GROVE Side Entry Ball Valve B5

The Grove split body side entry ball valves are manufactured in a wide range of sizes and pressure classes. In the standard versions these valves are specified for transmission pipelines, pumping, compression and reinjection units, offshore platforms, onshore terminals, pig traps, measuring stations and surge relief skids. In the special versions the valves are used for subsea installations and in LNG plants. The split body construction allows the use of forged materials in the various grades of carbon steel, stainless steel and high alloys, thus complying with the most severe service conditions.

Body Construction
The body is made of three forged parts and the bolted construction allows disasembly on-site for inspections and possible repairs. After maintenance, the valve being of standard DPE design, tightness of the seating surfaces can be assessed by pressurising the body cavity only, before any repressurisation of the pipeline. A body drain is located in the lowest part of the body cavity and consists of a NPT drain valve with safety plug.
