ZERO-LEAKAGE.* ALWAYS.

The number of unique technical attributes of the product, as the cone-in-cone seating design with the multiple laminations and the metal seat makes the series TRI-CON to an allrounder for many different industrial applications.

Zwick valves are used for industrial and exhaust gases, liquids, hot water or steam at lowest as well at high temperature zones up to 815°C. The TRI-CON is utilized extensively in the chemical, petro-chemical, oil & gas, offshore and district heating markets.

LARGE, REALLY LARGE.

ZWICK loves big challenges. And big means big. Valves can be manufactured in maximum dimensions of over 200 cm in diameter.

MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE, DAY TO DAY

The series TRI-CON contains nominal sizes from 2” to 88”and pressure classes from ANSI 150 lbs to 1500 lbs.

The complete range of standard body styles like lug type,double flange, and gate valves face to face dimensions are available in various raw materials.

Triple Offset Metal-Seated State-of-the-Art

The triple offset geometry and the special features guarantee 100% zero-leakage performance even during extreme temperature variation and pressure peaks.

TRI-CON valves offer the widest laminated seal ring in the market today, made possible by true cone-in-cone seating design which assures a frictionless opening and closing with lowest torques and without break-away torque. Zwick’s design provides 100% tightness in gas services.

Zwick valves are used for critical services in many global industries for liquids and gases. The triple offset valves are designed for temperatures up to 815°C and for cryogenic services.

THE SELF-CENTERING DISC

The construction guarantees the optimal position of the laminated seal against the seat. Jamming due to thermal expansion is eliminated.

TORQUE TRANSMISSION USING KEYS

The disc is keyed to the shaft not pinned, providing balanced torque transmission and eliminating the danger of pins shearing off.

IDEAL LAMINATION AND DISC DESIGN

The strong disc with its eliptical supporting surface offers the best fixing of the lamination. Bubble tightness is given as a result of the special machining of the lamination.

SUPPORTING BEARING BUSHINGS

The optimal position of the bearing reduces the risk of the shaft bending. This guarantees bi-directional tightness at maximum differental pressure.
