The Hobbs triple offset butterfly is available as a double flanged body pattern which can be supplied with drilled and tapped holes or through drilled holes to suit specific site standards. Due to the torque seating we would normally supply a manual override gearbox for size 4” and above which would allow 5° over travel to guarantee tight shut off. The double flanged bodies are available in long and short pattern with the long pattern valve being suitable for a gate valve face to face. Hobbs can also manufacture to bespoke dimensions longer than standard should this be required.

Although triple offset butterfly valves have been available for a number of years very few can compete with the certain patented design features of the Hobbs range of bubble-tight shut off triple offset butterfly valves.
The main design feature was the introduction into the valve of the disc bolted around a square shaft eliminating the need for pins or keys to maintain the integrity of the disc / stem arrangement. When constructed having the seat located within the valve body rather than on the valve disc Hobbs are able to offer bi-directional operational sealing.
The Hobbs valve is fast becoming the first valve to select due to the reliability and quality of the finished valve product. Impressive cost savings can be made when considering the Hobbs triple offset valve when comparing to larger diameter ball valves are gate valves.
The valve is also now being used on steam applications due to the metal seat arrangement and by providing positive bubble-tight isolation.
