Class 800 valves are designed to handle a maximum pressure of 800 pounds per square inch (psi). This rating indicates their ability to withstand higher-pressure conditions compared to valves with lower pressure ratings, such as Class 150 or Class 300.Class 800 valves come in various types, including forged steel gate valve class 800, forged steel globe valve class 800 etc.
Class 800 valves are typically employed in industries where processes involve high-pressure systems. They are commonly found in sectors such as oil and gas, petrochemical, power generation, refining, and chemical industries. These valves are used in pipelines, equipment, and systems that handle fluids or gases under elevated pressure levels.
Class 800 valves are constructed with materials and components that can withstand the higher pressures. They are often made from robust materials such as stainless steel, alloy steel, or other high-performance alloys that provide enhanced strength and corrosion resistance. The valve design may also incorporate features like reinforced bodies, thicker walls, and special seals to ensure reliability under high-pressure conditions.
