Why use the Cryogenic Fire Block Valve?

Habonim cryogenic fire block ball valves (FBV) are standard cryogenic C47W ball valve series which are equipped with a Fire Block Valve package to allow for ESD operation. The valves are equipped with a fusible link and emergency cable which allow a fast shutdown in case of a fire or a different emergency.

These valves are suitabe for a temperature range from -269°C to +230⁰C and are commonly used on ISO containers for LNG transport. They are supplied with extended buttweld (XBW) as a standard but can be equipped with customized connections. 

The minimal liquid layer between bonnet and spindle ensures a leak-free stem sealing. All Habonim cryogenic ball valves feature the patented Total HermetiX™ stem sealing system which is certified acc. to ISO 15848-1 (500.000 cycles) and are supplied with double body sealing for maximum integrity. The use of short body bolts minimize thermal expansion and prevents leakage at the body seals.
