Reduce Fugitive Emissions Using Belleville Springs

One of the most prevalent causes for ball valve leaks is the loss of bolt preload. When Belleville springs are added to the gland as well as the seat spring of a ball valve, they ensure that the bolt preload is retained to greatly reduce fugitive emissions. Additionally, using Solon® Belleville Springs on ball valves can extend the life of packing, improve performance, and reduce the overall cost of ownership.
