Internal Chemical Hydraulic Valve

Betts Internal Chemical Hydraulic Valve is classified as an internal self-closing stop valve and is widely used on DOT407 and 412 cargo tanks. The design of the internal valve shields the spring, valve seat, and hydraulic actuator safely within the confines of the cargo tank. The 316-stainless body with an optional Hastelloy® overlay seat and replaceable Teflon™ seal make this a versatile and proven valve that satisfies the many requirements of the chemical transportation industry.

This valve meets the requirements of 49CFR §178.345-8 as tested and verified per TTMA RP84 when it is properly mounted and used in conjunction with a certified 4×3 shear elbow or 4×4 shear elbow.

The flange has a 1/8” NPT inlet port for the hydraulics and phonographic finish on the faces to ensure proper gasket sealing.
