FPS® Valves

Reliable, cost-effective, high-performance shut-off valve technology

FPS® 9650 Valves

FPS 9650 Shut Off Valves Babcock & Wilcox

We are leaders in reliable, cost-effective, high-performance shut-off valve technology. Our automatic and manual shut-off valves are installed around the world in pulp and paper, petrochemical and power generation applications. FPS® valves provide low maintenance, leak proof and fail-safe operation.

The FPS 9650 Valve Series was developed to meet our ongoing requirement for high-performance safety shut-off ball valves for burner and ignitor systems. When developing the valve line, our main criteria was to create a superior quality valve package that would exceed the requirements of CSA and FM valve performance standards. FPS 9650 valves are available in both manual and automatic construction in a Series 88 and Series 90D valve body.

Automated 9650 Valves

Automated 9650 valves are electro-pneumatic and fitted with FPS actuators, FPS limit switches and ASCOTM solenoids. FPS actuators are spring return which provides fail-open or fail-closed security upon loss of instrument air or power. FPS limit switches are available in a water-tight (IP67) or explosion proof (Class 1, Div1) enclosure rating. A range of ASCO solenoid options are common supply and include a variety of VAC or VDC operating voltages, enclosure ratings, intrinsically safe options, and more.

FPS 88 Series Valves

The FPS 88 series valves feature a three-piece body with a bi-directional sealing design. This design allows for ease of inline maintenance without breaking the piping connection and is available with NPT, socket weld or butt weld ends, in sizes 1/4 in. up to 2 in. A variety of seat material options are available to suit process conditions and media.

FPS 90D Series Valves

FPS 90D series valves feature a two-piece body with a bi-directional sealing design.   90D series valves are available with 150# or 300# AMSE RF flanges, in sizes 1/2 in. up to 6 in.  A variety of seat material options are available to suit process conditions and media.
