The Taurus Series Double Block & Bleed Valves from Armaturenfabrik Franz Schneider provide a double isolation function with a Twin Ball Design and a bleed function by different bleed/vent valve designs. The Block Valves are available from 1" to 6" Full Bore (8" Reduced Bore). The Standard Flanged Connections are offered by default acc. to ASME B16.5. The Ball Valves have an Anti-Blowout Stem Design and an Anti-Static Design and are Fire Safe tested and certified according to API 607 and ISO 10497. The Double Block & Bleed Piping Ball Valves are designed specifically for applications in the oil and gas industry.
The Taurus Series is designed, developed and tested in Germany and certified by TÜV Süd. The assembly is done exclusively in Germany. Raw materials for pressure containing parts are mainly sourced from European countries. Where necessary, PEEK as seat material and Duplex as ball material are provided. This offers customers a real added value. Stems are generally made in XM-19, an austenitic stainless steel grade, which has a greater corrosion resistance and higher yield strength than 316 stainless steel. All other trim materials and all non-wetted parts are provided in 316 stainless steel. Therefore the use in corrosive environment is feasible. For valves in special alloys all wetted parts are made in the special alloy material.
