For Oil&Gas fields, Gemels produces ball valves from ¼”up to 36”,
according to the international norms and to the specifications of
the biggest global players in downstream, midstream e upstream
fields, both for onshore and offshore application.
When required, for critical application and for special project specifications, Gemels is able to provide lean and customized solutions, especially studied based on the clients’ needs.
Ensuring material 100% Made in Italy/EU, we produce ball valves with different materials, like: Carbon steel, Stainless steel, Duplex, Super duplex, Alloy, Inconel.
Our range of products includes ball valves with Floating e Trunnion design, soft and metal seated, SBB, DBB, Fully Welded, Wafer, 3/4way, valves for cryogenic and high temperature, side/end/top entry, HIPPS system.
In addition to manual valves, cooperating with the most important manufacturers of actuators, Gemels supplies also the complete package, valve with actuator pneumatic, electric, Gas-Over-Oil and hydraulic.
The RISING STEM ball valve performance is based on slope and
rotation mechanism of the stem and ball. This allows to eliminate
the rubbing of the ball against the seal, avoiding any damage.
When the valve is closed, the ball is in contact with the seat, ensuring a tight seal. When the valve starts opening, the ball tilts, moving away from the seat, and the line flow passes uniformly. Then, the ball rotates to the fully open position. The absence of ball scraping against the seat, during both the opening and the closing, allows to have low torques (with the consequent reduction of the actuators dimensions), high flows and optimal long-term performance.
This type of valve is suitable for high temperatures, abrasive liquids (with possible solid bodies), applications requiring zero leakage and frequent maintenance operations.
The design of this kind of valves is TOP ENTRY, allowing the inspection and repair of the valve, simplifying the maintenance.
