GROVE valve measuring.

The GROVE™ B5 valve is constructed of forged components bolted together in a side-entry design. The standard designs are ideal for transmission and standard production operations. This design also allows for specialty configurations required in applications such as subsea installation and LNG plants.

  • Onshore operations—separation, wastewater disposal, tank battery, recovery, SAGD, and oil sands applications
  • Pipeline operations—transmission, emergency shutdown, pigging, and pump and compressor station applications
  • Liquid tank storage—tank storage isolation, custody transfer, metering skids, and loading and unloading applications
  • Offshore operations—production, separation, processing and compression, and storage, metering, and exporting
  • Subsea operations—fluid control and isolation for manifolds, flowlines, and riser
Side-entry ball valves
  • Antistatic device
  • Bearing blocks that absorb the pressure load on the ball
  • Body relief valve for overpressure due to liquid thermal expansion
  • Bolted construction that permits disassembly in the field for repairs
  • Built-in sealant injection system for emergency seat seal
  • Double-barrier stem seals
  • Double-sealing barrier in both directions
  • Integral stop in the adapter plate for a permanent reference to open and closed position
  • Large-diameter, short coupled trunnions that reduce unit bearing loads and operating torque
  • Metal-backed, self-lubricating PTFE sleeve bearing and thrust washers that reduce torque and extend service life
  • Nickel plating for trim parts
  • Primary metal-to-metal seal and secondary protected synthetic O-ring seal
  • Stem that is separated from the ball, delivering an antiblowout design
  • Trunnion-mounted ball for ease of operation at high pressure
