Double Block and Bleed Valve Inventory in 2″ – 36″, ANSI 150# – 900# at Energy Products Available for Overnight Delivery

For more than 50 years, Energy Products Company has been a top supplier of valves for tank storage, heavy oil applications, offshore drillings, etc. It stocks a huge inventory of double block and bleed twin seal valves used in tank storage isolation, hydrant isolation, etc.

According to announcements released by Energy Products Company, it has the world’s most extensive inventory of the double block and bleed valve that finds use in applications that demand zero leakage. It is available in sizes in 2″ – 36″, ANSI 150# – 900#.

The GENERAL VALVE twin seal plug valve prevents abrasion and scoring of the seating surfaces by fully retracting the slips from the body bore during a cycle. The valve, which can be fitted with pneumatic actuators, is an improved version of the original two-valve system. It has a single double-seated bubble-tight valve with upstream and downstream seals that do the same work as the two block valves in the earlier design.

The double block and bleed valves are equipped with sensors and switches that inform on the open and closed valves. The switches are housed in a rugged enclosure that conforms to national and international norms for electrical and explosion-proof housing.

The zero-leakage double block-and-bleed plug valves with retracting seals available with Energy Products Company find application in meter block service where the differential pressure across closed valves is low. The floating seals function without any assistance from the line pressure to hold tight.

The GENERAL VALVE twin seal plug valves are noted for their superior performance regarding consistent and measurable zero-leak performance in different situations, including meter calibration when every closed valve in the meter system must exhibit drop tight sealing.

Other valve types available with this leading master valve distributor to the oil and gas industry include rising gate valves, four-way gate valves, and orbit rising stem valves.

Energy Products Company said, “Introduced in 1941, General Valve Twin Seal plug valves were the first to meet the rigid requirements of double block-and-bleed service. Since then, subtle yet significant design refinements have further improved valve performance. Superior design innovations, pride in manufacturing quality, and selection of the best materials support our commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction.

The seals typically rely on springs to press them against the ball unless the body cavity in a ball valve is vented. The ball valve may be leaking until the user opens the bleed. Then, the reduction of the body pressure introduces a hydraulic force on the seat that may stop the leak. The user can form a false impression that the ball valve is holding tight when in reality, it leaks. In contrast, the mechanical wedge action of the valve plug compresses both the upstream and the downstream seals firmly against the valve body, needing no help from the line pressure.

GENERAL VALVE Twin Seal plug valves are the industry-recognized hydrant valves for hydrant isolation service because they close quickly and easily, require very little maintenance, hold with zero leakage, and hold a verifiable bubble-tight seal.”
