The Copes-Vulcan Model F100-40 Sampling Valve was developed to provide positive shutoff and reliable operation for both sampling and containment isolation applications in nuclear power plants.
Such high-pressure water, steam and gas applications demand exceptional seat tightness. The Copes-Vulcan design incorporates a high-thrust actuator with thru-hardened trim components to ensure better than ANSI B16.104 Class V leakage at 2500 psid (17,255 kPa).
The design is in accordance with ANSI B16.1, B16.5, B16.11, B16.25, B16.34. Copes-Vulcan also holds the following certifications that can be applied to the GS-Style Globe valve: ASME Section I, ASME Section III 'N' & 'NPT', 97/23/EC-PED-CE and is also ISO-9001 certified.
