Basis weight valves - product information

The SOMAS basis weight valve is based upon the ball segment valve completed with an electric actuator. The actuator is designed to meet the special requirements for basis weight control in paper manufacturing.

  • VBWVBall segment valve dimensioner DN50 - DN350
  • Pressure classes PN10 - PN50
  • The ball segment valve has PTFE-seat and PTFE stuffing box which provides low friction in the control position. The PTFE seat provides good tightness in the off position, even if this is not so important for a basis weight valve
  • Body design makes maintenance easy. Seat can be exchanged or replaced without removing the actuator or dismantling the valve.
