Quick opening valves play a key part in boiler blowdown sequencing and other aspects of operating and maintaining boilers. These valves provide large changes in flow without delay. That being said, quick opening valves are up against a lot of pressure and need to function reliably to help your boiler environment work the way it should. It’s important to choose valves for boilers that will stand up to harsh environments, high pressure, and continuous usage to avoid downtime and other problems.

When you’re looking the best quick opening valves for boilers, look no further than Everlasting. Our valves hold up to the promise of their name. They last for ages, even in the harshest of conditions. That’s because we’ve designed them to wear in, not out, with a unique self-lapping system that cleans and polishes the valve, tightening the seal with use. Our valve selection began with self-lapping rotating disc valves specifically to deal with abrasive slurries in boiler blowdown service. You can rely on us for all of your boiler valve needs — we’ve been doing this since 1906.

Quick Opening Everlasting Valves – All the Details

To start with, our quick opening valves meet ASME and ANSI code. Both American National Standards Institute and American Society of Mechanical Engineers codes are stringent. You can rest assured that our quick opening valves are of the utmost quality, keeping your boiler compliant.

They are available in various sizes, ranging from one inch to two and a half inches, in iron and steel body materials. You can choose between screw end and flanged end types, combining all of these features to find the best valve for your needs.

We’ve made our quick opening valves for boilers self-lapping and leakproof, and they get better with use. The line pressure and heavy spring hold the disc tightly against the body seat to seal off the flow, until operation when the disc slides across the body seat. The self-lapping action of the rotating disc ensures that the disc can’t hang up on boiler scale, important to the function of your boiler, while keeping the precision lapped surface clean.

With these valves, you won’t have to adjust the post packing. It does it all by itself, using a spring and line pressure. No more erosion or leakage of the stuffing box for you to deal with! And features like lever operation ensure that the valves are fast to open, serving your needs well.

If you need both quick opening valves and slow opening valves in one body, we can do that for you, too. Our duplex valves and uni-tandem valves also meet ASME and ANSI code. They are made of carbon steel and feature the same quality construction and design that ensure the valves will last through a long lifetime of service.
