The National Science Foundation has recognized the potential of Big Horn Valve's technology for pollution prevention. The research agency has funded BHVI, Moog, Inc. and Florida State University to develop a magnetically coupled, pneumatically operated, emission-free valve for moderate pressure and temperature service. The valve is targeted for use in refineries, petrochemical plants and other environmentally sensitive applications. Key to this design, a permanent magnet coupling enables actuation across the valve housing, which serves as a positive barrier to external leakage. High-strength magnets and low rotational friction combine to provide a four-to-one torque safety factor.
The High-Pressure, High Torque MagBall™ Valve has a body that can withstand 2500 psi. and in the 2 inch size is capable of providing torques up to 5000 inch-lbs. to open and close the valve under the harshest conditions. This torque capability is equal to or greater than any stemmed valve.
Big Horn Valve's unique StemLess” magnetic ball valve technology offers major advancements over traditional ball valve technology.
These valve technology advances provide the end user with the following capabilities:
Over the past eight years, Big Horn Valve, Inc. (BHVI) has developed the a zero-emission, axially rotated valve that offers high flow efficiency, a small valve envelope and no-leak path between the fluid/gas and the environment. BHVI has developed and tested prototype valves for water, petrochemical and cryogenic applications. These valve designs center around innovative patented and patent pending technology.
