The shift to EBRO will be a major upgrade in quality for our resilient seated butterfly valve customers. It was an easy decision to make on our end, based on the lengths they’ve gone to engineer and precision machine their high-end offerings. We encourage you to take a minute to understand these advanced features now available by reading this pdf and viewing the short video below.
The addition of a raised locating ring in the seat that corresponds with a recess in the valve body assures the liner fits into position perfectly. The ring eliminates movement when the disc comes into place, and bolsters this high wear area.
The special construction of the liner incorporates triple O-ring seals molded into the neck of the seat to enhance the stem sealing capabilities of the valves. This eliminates the potential for stem corrosion and process leaks to the atmosphere which are common issues in most resilient seated butterfly valve designs.
EBRO Valves feature three stem bearings instead of the standard two. By adding an additional bearing to the top part of the stem they achieve optimal guidance, positive location and eliminate side loading. For the user, this means smooth operation and extra-long service life.
The valve body is completely precision machined, ensuring that the valve liner and shaft locations can be accurately positioned. Benefits of this precision include minimal operational wear and an extended reliable service life.
