Schneider Electric's Venta VB-7000 bronze globe valves have ultra-tight seal design.
Schneider Electric introduced the updated Venta VB-7000 series bronze globe valves. The valves have ultra-tight seal design that provides tighter close-off with near zero leakage (ANSI V rating) for greater energy savings. The seal also doubles the differential pressure rating (87 psi) to take on the most applications. The valves feature 100:1 range for higher performance, more precise temperature control, and stronger stem design. The RoHS-compliant valves are equipped with the same CV flow ratings, actuator mountings, triple temp valve packing, and plug/stem connection that existed in previous iterations.
