According to announcements released by Energy Products Company, the WKM Pow-R-Seal Valve in its catalog is a dependable, through-conduit expanding gate valve. The seats come off the seating area prior to cycling to prolong efficiency of the seating area. The valve’s design eliminates destructive turbulence. The pressure drop in a full-bore valve does not exceed that through an equal length of a pipe with the same diameter.
The WKM Pow-R-Seal gate valve is used in launchers and receivers, decoking systems, gathering lines, etc. For six decades, the WKM Pow-R-Seal valve has found application in oil, gas, chemicals, water, slurry, and other applications. It is a high-quality, and rugged gate valve used where safe and reliable seals are of critical importance. The parallel expanding gate design creates a tight mechanical seal that is not affected by vibrations and changes in pressure. The cast steel body is resistant to pipeline bending that can compromise the effectiveness of the seal. The all-metal seals deliver drop tight sealing and tight shutoff. The seals can work in temperatures up to 1000° F (538° C). Leakage rates are in compliance with API 6D and ISO 5208 standards.

WKM Pow-R-Seal gate valve’s smooth continuous bore reduces turbulence. Additionally, the seat faces are outside the flow stream and are protected from contact with the lading whether the valve is in the open or closed position. The WKM Pow-R-Seal gate valve’s full bore makes it possible to run pigs, scrapers, or hot tap cutters through the valves without danger of damaging the valve, lodging the scraper, or jamming it with metal cuttings. WKM Pow-R-Seal valve’s design provides the following specific advantages for reliable performance and long life, even in fluid, gas, steam, and hot water critical services up to 1000° F (538° C).
The WKM Pow-R-Seal valve’s parallel expanding gate design provides a tight mechanical seal, upstream and downstream simultaneously, which is normally unaffected by pressure variations or vibration. The seal is unaffected by pressure surges, vibration, or heat under normal operating conditions. First, the seat insert contacts the gate. Then, the insert is compressed, and a metal-to-metal seal is established.
In the fully closed position, the segment has engaged with an end stop, and the gate is wedged downward, expanding the segment and gate so that they form a tight mechanical closure against the upstream and downstream seats. Venting the body cavity will provide total, tight shutoff. During travel towards the opening, the gate slides across the wedge angle of the segment, collapsing the assembly so that it travels freely between the seal faces. The patented LeverLock gate centralizer holds the mechanism in the neutral position until seal expansion is required.
