Double Block and Bleed Valve: Special Type of Valve

Double block and bleed valves are also known as DBB valves. This valve is a space-saving dual isolation solution that reduces the need for costly multi-valve systems. By combining all block and bleed components into a single unit, DBB valves minimize the risk of leak paths to atmosphere while providing significant weight savings. In many DBB valves, the isolation valve ...
