ValvTechnologies added bidirectional flow capabilities to its existing V1 valve product line. The company said it is the first backpressure-resistant, metal-seated ball valve on the market. In applications such as boiler feed recirculation valves, feedwater heater isolation bypass valves, and feedwater isolation bypass block valves, the V1 prevents the load spring from collapsing, providing tight shutoff or zero leakage in the preferred direction after a reverse flow condition. The bidirectional flow capabilities protect against damage to the internal components and load spring when the valve is exposed to backpressure.
