The OASIS© 700 series valve design has a unique anti-blowout stem assembly enabling the valve to be used in very high-pressure gas applications. The valve body is fully machined out of billet stainless steel. The resulting unit is extremely strong and robust with an operating reliability an order of magnitude greater than forged or cast competitors. The valve is lighter and more compact than comparable units making it preferred in confined applications like compressor and dispenser units. The valve is a full-bore flow control device (the inside bore of the ball is the same as the connecting pipe work), which is a critical issue when handling compressed gas. Partial bore valves cannot handle the gas flow rates of the Oasis valve without freezing and becoming inoperable. The valve components are machined in very high spec CNC lathes and machining centres, the resulting surface finishes are free of blemishes and scouring. The close and consistent fits of the moving parts ensure low and even wear on the bearing parts. All wear parts are easily exchanged with Oasis provided service kits. The accuracy of Oasis manufacturing ensures all machined threads meet stringent gas operating standards. A combination of superior materials and complex design has resulted in a valve that does not distort even under four times working pressure. The trueness of the valve under working conditions enables the valve to seal correctly every on-off cycle. In multi-cycle trials the valve has out-performed competitors by a factor of ten.
