GS Valves provide reliable fluid control

GS Valves range from Celeros Flow Technology combines advanced levels of body configuration, trims and actuation to produce a valve assembly capable of premium performance at a competitive price

Celeros Flow Technology says it offers Copes-Vulcan General Service (GS) valves for reliable and economical fluid control in multiple power and process applications.

Suitable for controlling water, steam, gas and most other fluids, Copes-Vulcan GS Valves are ideally suited for non-severe flow control in conventional and nuclear power stations as well as oil & gas production.

Typical applications include heater drains, gas and fuel oil control, feedwater control and steam/gas pressure reduction.

Representing significant refinement in control valve design and performance, Copes-Vulcan GS Valves combine advanced levels of body configuration, trims and actuation to produce a valve assembly capable of premium performance at a competitive price. They feature a straight-through globe style body design with streamlined precision cast bodies to provide smooth contours and transition areas. The result is minimised flow restriction and maximised capacity. Computer calculated cross sections and wall thicknesses assure high structural integrity while maintaining a very favorable strength-to-weight ratio.

GS Valves are available in .75–8-inches (20–200mm) sizes as standard, and ANSI pressure classes of 125–600. They can be specified in most standard castable material choices, with either flanged, welded or threaded end connections. GS Valves can also be equipped with an extensive array of standardised trims to meet virtually any general service requirement.

A number of high performance trims – such as Raven, HUSH, Tandem, and GAD – are also available and can be used to control occurrences of cavitation, flashing or noise. All trims are quick change to assure ease of maintenance and are fully interchangeable between like sizes to ensure maximum flexibility and reduced inventory requirements.

The GS Valve range is complemented by a complete range of 700 series pneumatic diaphragm actuators that can handle supply air pressure as high as 80 psig (550 kPag) and provides performance usually associated with much more expensive actuation systems.

With a worldwide reputation for quality and reliability, Copes-Vulcan GS Valves and actuators are designed in accordance with relevant ANSI and ASME certifications and meet the requirements of ISO-9001.

For applications involving extreme environments, especially hostile fluids, or pressure classes greater than ANSI 600, Celeros Flow Technology offers Copes-Vulcan SD-Severe Duty Control Valves.
