Double block & bleed valves redefined

Made In Germany

The Taurus Series is designed, developed and tested in Germany and certified by TÜV Süd. The assembly is done exclusively in Germany.

High-quality raw materials 

  • Raw materials for pressure containing parts are sourced from Europe or North America only

High-quality materials for maximum performance

  • Where necessary, PEEK as seat material and duplex as ball material are provided
  • Stems are generally made in XM-19, an austenitic stainless steel grade, which has a greater corrosion resistance and higher yield strength than 316 stainless steel
  • All other trim materials and all non-wetted parts are provided in 316 stainless steel. Therefore the use in corrosive or salty environment is feasible
  • For valves in special alloys all wetted parts are made in the special alloy material

State-Of-The-Art Valves

Taurus are state-of the-art valves and developed and reengineered using the latest design and simulating methods paired with decades of experience.

All Taurus types meet the following requirements by default:

  • Fire safe tested and certified acc. to API 607 and ISO 10497
  • Tested and certified for fugitive emissions acc. to
    ISO 15848-1
  • Nace MR0175 and ISO 15156
  • Pressure equipment directive (PED)
  • API 6D / ISO 14313
  • ASME B16.34

Full bore

  • We offer a ‘real’ full bore valve according to API 6D / ISO 14313
  • Some manufacturers fall below these minimum dimensions and offer it anyway as “full bore”, although the bore size diameter do not meet the minimum requirements

Short face-to-face length

  • These valves meet the face-to-face requirements of ASME B16.10 (where feasible) and can therefore replace an existing ball valve or double block & bleed valve. This short and compact design results in less space requirements and less weight
