a PTFE liner, and offers a unique external sterilisation option: ‘dead’ areas of the valve, along with the disc, body liner and inner seals, can be thoroughly sterilised with steam and allow no possibility of contact with internal media. The SAFETY-SEAL is specifically designed to negate charge build up and dissipate static. Finally, the MOBILE-SEAL butterfly valve is intended for tanker vehicles, railway wagons, fluid storage silos and other containers where dangerous media are contained.
The Garlock butterfly valve line is offered with a wide range of accessories, including standard handles, locking handles, gear operators and air actuators.
