Industrial Ball Valves

OVERVIEW:  Ball Valves are a form of quarter-turn valve that uses a pivoting ball to control flow through it. They are durable and reliable, closing securely even after long periods of disuse. These qualities make them an excellent choice for shutoff and control applications.  

The ball valve's ease of operation and versatility lend it to extensive industrial use. Valve bodies are typically carbon steel, stainless steel, or brass, as well as PVC or CPVC. There are a variety of body styles, including easily repairable 3-piece and maintenance free 1-piece designs. Optional features include full bores, fire safe, anti-static, API 608 and other qualifications. See the Construction & Features table for each valve below for a summary.

They are also available with actuators for control applications, which are also shown here.
