Ball valves are durable, performing well after many cycles, and reliable, closing securely even after long periods of disuse. These qualities make them an excellent choice for shutoff and control applications, where they are often preferred to gates and globe valves, but they lack their fine control in throttling applications.
Long life and safe operation in tough services, from cryogens to highly corrosive fluids — these are the hallmarks of our comprehensive and respected ball valve portfolio. Maximum safety and environmental protection are the driving factors in every design, achieved through corrosion-resistant materials, fire-safe testing, blowout-proof stems and tight shut-off features. Global customers can fulfill requirements from dozens of configurations built to a full range of international design and performance standards.
