Babcock Valves has supplied to General Electric a complete package of valves for Bangladesh Unique 600 MW natural gas Combined Cycle Power Plant. Among the valves of this supply there is one critical MSIV for the Main Steam line in material A335 P92. This is a Babcock Valves Parallel Slide designed 14” 2500# Special Class Gate valve. The valves installed in A335 P92 lines with temperatures above 600 C and multiple daily operations require a free expansion design valve. Babcock Parallel Slide design not only allows the free expansion of the spindle without generating overstresses in the remaining valve elements, but also prevents the valve from getting stuck in closed position due to thermal transients or application of excessive torque.
