Crane’s FK-TrieX Exceeds Traditional TOV Cv Values

29 April 2021

The new FK-TrieX full port triple offset valve from Crane exceeds conventional TOV Cv values by a factor of 4x to 8x+. This new valve utilizes all of the geometrical advantages of a triple offset sealing element to achieve bi-directional zero leakage, and is certified to API 6D and API 598 specifications.  

The Crane FK-TrieX enables systems to realize upfront and long-term cost savings, by virtue of its high Cv value that allows for a reduction in line size throughout the system. The savings from smaller actuators, 20% lower structural support cost, and a reduced cost of planned maintenance of more than 50% all add up.
