Model T10BR API 6A Gate Valve

Model T10BR API 6A Gate Valve 10,000 PSI

The model T10BR API 6A gate valve has a balanced stem and recirculating balls. It has been developed to manually operate large-diameter and high-pressure valves.

It is used to serve as a on-off valve in oil and gas services up to 10,000 PSI.

It is manufactured in sizes from 4-1/16" to 9". It is suitable for use in production trees, conduction systems and fracture trees.
Metal to Metal Seal:
Metal-Metal seal between gate and seat and between seat and body.
Bidirectional Sealing:
The gate and the seats seal in both directions.
Back Seat:

Both stems have a metal-metal back seat, which allows for the packing to be replaced while the valve is in service.

Stem Packing:
The non-elastomeric steam packing is unaffected by H2S, CO2, amines or any other chemical substances normally found in oil or gas wells. Its design favors low operating torque under any service condition.
Easy Operation:
The valve opens and closes without needing excessive torque. 

The screw-and-nut actuating system with recirculating balls is for high performance, which allows the valve to be operated directly without the need of a gear box. This system minimizes the number of handwheel turns for operation. After the necessary number of turns required for closing the valve, the handwheel must be backed off ¼ turn.
Body without Penetrations:
The valve body has no penetrations. For safety, the grease fitting is located on the bonnet, downstream from the backseat.
Stem Shear Pin:

The stem is protected against over-torquing by the stem shear pin. The pin can be readily replaced without disassembling the bonnet

Replaceable Seats:

The floating seats can be easily replaced in the field.

Seat Protector:

A protecting ring between seat and body protects the lip of the metal-metal seal.

Valves with Actuator:
The API 6A model T10BR gate valves can be converted into actuated valves by adding pneumatic or hydraulic actuators.
