Pump Engineering, Ltd., U.K., has introduced its Type 808 bellows sealedglobe valve, a member of the company’s range of valves available in a bellows seal design.The company notes that this valve is an ideal choice for critical, zero-fugitive emission, high-purity or high-vacuum applications where the potential for hazardous emissions has to be eliminated.

The bellows forms a flexible static seal that is leak-free, as long as the integrity of the bellows remains intact. However, should the valve fail, a set of back-up packing allowsit to continue to operate safely until repairs can be made. 

The valve is available in sizes in., ½ in., in., and 1 in., and standard features include interchangeable trim sets, bellows packing, PTFE CV ring back-up packing, and PTFE bellows gasket.  The trim characteristics available are linear, equal percentage, quick-open, or double taper.  A range of accessories to enable the valve to suit specific application requirements includes positioners, filter regulators, gauges, I/P limit switches, and solenoid valves.

Badger Type 808 Bellows Valves can be widely used in industrial applications including research and process plants on liquids, gases, or steam, Pump Engineering notes.
