Designed in accordance with the industry's latest standards, the new Pacific(r)CSV line of cast steel gate, globe and check valves from Crane ChemPharma & Energy provide the highest level of quality and performance in demanding applications.

"Pacific has partnered with a world-renowned foundry to deliver the highest quality of cast steel valves to our customers worldwide," said Global Business Line Manager, Tarun Shivlani, "These valves have been designed to exceed API 624 requirements and achieve industry leading fugitive emissions with superior packing selection, and the highest degree of manufacturing control."

Subject to Crane's rigorous development and testing process, each Pacific(r)CSV valve is uniquely built and tested per API 598 standards to offer exceptional performance in the global oil & gas, petrochemical, power and refining industries. The globe valves also comply with API 623, standard released specifically for globe valves. With higher Cv rates and lower operating torques than alternative valve types, Pacific(r)CSV valves deliver superior value to users in demanding applications.

The new line of cast steel valves has several improved features that enhance reliability and O&M including:

  • The gate valve's fully-guided wedge, which ensures smooth operation in both horizontal and vertical orientations to deliver improved resistance to sticking
  • The globe valve's uniquely designed line contact between disc and seat, which enables lower seating torque and faster set up.
  • The swing check's disc fastener, which is restrained by the bonnet to eliminate the risk of a displaced disc and prevent damage to downstream equipment.

These valves are available in various sizes and materials of construction, including special alloys and stainless materials.
