Monoflange and Keyblok valves are both types of primary isolation valves used to isolate the process media from a given location, often for safety or maintenance purposes. They are typically installed within an instrument hook up loop as the “take off valve” or the “first valve” off from the process flow line. This safely isolates instrumentation devices from the process media while still meeting piping class codes and standard valve requirements. TESCOM Anderson Greenwood Instrumentation Monoflange and Keyblok valves can be arranged for use in many applications including instrument isolation, gauge/pressure isolation, instrument drain, and chemical injection/ sampling.
