We are manufacturing two 16″ 4500# Parallel Slde Gate valves in A182 F92 High Alloy material. These valves will be installed in the Main Steam line of the Heat Recovery Steam Generator of a Combined Cycle Power Plant in Asia, with a total combined capacity of 1.5GW.
Parallel Slide Gate Valves are an alternative to double disc valves, having two discs but only one wedge instead of two. The discs are in permanent contact with the seat rings, getting a tight seal due to the horizontal Inconel spring located in between and without the wedging system’s help.
In this pictures, we can see one of the bodies after the machining process.
