with minimum cooling and exchangeable cooling rings

Hot Blast Valves

Design Features Of Hot Blast Valves

  • Minimized heat loss due to optimized isolation of body and bonnet.
  • Special design cooling water passages provide optimum flow.
  • Sealing in both direction, floating paddle design.
  • Valve actuation in accordance with customers´requirements (man./ electr. / hydr. / pneum.)
  • Pressure rating up to 6 bar.
  • Service temperatures up to 1550°C
  • Nominal sizes up to 3000mm (120 inch).


  • Customized prefabricated cooling water rings can be ordered in advance of the planned refurbishment.
  • All strength and leakage tests can be executed inadvance.
  • Manufacturing time for refurbishment can be reduced to a minimum.

This Design Guarantees

  • Considerable reduction of required quantity of cooling water
  • Extended operational life of the valve due to thermal insulation which reduce the thermal insulation which reduce the thermal stresses to the valve.
  • Less deposits in cooling water channels, by decreasing the area cross section of the channel and increasing the speed.
  • Improved maintenance due to optimized valve design and exchangeable body seats.
  • Reduced operating costs due to decreased heat loss and reduction in amount of cooling water.
