Structures and Functions of AES® Ball Valves

Seat Seal

 

Seat design assures dead-tight independent sealing simultaneously upstream and downstream. When the ball is in the closed position, scaling is performed by both a primary metal to metal seal and a secondary seal. The inner lip of the metal seal and seat insert ride on the mirror-finished surface of the plated ball. The ball is of a fixed type to rotate about the axis of a trunnion. The seats floating both upstream and downstream are designed to seal by being forced by spring loaded power and fluid pressure tightly against the ball. This results in upstream and downstream bubble-tight seal which functions by spring load power under extremely low pressure differential as well.

Seats are free to move slightly along the longitudinal axis of the valves. The line pressure behind upstream seat ring supplements the seat spring load to force the upstream seal tightly against the ball. The downstream seat also utilizes line pressure (or valve body pressure) and a spring-load supplement to force downstream seat tightly against the ball. This is called o Piston Effect Principle. This results in upstream and downstream bubble-tight seals which function independently under all pressure conditions.

 

Piston Effect Principle

 

Upstream seat
Upstream pressure (P1) is higher than cavity pressure (P2) and so seat ring is forced against the ball by the power of P1X1 which is multiplicator of upstream pressure Px by area differential X between A1 and A2.

Downstream seat
Contrary to upstream, body pressure P2 is higher than downstream pressure P0. The seat ring is forced against the ball by the power of PX and the spring pressure PX is multiplicator of the body pressure P2 by area differential X created by seal transfer between the seat ring and the body.

 

Stem Construction

 

The stem is separate from the ball and is positioned to the upper ball trunnion by hardened steel pins. Bearing blocks are located on the upper and lower ball trunnions which absorb all the pressure load on the ball. The stem is a free member and carries no side thrust. Absence of this side load and friction drag on the stem assures lower operating torque and long trouble-free service.
