Established in 1989, Specialty & Ball Valve Engineering, Inc. continues the 30 year old tradition of the Dynaflow ball valve line. We have evolved into a network of fluids and technical specialists. In addition to our in- house experts, SBVE calls upon individuals with expertise in such diverse areas as acoustics and mechanisms, thermal and stress analysis, software development, materials research, machining, test, and inspection.
Quality ISO 9001:2008
Since July 1997, the SBVE quality system has been certified to ISO 9001 standards and we currently operate in accordance with ISO 9001: 2008. Products used on submarines and deep submersibles exceed these requirements and are often procured to meet Navy Level I/Subsafe standards.
Our valves are produced to some of the most exacting quality standards in the industry. In addition to the Dynaflow manual valve line, SBVE can supply a variety of pneumatic, electro-mechanical, electro-magnetic or hydraulic actuators. Because our valves are designed with low friction trunnion bearings, actuator torque requirements are quite low. This helps reduce size, weight and cost of actuated valves. Example, the half inch bore valve with 5000 psi line pressure requires a breakout torque of only 85 INCH-pounds. This is with Navy seat materials used for over 30 years. By substituting more modern materials, we can reduce breakout torque further.
Working closely with your engineers we will continue to expand the applications of our custom valves. Specialty & Ball Valve Engineering is developing new applications for Dynaflow valves and building partnerships to develop new elastomers and actuators for even more capable products in the 21st century.
Proud Applications - Past and Present
Deep submersibles Rescue vehicles Research
(Turtle, Sea Cliff, USS Dolphin-world's deepest diving submarine) (Mystic and Avalon) (Navy labs, NEDU diver development facility, NASA test facilities, high altitude aircraft)
Other Fluid Products
SBVE specializes in high pressure fluid applications - those over 3000 psi. In addition to ball valves, SBVE can provide custom component designs for fluid components not offered by other manufacturers. Call us and we'll make it your way.
