SIO metal seated ball valve is a type of ball valve with metal seats designed for critical applications. Our metal seated valve is generally used for isolation, but many are now being used for uni- and bi-directional controls.
The main advantage of a metal seated valve against a soft seated ball valve is its ability to withstand critical applications. The metal seats can endure high temperatures exceeding 1,000° F, hydraulic shock, extreme flashing, and abrasive process fluid. They are also suitable for high-erosion and corrosion services. They are widely used in the oil and gas industries, power generation, petrochemicals, mining, and pulp and paper industries.
