Checking Valve Repair Kit

The shutdown is just nearby the corner. Early in the morning, I went to the store to check on some ball valve repair kit for the shutdown maintenance job. The repair kit is mostly the internal part of the valve that can be replaced. The valve seat need to be replaced because simple reasons like it has already worn out which resulted to leakage and also because of other reasons like the parts are jammed etc. Many other reason may lead to the valve seat replacement.

In my plant, most of the valve brand used are Worcester and Valtac. Therefore, I checked most of the Worcester and Valtac repair kits which varies from 3/4" to 6". The valve repair kit is also not a cheap stuff. They are damn expansive especially the black seat type which can withstand high temperature. The oil flowing inside my plant may reach up to a maximum of 270oC. That's why we need a quality repair kit that can withstand great temperature and pressure.
