Control Your Process with a Proven Valve Design


The Trimteck-Optimux OpTB Trunnion Mounted Ball Control Valve brings the reliability of a robust on/off valve design to throttling applications. With several options for modification of the ball, including V-Notch and OS2T Noise Abatement, the OpTB can safely and efficiently tackle difficult flow control applications in Oil & Gas, Mining, and Power Generation. Often the OpTB serves double-duty as a throttling valve and an ESD ‘Slam Valve’, as pictured in this natural gas treating plant in South Texas.
