Zwick logo
Zwick is a leading manufacturer of metal-seated triple offset butterfly valves known as series TRI-CON, the check valves, called TRI-CHECK and the TRI-BLOCK series, Zwick’s Double Block and Bleed Design.

30 years experience in design and production of valves guarantee high standard products. ZWICK valves are produced state-of-the-art. The triple offset butterfly valves are specially designed for critical services where they are used as shut off and control valves. The in-house design enables offering customized solutions for individual applications like the global Industries of Oil and Gas, Chemical, Petrochemical, Energy, Offshore and Steel. TRI-CON valves incorporate a third offset design with a true cone-in-cone seating and a reliable zero-leakage performance and allow bi-directional tightness.

The number of technical attributes of the product, as the cone-in-cone seating design with the multiple laminations and the metal seat makes the series TRI-CON to an allrounder for many different industrial applications. Zwick valves are used for industrial and exhaust gases, liquids, hot water or steam at lowest as well at high temperature zones up to 815°C.


The check valve TRI-CHECK combines all the benefits of the Series TRI-CON in a non-return valve. Triple-offset design with a wide seat angle and a true cone in cone, no rubbing while moving and absolute zero leakage performance. The TRI-CHECK is equipped with a hydraulic damper and a counter weight. The damper can be adjusted to the actual installation conditions in which the valve will be used.


The Double Block and Bleed design features every technical advantage which the series TRI-CON has plus there is a true double block and bleed feature which delivers zero leakage. By using this design, the former two valve system with a spool piece becomes obsolete. With Zwick’s design of the linkage between the two shafts, the user is able to actuate both shafts with only one actuator and reach zero leakage with the two available sealing surfaces.


TRI-SHARK control valves provide all the latest in control valve innovation, technology and valve acoustics. Our control valves are created that exhibit significant improvements in performance, simplicity, and economy. TRI-SHARK control valves have excellent throttling characteristics and provide aerodynamic noise attenuation, and liquid cavitation reductions. They are suitable for a wide range of services from cryogenic temperatures, up to 850°F, including liquids, gases and steam.

As the butterfly vane turns within the Throttling Trim Cartridge, the flow is first controlled via the characterized clearance between the disc edge and the solid, tapered portion of the Cartridge; then through the multiple, optimized slots; and finally, through the additional open area of the valve.
