SOMAS on/off valves - reliability in tough conditions
The on/off valve should shut off the flow and be tight in the flow direction. It should ideally have a low flow resistance in open position. The shut-off valve often has a pneumatic actuator either double acting or single acting.
Many SOMAS valves are suitable for use as on/off valves
We have a number of valves in our product line suitable for on/off applications. SOMAS full flow ball valve SKV has very low flow resistance.
Another good choice is SOMAS butterfly valves. Due to its solid construction and maintenance-free design, this type of valve is a perfect solution for most on/off applications. It is also very attractively priced.
The ball segment valve also provides good value for money and is suitable for on/off applications. This type of valve is originally designed for control applications, but its open flow makes it a good choice for most on/off applications as well.
