New Swagelok 83DXL Series 3-way Ball Valve for Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Filling Stations
CNG dispensers located at filling stations represent a very challenging application requiring high pressures and frequent cycling. These conditions can result in costly premature failure in many 3-way valves. We have used our design experience and knowledge of the application to develop an innovative new valve to provide our customers with a solution in these situations. The 83DXL series valve has improved cycle life performance in "fast fill" CNG dispenser applications and so reduces downtime from replacing and rebuilding valves.
The 83DXL has the following design features different than the standard valve:
• Higher cycle life by using PEEK seats and a special vent orifice
• Ease of actuation by utilizing an “L” pattern flow path for 90-degree actuation
• A more secure, phenolic handle with a longer set screw and bore through stem
Product ratings are identical to standard 83 and L83 series with PEEK seats.
Due to the improved cycle life performance, seal replacement kits will not be available.
Insert "DXL" into a standard ordering number.
The 83DXL series valve is not available with NGV 3.1, NGV 4.6, or ECE R110 certification.
The product catalog, Trunnion Ball Valves, MS-01-166, has been updated. PTR-5010 test, containing supporting data on the cycle life performance, is also available.
