Belleville Spring Washer | Valve Leak Prevention Calculator
Temperature sensitive applications, such as flow control valve operation in the petro-production environment, require components that are capable of reacting to unpredictable expansion and contraction behaviors. Solon Mfg. products exceed industry standards to confidently withstand extreme temperatures as well as corrosive environments. Whether you have a custom material specification or unique application challenge, Solon’s full-service design engineering and production teams can help you with your requirements. An American Belleville spring manufacturer since 1949, Solon Manufacturing Co. supports pump and valve applications such as:
- Ball seat valves
- Butterfly valves
- Gaskets, sealings, packings
- Flow control
- LNG / FLNG
- Valve live loading applications
- High-temperature pipe flanges
Solon® Belleville Springs and Solon® Flange Washers should be used to keep bolted joints tight when the bolted joint integrity is a concern.
Belleville springs maintain load on a seal, gasket or packing in valve actuators and other valve components. They can be easily retrofitted into existing valve designs with minimal revisions.

Some low-stress Belleville springs can be designed to "snap over". This is similar to an "oil-can" effect. Some relief valves are designed with snap-acting Bellevilles' to open the valve quickly at the desired load.
