Stainless steel compressor bleed valves

Compressor bleed valves are essential components in the startup of a gas turbine. They are also some of the common components to cause trips. It’s a problem that has plagued F-class plant operators (and GE) for many years. After more than a few attempts to solve the main problem causing trips—corrosion in the valve body—we are pleased to offer an alternative to carbon steel valves : Our latest and greatest stainless steel compressor bleed valve.
