The production process in industrial plants rarely stops. In fact, many companies cannot afford to shut down the entire manufacturing process to perform the necessary cleaning or maintenance protocols, which is why they rely on double block and bleed valves. Read on to learn more about double block and bleed valves and why Hy-Lok Canada should be your number 1 supplier.
What Are Double Block and Bleed Valves?
Double block and bleed valves use a combination of one or more isolation valves (usually ball valves) and one or more vent valves (usually needle or ball valves). The purpose of the block and bleed valve systems is to eliminate the possibility of upstream fluid reaching other components of the system that are downstream. By isolating or blocking fluid flow in the system, double block and bleed valves allow engineers to bleed off fluid from the system and efficiently perform the necessary maintenance, repairs or replacements.
Some industries use double block and bleed valves for sampling, chemical injections, flow diversion, integrity checks for leakage and more. Generally, industries heavily rely on double block and bleed to depressurize a specific section that requires cleaning, maintenance or repairs without shutting down the entire system. By isolating the fluid, companies can seamlessly access different sections of the system and carry out all the necessary repairs and maintenance.
