The shut-off valve is designed with a floating ball and with either a full or a reduced bore. Users can choose between block & bleed or double block & bleed configuration. The model PBV-FS operates with low torque and low wear, and its surface is also corrosion-resistant.

The compact design of the valve enables installation that saves space and minimises leakage. The model PBV-FS prevents any fugitive emissions (leak test in accordance with EN ISO 15848-1). The valve is also tested for fire safety in accordance with API 607, ISO 10497 and BS6755-2.
