The Series F44 is a fire-safe variant of the renowned Flowserve Worcester three-piece range of ball valves. It has been fire-tested in accordance with ISO 10497 and features graphite gland and body seals, 8 high tensile body connector screws for strength in fire conditions, and an integral location spigot machined on the body connector to ensure correct alignment of the fire lip to the ball in a fire.The design of the valve is such that graphite contamination of the media is now a thing of the past. Further benefits of this product include a mounting platform on the body for ease of ancillary mounting whilst retaining valve integrity, the three-piece valve’s inherent ease of maintenance and its compact and lightweight design.

The F44 is available in either stainless or carbon steel, a variety of end connectors and a range of sizes 8-50mm in a range of materials and with a variety of end connections. Also available as full bore up to 1.1/2″ as the F59 Series.

The F44 is fully PED (Pressure Equipment Directive) approved (97/23/EC).

There are twelve sizes of Norbro double acting or fail safe spring return pneumatic actuators providing a torque range of 11 to 4617 Nm (at an operating pressure of 5.5 bar). This enables efficient and therefore economical torque matching.

A wide range of ancillary equipment can be fitted to meet the most exacting customer requirements. This is an area where Flow Control Solutions Ltd and Worcester has considerable experience and we would be pleased to discuss any process problems. Since the mid-Sixties the Norbro name has been recognised as the leading quarter turn actuator for industry. As proof of this, Norbro pneumatic actuators can be found in a range of applications as diverse as the petrochemical industry, food and beverage, steel production, pharmaceuticals and plastics manufacturing
