Bonomi’s Valpres API 608 Floating Ball Valve range has achieved the high standard demanded by NORSOK; the Norwegian petroleum industry’s benchmark endorsement for superior safety and performance.

Developed to offer outstanding performance in extreme environments, the NORSOK approved API 608 exceeds the requirements set by ASME B16.34, offering a superior level of reliability for the rigorous requirements of the petrochemical, power, oil & gas and water treatment markets.

Bonomi offers a large UK stock holding of this versatile valve which is available in a wide range of sizes from ½” to 6” (Class 150 and Class 300) and ½” to 2” (Class 600) and can often be supplied on a next day – or even same day – delivery basis.

Reduced bore is also an option in sizes of 2” or above. Side entry constructed, with a two-piece bolted body, the ball valves operate in a temperature range of -196°C to 420°C. A352 LCB/A351, CF8M and super-duplex stainless steel models are available ex-stock with a wide range of alternative materials made to order, including nickel alloy, low alloy CS, titanium and various stainless steels.

The API 608 range incorporates a number of useful features including increased thickness and oversized driving train. These characteristics, together with construction from high performance materials, make the valve ideal for severe and demanding environments and particularly reliable in actuation applications.

With a fire safe design meeting API 607, ISO 10497 and API 6FA standards, the range is available with various extensions including extended stem, extended bonnet for high temperatures and extended bonnet for low temperatures, whilst also offering soft and metal seat options.
