Expanding Gate Valve Sold by Energy Products Company Serving the Petroleum Industry

Since 1973, Energy Products Company has been retailing valves that include Expanding Gate Valves, Double Block and Bleed Valves, and other types. Wheatley, Cameron, Grove, NAVCO, and WKM are some of the brands stocked by this seller.

According to announcements released by Energy Products Company, the Expanding Gate Valve that it stocks is precision-engineered to ensure optimum working under diverse conditions. It ensures a tight mechanical seal, an essential condition in critical isolation applications, and is usually not affected by changes in pressure.

The WKM Pow-R-Seal Expanding Gate Valves manufactured by Cameron and stocked by Energy Products Company offers the distinct benefit of proper functioning at temperatures of up to 1000° F. This makes these valves an ideal choice for fluid, gas, steam, and hot water critical services.

The seat faces with these valves are in full contact with the gate and outside the flow stream. This adds to the life of the seat. These expanded gate valves are designed to eliminate destructive turbulence.

The WKM Pow-R-Seal valve has a parallel expanding gate design that results in a very tight mechanical seal in both upstream and downstream directions. The quality of the seal does not get affected by changes in pressure, heat, or vibrations.

The stem seal, centralized by the bearings, is fully encased in the bonnet. The valve has a nickel-plated stem standard. This is a self-adjusting seal that can function without any reliance on plastic packing. The pedestal not only acts as a support for the seal but also serves as a stem scraper. The valves are fire-tested to API 6FA standard.

Energy Products Company states that 60 years of worldwide service in oil, gas, chemicals, water, slurry, and multiproduct applications has established the WKM Pow-R-Seal valve as one of the most trusted gate valves, where safety and seal reliability are critical. The parallel expanding gate design provides a tight mechanical seal, usually unaffected by vibrations or pressure variations. The rigid, cast steel body resists pipeline bending moments which could affect seat sealing in other valves. PTFE seals on both faces of the valve provide drop tight sealing, while metal-to-metal contact between the seals and gate mechanism provides tight shutoff. All-metal seals also are available for service to 1000° F (538° C), where leakage rates comply with API 6D and ISO 5208 standards.

In the fully closed position, the segment has engaged with an end stop, and the gate is wedged downward, expanding the segment and gate so that they form a tight mechanical closure against the upstream and downstream seats. Venting the body cavity will provide total, tight shutoff.

On the expanding gate valve’s manufacturer, Cameron, Energy Products Company states that Cameron is well-positioned to deliver total aftermarket support, quickly and efficiently, with unmatched OEM expertise. Their highly-skilled engineers and technicians are available around the clock, seven days a week, to respond to customer queries, troubleshoot problems, and offer reliable solutions.
