1. GENERAL INFORMATION.WORKING PRINCIPLE


Floating Ball Valves are devices to stop the flow of the service fluid when necessary. The valves are floating ball,
fully welded body, split body and side entry design, and close by turning the handle 90 clockwise, with tightness
achieved by friction of the ball to the seats. When the handle is parallel to pipe the valve is open. They offer quick
operation and low pressure drop thanks to their full bore design or reduced bore design. They are not recommended
for regulating purpose.
2. The equipment is designed, manufactured and tested following procedures and high quality standards . They
conform to PED 97/23/CE and are CE marked when applicable.
The manual is designed to give the user complete information regarding installation, operation, adjustment,
perform periodic inspections and maintenance of valves type RSD.
READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE INSTALLING AND USING THE PRODUCT!
For any further information it is recommended to contact the manufacturer.
User's responsibility to know all the information presented in this manual and the specific application for which it was

4.ESSENTIAL SAFETY GUIDELINES


- Read this manual before installing the product.
- Always use the product within the scope of intended service and operating duties.
- Essential safety working regulations are to be strictly kept.
- Only qualified personnel should start up and regularly follow maintenance jobs at the plant.
- Any deviation from the usual installation guidelines should be notified to us for recommendation and approval.

5.PRESEVATION,STORAGE &TRANSPORTATION
- Keep storage protection. Always use right handling means and proper packing for transportation.
- Do not make use of handles, gears or actuators for valve weightlifting purpose.
- Keep the valves in full open (preferable) or full close position.
-Valves are primed coated by a paint layer against corrosion during transport and storage.
- In order to prevent surface damage and corrosion, avoid extreme temperatures, high environmental humidity or
corrosive environment. Keep the valves away from direct sunlight, dust, flames, flooding or rain to avoid damage and
rust of the valve surface. Protect against floor dampness by storage on a shell or on a wooden pallet.
- Avoid bumping or external vibrations, especially on the weak components, such as handles or gears. Do not pile up
excessive weight. In case of severe bumping inspect the material for any damage and replace if necessary.

6.INSTALLATION
Bear in mind the following guidelines along with general installation practice:
- Check the equipment design codes in relation with the applicable plant codes.
- Ensure that pressure design, temperature design, valve construction materials compatibility and other essential
parameters conform to the duty.
(Check operating limits on the Drawings, Data Sheets and valve marking)
- Consider the interaction between the system and the equipment. Foresee elements to absorb vibrations,
pipe dilatations, guides, anchoring and proper support according to the weight of the components.
-Allow enough space for maintenance operations.
- Installation position: The valves are bi-directional, uni-directional if is required. Otherwise, for some special
configuration, there is an arrow on the body pointing out the flow direction to be followed. Valve optimal position is
horizontal with stem pointing upwards. Valves can alternatively be installed in vertical pipelines. Try to avoid the stem
pointing downwards.
- Protect the valve soft parts from heating caused by welding works at the plant during commissioning.
- Protect the valves from dirt during installation and start-up works. Remove protective caps, remaining package, etc. if
any just before installation and check that the valve is clean of foreign particles.
- It is essential to flush the pipe system thoroughly to eliminate all the particles and impurities which could remain in the
pipes and particularly welding residue, chips, tool remains, etc. that could damage the equipment during start-up.
Ensure that during cleaning of the pipe system, any chemicals used and temperature are compatible with the valve
construction.
- It is recommended to install a proper sized mesh strainer upstream the valve in order to protect seating surfaces from
abrasion or erosion that could lead to seat leakage.
- Make sure that counter-flanges are compatible with the standard of the valve flanges. When matching up flanges,
avoid gradients, rotation and pipe misalignment that could cause pipe and valve stress and leakage once installed.
Flanges should fit smoothly. Select the proper flange face gaskets according to duty and centre them on the flange face
properly. Do not force the counter-flanges and do not try to tighten the bolts when a gap exists between valve and pipe
or if misalignment is observed. Tighten in a crosswise, moderate and uniform manner. During start-up tighten again if
leakage is noticed or replace gasket if necessary.
- Same as with preservation and storage do not use fragile parts such as handles to lift up or pull valves.
- Avoid water hammer or too high flow velocity. All steam systems in the plant should be designed to prevent condensate
depots which could lead to water hammers.
- Valves should be installed with ball in open position, making sure that the parts are perfectly aligned. Tighten bolts in an
uniform and crosswise manner. An eccentricity between parts makes the ball turn asymmetric and results in
irreversible damage of the seats by effect of the ball push at closing thus causing seat leakage.
- ACTUATOR: If the valve requires pneumatic, electric or hydraulic actuator, separate actuator lOM shall be also
followed.
- To avoid unnecessary stress and risk of valve break, weight of actuator should be properly supported in case
the valve stem is not pointing upwards.
2

- Make sure that the actuator is suitable for service particular requirements, valve adaptability, function needed,
adequate torque for the valve, need for limit switches, etc.
- Increasing working pressure and viscous or not liquid media implies higher operating torque. Contact our
Technical Department for advice.

7.START-UP
Please refer to the drawing from Annexes for reference of parts.
-Once the valve installed, make an initial opening and closure maneuvers to check its proper operability.
-Valve operation, filling, warming-up and starting-up shall be gradual so as to avoid any inadmissible stress. Check for
tightness in valve connections and body parts union, and retighten crosswise and gradually if necessary until leakage
elimination. Over tightening the body bolts will increase operating torque.

8.MAINTENANCE AND REGULAR CHECKING.


-Maintenance and corresponding intervals should be defined and scheduled by the plant operation personnel
according to service level.
-In the event of infrequent use, operate the valve as often as possible to avoid dirt deposits and valve blocking.
-Wait for the valve medium to cool down before starting any maintenance work, release the pressure from the system,
drain the line and pipe system in the event of toxic, corrosive, flammable or caustic fluids.
-Check the valve surface inside and outside. If advanced corrosion or erosion is observed double check service and
valve features and replace the valve properly.
-Check the valve seat surface and the flow passage as well as the stem packing.
-Valve can be easily disassembled by using common tools.
- Please refer to the drawing from Annexes for reference of parts.

9.SPARE PARTS
-Each valve shall be accompanied by a safety related parts, the method of
replacement and specific instructions for assembly and use-Annexes
-We strongly recommend using genuine spare parts.
-Type and number of each spare part to be stored according to service level and valves quantity. In some cases the
best choice is to keep complete valves as spare part.
-For particular valve specification and parts description and materials, please refer to the corresponding approved
order drawing.

10. HEALTH, SAFETY, ENVIRONMENT
