Pentair’s New Vanessa Triple Offset Valve Offers Zero Leakage For Non-Critical Applications

Pentair Valves & Controls announces the expansion of its leading Vanessa Triple Offset Valves (TOVs) product line with the launch of the Series 30-RS. The new manual triple offset valve is uniquely designed to address the need for zero leakage isolation in non-critical applications in the oil and gas and process industries.

Engineered by the leader in triple offset valve technology, the Vanessa 30-RS is specially designed for applications which require non-critical fluids isolation in lower pressure or temperature. Its safer bolted-on seat allows for true positive isolation when pressure is applied from the shaft side, thus minimizing the risk of dangerous mechanical failure compared to other bolted-seat designs.

By achieving zero leakage tightness to API 598, the new Vanessa option provides a smarter solution for operators seeking premium performance, upgraded valve designs and reduced maintenance requirements. The Vanessa Series 30-RS handles temperatures up to 350°C and pressures up to ASME class 300, and is available in A216 WCB or A351 CF8M Double Flanged body.

“This addition to Pentair’s TOV portfolio has its own unique features and complements our Vanessa Series 30,000 range by offering customers a choice for maximum versatility and safety in non-critical isolation operations,” comments Alberto Bertamoni, global business director, Triple Offset Valves, Pentair Valves & Controls.
