One-piece ball valves from Boiswood offer high reliability
13 January 2014
A new range of ball valves introduced by Boiswood have a one-piece forged body which reduces the number of potential leak points compared with other valve designs.
The 40 Series ball valves are a new addition to the FloLok range from US manufacturer SSP, and are ideal for control systems, analytical sampling, process measurement and other high cycle, medium pressure applications.
Encapsulated one-piece packing ensures leak-tight operation and provides positive shutoff in high, low and dynamic pressure applications. This packing also virtually eliminates dead space to reduce purging time and improve system cleanliness.
The valves are available in two-way, three-way and angle patterns and feature an innovative packing retainer that prevents the stem from blowing out when making inline packing adjustments in a pressurised system.
Reliability is further enhanced by their extremely strong forged body. Modified PTFE packing ensures broad chemical resistance and extended life over a wide temperature range from -55degC to +150degC.
The first sizes available are the FloLok 41, 42 and 43 Series which have end connections from 1/16" to 3/8", with corresponding metric sizes. The larger 44 and 45 Series will be available later in the year. Body materials are 316 stainless steel and brass and the pressure range covers vacuum to 3000 psig.
Remote sensors can be mounted in the handles to indicate the open or closed position.
