The KOP™ AM20 Gate Valve Series allow and shut-in flow for every operation of the wellhead,tree systemand choke and kill manifolds—from drilling and completion topumpingand production.The KOP™ AM20 Gate Valve Series offer unprecedented safety by ensuring a gas-tight seal from pressures as high as 10,000 psi to as low as 50 psi. An advanced coating guards against high wear,corrosion resistanceandlow friction factors for low operating torque.
The KOP™ AM20 Gate Valve Series also meets stringent requirements and is qualified for API 6A Annex PR2F, API 6FA fire test, API 6AV1 sand slurry test, extendedlow gas pressurehold test, endurance cycle test and sea water corrosion test. The actuatedKOPAM20Seriessurface safety valves are qualified to Annex F PR2F, API 6FA and API6AV1Class II.
The KOP™ AM20 Gate Valve Series features a simplified design thatisnot onlysmaller and lighter for greater cost savingsbut also provides part interchangeabilityto simplifyinventory requirements. The KOP™ AM20 Gate Valve Series withstands harsh conditions for more than 600 endurance cycles—representing a 60-year lifespan—without grease injection.The KOP™ AM20 Gate Valve Series increases the maintenance period by 50 percent as compared to any other gate valves in the market. This will reduce valve maintenance costby at least 50%.
