High-pressure valves are used to regulate the flow of gasses, liquids and other media through pipes, tubing, tanks and other containers. There are many valve options to choose from, including some that provide on/off control. The type of high-pressure valve you decide to use will depend on the specific requirements of your applications, including temperature and pressure ratings. Read on to learn more about high-pressure valves below!
What are High-Pressure Valves?
High-pressure valves, including NPT needle valves, NPT check valves, air actuators, ball valves and double block and bleed valves, are used to control the flow of high-pressure fluid in pneumatic and hydraulic systems. They are manufactured for calibration operations and control flow through shut-off regulation and diversion. Many industries across Canada, such as petrochemical, pulp and paper, chemical and food processing industries, heavily rely on double block and bleed valves to control the flow of high-pressure fluids.
Applications of Double Block and Bleed Valves
High-pressure bleed valves can be used in a variety of applications, including:
- Isolating pressure between the main pipeline and the instrument
- Draining or venting pipeline loops that can’t be drained or vented with the main pipeline
- Isolating pressure tapings when measuring differential pressure on vessels
- Isolating upstream and downward stream pressure tapings on a filter when measuring differential pressure across the filter.
- Draining or venting the filter bowl
They are designed to withstand high-pressure ratings and ensure leak-free operation.
Hy-Lok’s High-Pressure Bleed Valves
At Hy-Lok Canada, we are committed to providing our customers with high-quality high-pressure bleed valves. Our double block and bleed valves feature a pressure rating of up to 10,000 psig (1380 bar) at temperatures rating from -100 ºF to 450 ºF, making them suitable for most high-pressure applications. They can be manufactured using 316 stainless steel, carbon steel, alloy 400 and other custom materials to withstand the demanding conditions of your applications.
Hy-Lok’s double block and bleed valves are also available in MP, HP Cone & Threaded and NPT connections to ensure easy integration into any system. Like all Hy-lok components, our high-pressure bleed valves undergo rigorous batch testing to ensure dependable performance in all operating environments. They’re also 100% interchangeable with Swagelok, Parker, and other manufacturers’ components to ensure seamless integration. Our components can also be custom designed in all sizes to suit all applications while providing equal or superior performance to other competitors’ products.
