The M Series line of ball valves

Nov 16, 2012

Cimberio Valve, Malvern, Pa., offers the cimPUSH line of push-to-connect ball valves. The valves connect to PEX, CPVC and copper pipes in any combination without tools, glue or solder.

The M Series line of ball valves comprises four configurations for steam and other industrial fluids. The valves features a blow-out proof stem, a modular seat/seal assembly for smooth operation at high pressures, a integrated seat and body gasket, and a floating ball for tight shutoff under ANSI Class VI.

Designed for a range of applications handling water, air, food products, gases, petroleum products or aggressive chemicals, these ball valves are made in sizes from 3/8- to 6-in., and are available with pneumatic actuators, electric motor operators, or manual control with levers and hand wheel gearboxes. Both 2- and 3-way models are made with operating pressures from 0 to 3000 psig.

High Pressure Equipment Co. (HIP) has introduced a 0.5 in. orifice size line of trunion-style ball valves designed specifically for severe-duty applications. Available in two-way and three-way configurations, the 0.5 in. valve has a pressure rating of 10,000 psi and offers the same features as HiP's 0.187 and 0.375 in. trunion ball valves. All three sizes connect to a wide range of tube sizes and have 316 stainless-steel constructions. With the trunion-style closure, these valves are used for liquid shut-off or gas flow in severe duty applications.

Recent steps in ball valve technology may be attributed, in part, to advances in material technology, particularly for valve seats and O-rings. Anyone selecting a ball valve should carefully match the valve's operating conditions to the appropriate seat material

 Rated for full vacuum service, this cross port ball valve's 3-way design permits multiple flow patterns because of the crossed flow corridors within the ball. It is available in sizes of 1/2- to 2-in., and is manufactured from PVC, CPVC, PP or PVDF, making it well-suited for handling highly corrosive liquids in a variety of industries.www.hydraulic-saivs.com

Its design achieves four flow patterns through three ports using one valve, which permits flow from common port to left or right ports to "off" position. To accomplish this in past would would have required two different valve body styles and two different ball configurations. Available with electric or pneumatic actuators, the valve has "L" port as standard and Tee Double L porting optional. Asahi/America Inc, Maiden, MA.
