GD Redline valves and seats are industry leaders, designed for maximum performance and reliability, with the full-open, bonded design providing optimal flow efficiency and maximum sealing. In line with GD’s commitment to continuous innovation, the V3 valve has undergone a complete redesign to improve metallurgy and heat treatment resulting in enhanced wear resistance and strength.
