Model T15BR API 6A Gate Valve

Model T15BR API 6A Gate Valve 15.000 PSI

The API 6A model T15BR gate valve features 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 15,000 PSI.

It is manufactured in sizes from 4-1/16" to 7-1/16". 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 feature a metal-metal backseat, which allows for the packings 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 commonly found in oil or gas wells. Its design favors a 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 of high performance, allowing for the valve to be operated directly, without the need of a gear reducer. 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 a stem shear pin. The pin can be easily replaced without disassembling the bonnet.
Replaceable Seats:

The floating seats can be readily replaced in the field.

Seat Protector:

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

Valves with Actuator:
API 6A model T15BR gate valves can be converted into actuated valves by adding pneumatic or hydraulic actuators.
