The Bray triple offset butterfly valve (TOBV) is one of the fastest-growing segments in the industrial valve market. Its non-rubbing rotation and high control capabilities are key benefits that make it the preferred choice for a variety of applications. TOBVs also require minimal maintenance, reduce space and weight, and can handle a higher flow rate than other valves.
The oil and gas industry is expected to drive the growth of the TOBV market due to heavy investment in refineries and pipelines. Additionally, the rising requirement for electric power will create demand for TOBVs that can withstand high pressure and temperatures.
Bray Triple Offset Butterfly Valves: The Key to Reliable Fluid Control in Critical
These valves are available with a choice of seat designs, including soft-seated, metal-seated, and fire-safe. The metal seated design offers higher temperature capabilities and a solid metal-to-metal backup seal, making it ideal for dirty and abrasive service applications. The fire-safe design is intended for services at risk of fire and uses a soft-seated material for isolation.
Bray MK Series high-performance butterfly valves are rated up to ANSI Class 150 and 300 and designed for Building Automation, Temperature Control, and HVAC 2-Way and 3-Way Assemblies and Chillers, Cooling Towers, Boilers and Heat Exchangers. They are actuated with Bray’s Series 70 industrial actuators, which mount directly on the valve and can be configured for On/Off or Modulating operation.
These valves are available in a variety of sizes up to 722″ and can be used for a wide range of process applications, including chemical processing, hydrocarbon processing, water and wastewater treatment, and power generation. They are compatible with most worldwide flange standards, including ASME B16.5 125/150 LB FP and BP ANSI NG 5 & 10, DIN ND 10/16, and ISO 5752-Table 2.
