The Metal Seated Trunnion Ball Valve is made for high pressure and high temperature environments, as well as, for abrasive and corrosive uses.

Cast Steel Trunnion Ball Valve

Cast Steel Trunnion Ball Valve has endless variety because the design of the molds for the cast may vary in size, structure, and other features.

Trunnion ball valve design

  • Trunnion Mounted Structure used to seal or block the flow of whatever is in the pipe.
  • Valve weight, size, and material strictly conform to the API standard.
  • A mounted ball valve with a bleeder is required to make sure that pressure surges in pipes are controlled or avoided. 
  • Ideal for bi-directional sealing. It can stop or block the movement of the upstream and downstream flow.

What is a Trunnion Ball Valve?

High-pressure operations are what is trunnion ball valve is ideal for. The design anchors the ball valve trunnion meaning a seal for both upwards and downward streams are achieved.

XHVAL industrial valve co has different types and materials for every trunnion ball valve need, in whatever application is required. Spanning over three decades of expertise, XHVAL trunnion ball valve manufacturers produce customized ball valves made from the highest quality materials and that adhere to the top API standard.

Advantages of the Trunnion-mounted Ball Valve

  • Lower operating torque

The operating torque of the trunnion-mounted ball valves is reduced due to additional support provided by the trunnion, giving reinforcement to the bottom of the ball and the top.

  • Ease of operation

 A quarter-turn is easier to operate as opposed to valves that a require a full turn. It is preferred by industries that require quick maneuverability and shut-off.

  • Minimized seat wear

The isolated nature of the trunnion-mounted ball prevents the wear of seats resulting in its durability and longer service life.

  • High and low-pressure control 

It is ideal for high and low-pressure control because of the sealing of the ball valve by a separate spring mechanism.

Trunnion Ball Valve vs Floating

The main difference between the ball valve trunnion vs floating ball valve lies in their mechanism. The floating ball valve is only connected to a top shaft or the valve stem, while the trunnion-mounted valve’s ball is connected to a bottom shaft or the trunnion.
