Small-Bore Valves Range Fully Qualified to -29°C

We are proud to announce that we have completed extended temperature qualification on our small-bore valves range to -29°C.

The market has been calling for small-bore valves capable of operating at colder temperatures and Connector Subsea Distribution have responded to meet that challenge.

We have recently re-qualified our metal and soft seated small-bore valves to -29°C as part of our ongoing efforts to ensure our products are fit for the most complex market requirements.

This qualification program has been carried out in accordance with API 6A / 17D and TR-1234.

Key features and benefits of the range:

  • Entire portfolio qualified to highest industry standards and requirements.
  • Both MTM and soft seal available for ½”, 1” and 2” in various pressure classes.
  • Interchangeable ball and seats for MTM and soft seat valves.
  • Unique electron beam welded body enables 70% reduction in potential leak paths.
  • Significant reduction in both weight and size.

Design basis:

  • Working Pressure: 5,000 PSI – 15,000 PSI
  • Operating Temperature: -29°C to +145°C
  • Maximum Water Depth: 3,030m
  • Design Codes: API 6A (ISO 10423), API 17D (ISO 13628-4) TR 1234
  • Product Specification Level: PSL 3 / PSL 3G
