Valve Live Loading Using
Solon® Belleville Springs
Industry sealing experts have determined that 60% of all fugitive emissions are caused by valve leaks, and estimated that 75% of those leaks are from the stem. Valve live loading, or the application of Belleville springs or flange washers to the gland follower of a packed valve is an effective way of reducing the loss of packing stress.
This paper will discuss how to determine if your valve application is a candidate for live loading, best practice suggestions for material selection and stacking arrangements, as well as a complimentary risk analysis which is used to make recommendations for a valve live loading stack.
