Oliver Double Block & Bleed Valves
The Double Block & Bleed concept was pioneered by Oliver Valves in the early 1980’s and has since become a standard world wide.
Double Block & Bleed (DBB) valves are used in critical applications where cost, weight and space savings are paramount for pressure instrument take-off points. Each DBB has a unique serial number which records it’s factory history and provides traceability.

5 Benefits of Using the New Method to Achieve Double Block & Bleed
True Double Block & Bleed can be accomplished in different ways; while specific sets of operating criteria and unique piping arrangements may point to one method over another.
Here is a list of benefits you can expect to achieve while using a single-body, forged valve (with 2 separate isolates & 1 vent), versus the “traditional” Double Block & Bleed method, using multiple valves and piping.
