New SA105 1″ 1500# Kerotest Zero Leakage globe valve manufactured by Babcock Valves in our factory in Bilbao. It is an ASME Section III Class I classified valve for a Nuclear Power Plant located in Catalonia.
Zero Leakage valves are a type of valve that is designed to prevent any leakage of fluid or gas, even under high-pressure and high-temperature conditions. They are used in applications where the escape of fluids or gases could be dangerous, environmentally harmful, or cause significant financial losses.
SA105 material is low-carbon steel with small amounts of manganese, silicon, and other elements. It has good weldability, machinability, and ductility, and is commonly used in applications where high strength, toughness, and resistance to wear and tear are required.
Those are the same kind of valves as the ones we supplied them in the 80’s, showing excellent performance and remarkable durability.
