GAS TURBINE QUICK-CLOSING VALVE TYPE KVH-GT
The fastest ever – the high-end solution, developed for emergency shutdown application (ESD) on next generation High Efficiency Gas Turbines. Based on the contribution of the entire KÜHME know-how, closing times of less than 150 milliseconds are achieved and guaranteed by means of performance optimised technology for valve type’s of complete size spectrum. The use of special high temperature materials allows their application for cutting-edge Gas Turbines with enhanced performance parameters.
DN 50 TO DN 350
MAX. 70,0 BAR G
MAX. + 260°C
- Closing time ≤ 150 milliseconds
- High safety level within ESD operation through zero leakage
- For performance-oriented use at high pressures and extreme temperatures
- Heavy duty design for high amount of operating cycles
- High-performance valve with a long service life
The linear movement of the valve stem is generated by a strong pneumatic actuator which is energized by a solenoid valve. The automatic forced quick-closing function – in less than 150 miiliseconds – is ensured by a heavy-duty spring. The valve plug is equipped with a special soft sealing element ensuring premium tightness (leakage rate A acc. EN 12266-1).
