The new WKM® Saf-T-Seal™ model “C6B” gate valve is still the most simple, rugged and reliable through-conduit gate valve available -- but now comes with a host of new features that increases low pressure sealing performance, eliminates stem maintenance, and provides a completely blow-out proof stem. Unlike other floating seat slab gate valves, the new WKM Saf-T-Seal model “C6B” gate valve utilizes two floating seats with a peripheral seal assisted by a wave spring that will allow this valve to seal at very low pressures. It comes standard with the Cameron patented “SLS” stem seal, requiring no maintenance. Additionally, the new stem back seat is blowout proof and significantly prolongs stem seal life. These gate valves are fully compliant to API-6D, API-6FA, and now ANSI B16.34. The WKM Saf-T-Seal gate valve has been used worldwide since 1959 in applications such as, mainline and manifold valves in liquid pipelines, storage wells, salt domes, brine /water flood service, emergency shutdown (ESD) and within the nuclear industry The Saf-T-Seal has truly global acceptance and has been installed in major projects in North and South America, Europe and the Middle and Far East. WKM gate valves are known worldwide for their outstanding reliability and longevity – with thousands in service for 30 or more years.
