Steam jacketed valve bodies

October 2015 Valves, Actuators & Pump Control

Mitech’s steam jackets ensure consistent valve heating or cooling of process media to prevent crystallisation or seizing of flowing media. The jacketed valve helps the high temperature steam or oil flow over the valve and body parts, keeping the media liquid. This applies especially to media such as bitumen, asphalt, liquid sulphur and soap applications. It is also suited for media found in food plants, such as chocolate, where the steam jacket is fitted to a specialised hygienic valve body.

The heat diffused by the valve body jacket reaches all the critical areas of the valve, in particular the seat and the bearings area. The hub end or integrally flanged inline globe control valve body is used as a base and is modified to incorporate the steam jacket. Flange ends are integral, while the flange drilling incorporates blind tapped holes. The bodies are rated in accordance with ASME B16.34. The jacketed configuration is targeted for use in sulphur recovery units and in any application with a high fluid crystallisation risk.
