Methods and Precautions for Use

Z040÷Z046 CE-marked ball valves meet the requirements of PED Directive 2014/68/EU and/or ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU.

1) All standard Z040÷Z046 valves can be used in a temperature range of -10°C to +150°C.

For different temperatures, the valve should be equipped with seals made of material suitable for the required operating temperature.

2) They are equipped with devices against internal overpressure, such devices as balance hole or etched seat are available upon specific request from the end user.

3) The standard Z040÷Z046 series in general, do not accept the presence of ice and fluids subject to instability inside the same, as they would block the OPEN or CLOSE maneuvers, in addition, the increase in fluid volume may damage the valve components making it no longer usable.

4) They can be used at low temperatures (from -29°C and down to -196°C for cryogenic service) or at high temperatures (up to +250°C). Any requests should be agreed upon by the customer with the sales department at the order/offer stage.

5) Use for "industrial" oxygen use only if thoroughly degreased and packed in special bags. Any medical use should be specified when ordering/bidding.
