Extreme operating conditions with temperatures up to 450 °C and pressures up to 420 bar require special sealing technology. Now, AS-Schneider is entering this Metal Seated Ball Valve arena with the new KM Series.

In parallel with the TA-Luft approval, the Series has also been subjected to type testing for fire safety in compliance with DIN EN ISO 10497 and API 607. This has been certified by Tüv Süd.

When developing the new KM Series AS-Schneider uses the latest surface and material knowledge combined with comprehensive engineering know-how. The result is a ball valve with zero leakage even under extreme operating conditions with respect to working pressure and temperature – even though a smooth operation is provided the company said. This is possible thanks to the "Dissolution" Ball Valve Design registered for patent protection. The innovative design offers an optimum distribution of forces and loads, so they are only present where they are really needed.
