High Pressure Gate Valves and Frac Components

Universal offers BSO (Ball Screw Operators) on most high-pressure gate valves. They are available with flanged ends in standard bore sizes from 4-1/16” through 7-1/16” in working pressures of 10,000 psi and 15,000 psi. Double acting hydraulic gate valves are also available.  

Reduced Torque

  • Reduces torque as much as 50%
  • 2 Heavy duty thrust bearings assist in further reducing overall torque

Valve Features

Full-Bore Thru-Conduit Design

  • Maximizes valve service life
  • Eliminates the collection of destructive particles

Floating Slab Gate and Seats

  • “T” slotted gate allows the gate to float, reducing deflection and binding
  • Produces a positive pressure energized seal
  • Body pressure equalizes across the seat ring/body bushing, eliminating body erosion in the seat pockets

Metal-to-Metal Seals

  • Body/bonnet interface, gate/seat ring/body bushing interfaces, body/body bushing interface
  • Gate and seat are overlaid with Tungston Carbide
  • Valve bodies and bonnets are forged steel

Metal-to-Metal Backseat

Long Life, Low Maintenance

  • Simple routine maintenance program limits repairs, eases operation, protects against corrosion, and extends service life
  • In-line Repairability
