ZETRIX – The ARI process valve. Now available with butt weld ends!
16 February 2018
Absolutely tight, durable and versatile – for isolation and control even in harsh industrial environments. ARI-Armaturen’s metallic sealing, triple offset ZETRIX process valve is a premium product offering optimal performance and reliability. The impressive range has a new addition with a version with butt weld ends now available, as an alternative to the double flanged and fully lugged designs.
The ZETRIX combines all the benefits of a metallic sealing process valve with the advantages of a butterfly design. With its small footprint and reduced weight, this cutting-edge butterfly valve is very easy to handle. The triple offset principle guarantees a permanently tight seal, conforming to leakage rate A as per DIN EN 12266-1, because the valve fits precisely and closes without friction. Available in cast or stainless steel, it can optionally be used as an isolation and control valve, proving the versatility of this range.
The design was developed and optimised using the very latest generation of tools, including the finite element method, contact angle calculations, flow simulations and characteristic measurements. The valve can be insulated in line with industrial standards and has been tested and approved as fire safe (ISO 15848), German clean air regulations (TA-Luft), SIL and subjected to the acid test. In many applications there is an increased fire hazard, in the event of a fire it is essential the valve must continue to meet internal and external leak-tightness requirements for a defined period of time if exposed to direct flame impingement.
Suitable for liquids, gases and vapour in a wide range of applications, for example in oil and gas processing, refineries, petrochemicals, solar thermal power stations, power plants, district heating, pulp and paper, steelworks, sugar processing and industrial and plant manufacturing in general.
