October 2012 – Automated Lined Ball Valves

XLB, Autmoated Lined Ball Valve, Vane Actuators, Matryx, Xomox

Stockton Valve Product’s automation specialists custom build actuation packages for almost any requirement. Recently, Stockton produced a series of automated line ball valves using Xomox XLB Lined Ball Valves, Matryx Vane Actuators, and custom built brackets and couplings.

XOMOX XLB Lined Ball Valves offer economical solutions for the vast majority of chemical applications while maintaining the highest possible degree of performance in terms of in-line leakage and fugitive emissions. Xomox’s  innovative “pressure assisted” SX seal device provides the highest protection from fugitive emissions.The XLB dynamic body joint design retains pressure boundary during thermal cycles.

The lower torque of XLB lined ball valve designs permits use of smaller actuators, allowing cost reductions and creating space saving opportunities. In this situations Stockton’s automation experts used the Matryx Vane Actuator to automate these XLB Lined Ball Valves.

Matryx Vane Actuators are smaller than other types of actuators in the torque output range of up to 36,000 in-lb. Matryx Vane Actuators produce a high ratio of torque output per pound of actuator weight. Exhaustive factory tests and customer applications have substantiated the long life of Matryx Vane Actuators.

New Line Sheets

Stockton has developed new line sheets highlighting a few of the major products we sell.  These lines sheets are separated by product type in order to target your specific needs. Whether you are interested in manual Xomox High Performance Butterfly Valves or fully automated Neway Gate Valves, we have got you covered.

Head over to the Literature Page to view all of the newly developed line sheets.
