Stainless Steel Ball Valve
Ball valve made of stainless steel, are used as intercepting valves in Stainless Steel lines, usually in the Oil and Gas, Water, Chemical, Dairy, Wine, Brewing or Pharmaceutical Industries. Stainless Steel is commonly used wherever sanitary measures are required. For manual operating, the valves are supplied with a standard handle called a locking handle, which places the valves either open or closed.

BSP 1 Piece Reduced Bore Ball Valve
A one piece ball valve has a body and end connections formed from a single piece of material. This construction presents a comparatively reduced number of opportunities for leakage. The valve trim and seals are inserted through one of the end connections. This type of valve will not have a port size equal to the line size. The simplicity of the one piece body design tends to make their cost lower than the other versions. Once the valve is in place, it cannot be serviced without removing the entire valve assembly from the piping system. One piece ball valves are inexpensive and generally not repaired.
We stock from 1/4" to 2" in these valves. Working pressure in 63bar (914psi) with a temperature range of -20°C to +200°C
BSP 2 Piece Ball Valve
Two piece ball valves consist of two separate pieces, with the connection between them being a threaded assembly. They generally have the main section includes an end connection and the body, plus a second connection (end cap) that fits into the first that will hold the trim in place and provide the second piece. The construction presents an additional leak potential where the two pieces are joined, but also allows disassembly of the valve for replacement of the internals (although not often practised due to relatively competitive price on these valves). These valves can provide full port service and bidirectional flow shutoff.
