Overview

Cameron TBV valves includes the Series 9900 fire-tested, top-entry ball valve, which complements our portfolio of split-body and end-entry valve products. It is designed specifically for users who prefer welded connections and who do not want to tamper with the valve body integrity during repair or installation, or those concerned with possible flange connection leak paths during operation.

Fire testing verifies that a valve will perform in the case of a catastrophic event such as a fire. The Series 9900 ball valve is fire tested in accordance with API 607 6th Ed. standards. This testing makes the Series 9900 ball valve ideal for a variety of applications, including

  • gas processing plants (LNG)
  • petrochemical plants
  • refineries
  • aerospace and fuel loading
  • production, transport, and storage of liquefied industrial gases.
