The Cameron TBV Series 9900  fire-tested, top-entry ball valve complements our portfolio of split-body and end-entry valve products. The TBV series 9900 ball valve is designed specifically for users who prefer welded connections and who do not want to tamper with the valve body integrity during repair or installation, or those concerned with possible flange connection leak paths during operation.


Fire Testing

Any hydrocarbon leak (e.g., diesel, LNG, etc.) that can find an ignition source can cause a fire. As a valve manufacturer, it is our duty to keep the pressure inside a valve to help safe-guard the general public, personnel, and the environment. Fire testing helps achieve this by verifying that a valve will perform in case of a catastrophic event such as a fire. The TBV series 9900 ball valve is fire-tested in accordance with API 607, 6th ed. standards.

This testing makes the TBV series 9900 ball valve ideal for a variety of applications, including:

  • Gas processing plants (LNG)
  • Petrochemical plants
  • Refineries
  • Aerospace and fuel loading
  • Production, transport, and storage of liquefied industrial gases
