Phönix

Phönix has been supplying a complete range of high-quality, high-performance engineered, solution specific valves to handle the most demanding and extreme conditions in severe applications since 1910. “Phönix valves” have become synonymous for bellows sealed globe valves and have been used worldwide for over 60 years for critical media. Phönix supplies their globe, gate, and swing check valves in ASME Section III, Class 1, 2, and 3 N-stamp. Phönix’s product line is available in sizes ¼" to 40" ANSI Class 150 to 4500.

Phönix considers itself as a specialist in manufacturing bellows sealed globe valves for a safe handling of dangerous, highly toxic, flammable and expensive media. The solution of a stem sealing system with bellows to the ambient is visible throughout the nearly entire program and Phönix can be defined as the market leader referring to various solutions of construction and the application range concerning operational parameters.
