HARTMANN Scraper valve type HM

Hartmann pigging ball valves type HM combine the advantages of the Hartmann type AST and typical functions such as shut off valves for pigging insertion or removal valves. The simple, secure, and fast insertion and removal of pigs is done through an interlock that is integrated on the side of the pigging ball valve and that is locked and secured through a bayonet system.

Pigging ball valve can not only be in the cleaning version (HMR type), cleaning version but also with a bypass where in closed position, for applications where flow of medium cannot be interrupted (HMB type) pigging insertion or removal valves to split the various products in the pipeline (HMS type).

In the standard version, the Hartmann pigging insertion or removal valves are designed for a maximum pig length of 1.4 x nominal pipe diameter. On request, Hartmann can offer you special constructions for spherical pigs or cylindrical pigs longer than 1.1 to 1.4 x diameter up to 2.0 x diameter.

Simple handling of Hartmann pigging ball type HM is one of the paramount advantages of these valves: For the insertion or removal of the pig the ball is rotated by 90°, which means it is rotated into the closed position. Prior to the opening of the interlock, the housing interior is depressurized via a release valve, then the bayonet catch is unlocked and opened with a left turn. The pig can now be inserted or removed through the interlock.

The advantages of Hartmann ball valves are mainly: simpler handling, safe overdrive, compact dimensions and lower investment costs compared to traditional pigging interlocks.
