Cast Iron valves are no different. Since the performance of iron valves depends greatly on the quality of the castings, molten
Ball Valves are designed with extensive safety considerations. Vented-ball, blow-out-proof stem and prevention of lever misalignment are all standard features that contribute to safe handling and trouble free operation. Lever operation is standard on most of our ball valves; however; Oval Handles, Locking Ovals, Wing Handles, Extended Stems, or Insulated Stem Extensions can be provided. Grounding Devices and Memory Stops are also available. Lower operating torques and smooth operation are benefits of the quality designed into every ball valve. Bronze and Brass valves are Full Port as standard, with the exception of our Code No. 51 and the 3-Way Ball valves. Third-party approvals from CSA, UL and FM are available on a number of the commercial and plumbing ball valves.
