Tectra Automation boosts process industry with ex-stock OMAL ball valves

OMAL’s Thor split body stainless steel valves can handle extremely aggressive fluids in process applications.

Enhanced performance, greater reliability and longer life: that’s the reputation OMAL’s ball valves have built across the world’s process industries over the last 30 years.

OMAL manufactures a complete range of ball valves for the process industry, which are distributed in sub-Saharan Africa exclusively by drive and control automation specialists Tectra Automation. The company maintains a number of these valves ex-stock, including wafer and split wafer valves and Thor Split Body valves in both carbon steel and stainless steel versions.

The valves are ideal for a wide range of media, including air, water, gas, petroleum and petrochemical products. The stainless steel versions are ideal for highly aggressive media.

The Magnum split wafer, carbon steel Thor Split Body and wafer ball valves are full bore valves without a protruding floating ball for EN 1092-1 ed. 2008 and ANSI B16.5 connecting flanges. Standard features include TFM 1600 soft-seat seals, and TFM 1600 V-pack and additional FKM O-ring seals on the stem for increased durability. These valves are designed according to pressure class PN16-40; ANSI 150-300.

 The Magnum wafer valve is among OMAL’s premium-quality range of ball valves helping the world’s process industries maximise safety, reliability and productivity with precise flow control of liquids and gases.

The stainless steel Thor Split Body valve, for extremely aggressive fluid, features a floating ball and DEVLON soft-seat seal for the pressure class PN16-40; ANSI 150-300.

Each ball valve delivers a closing angle of >7° and is designed with an EN12662-2 antistatic device.

“These valves can also be manufactured with a wide range of additional features for specialised process applications,” explains Malan Bosman, Pneumatics Product Manager, Tectra Automation. “These include the use of LF2 carbon steel for transferring media down to -40° C; glass- and carbon graphite-reinforced PTFE internal seals; and superficial treatments such as white zinc coating and epoxy coating.”

OMAL is one of only four companies in the world certified to manufacture valves and actuators for the oil and gas industry, and offers a complete range of ATEX-approved solutions for explosive or flammable applications.

These products are designed, manufactured and tested at OMAL’s three state-of-the-art ISO 9001-, AD2000- and UNI EN ISO 14001:2004-certified production facilities in Brescia, Italy.

OMAL is distributed exclusively in sub-Saharan Africa by Tectra Automation, a Hytec Group Company.
