Valve Live Loading

Valve leaks at the stem are a common industry challenge. Leak prevention is critical to ensure safety and avoid costly emission fees and enforcement actions. Valve stem seals need stress to be effective and valve live loading, the application of a spring load to the gland follower of a packed valve, is an effective measure to reduce the loss of packing stress.‚Äč
