Product Announcement from VAT, Inc.
VAT's stainless steel high vacuum isolation valves feature no cams or bearings in the process environment making the ideal HV gate valve for demanding process environments.
Additionally, the VAT Series 09.1 valve features a wedge sealing system which eliminates the guidance bearings, lubrication and complex sealing mechanisms found on conventional HV gate valves making this valve an excellent choice for vacuum isolation in harsh process environments. In addition, the design of the S09.1 valve allows the valve to be opened against full differential pressure (1bar) offering the advantage of a high conductance valve for vacuum system roughing lines.
Designed for harsh processes and applications, these valves significantly increase operating intervals. The quick and easy maintenance design of the valve allows for easy access to the removable wedge sealing plate and for cleaning and adjustment-free installation.
The Series 09.1 valve is available in both pneumatic and manual actuation in sizes DN63-160mm (2 ½" - 6") with ASA/ANSI, ISO, CF or custom flanges.
