SOMAS cryogenic valves - customized for low temperatures


SOMAS cryogenic valves are designed for operation in the temperature range lower than 120 K or -196 C.

Cryogenic valves are characterized in that the stuffing box and the actuator is mounted on a shaft extension. The reason for this is to avoid any icing that may occur around the valve at cryogenic temperatures.
Both SOMAS butterfly valves and ball segment valves have been developed as cryogenic valves. Cryogenic valves are available with metal seat or fiberglass filled PTFE seat.
