The maintenance-free nickel-plated brass ball valve VAPB is used for both simple applications and more demanding ones, such as steam. The addition of nickel increases corrosion resistance.
As a 2/2-way version with ISO 5211 head flange, the VAPB can be easily and safely automated with the DAPS or DFPD quarter turn actuators. The low breakaway torques allow the use of a compact quarter turn actuator. Manual use is also possible by attaching a hand lever from the VAOH family.
The standard plastic ball valve VZBG is suitable for many applications, from simple shut-off valves to fully automated fittings – even in highly demanding processes. With the 2/2-way ball valve, Festo has an innovative product in its range to cover various applications in the plastics industry. Type 546 is modular, flexible and offers a high degree of quality. With the different materials and connectors, almost all plastic joining techniques can be used. The ball offers a linear adjustable characteristic or the standard flow characteristic with a full passage of the nominal width of the pipe. The ISO 5211 interface makes the ball valve perfect for automation using quarter turn actuators.
For use in pipelines with flanged ends, the flanged ball valve VZBC in compact design with its shorter installation length offers an alternative to conventional flanged ball valves. Due to its smaller size, it requires less space when installed in the pipeline. In addition, the lower material input allows a weight reduction.
Pre-assembled with the pneumatic quarter turn actuator DAPS, the VZBC ball valve actuator unit offers an optimal solution for the automation of ball valves.
The stainless steel ball valve in 2/2-way and 3/2-way versions is used in numerous applications in process and factory automation. The three-piece 2/2-way ball valve enables easy maintenance, even with end pieces welded into the pipeline. The 3/2-way ball valve with L and T-bore of the ball is suitable for switching two media circuits as well as for mixing two media.
The stainless steel ball valves are installed in pipelines and can be operated by hand lever or automated with a pneumatic quarter turn actuator thanks to the ISO 5211 head flange. The VZBA ball valve actuator units are pre-assembled with both double-acting and single-acting DAPS quarter-turn actuators and guarantee optimum and safe switching, even under difficult conditions.
The pre-assembled ball valve actuator unit VZPR with the VAPB brass ball valve offers a simple and safe solution for automating ball valves with ISO 5211 head flange with a pneumatic quarter turn actuator.
The VZPR ball valve actuator unit is the optimum combination of the nickel-plated VAPB brass ball valve with low torques and the double-acting pneumatic quarter turn actuator DAPS.
The stainless steel ball valves VZBE with threaded connections according to ANSI B.1.20.1 are used wherever the international pipe connection NPT is used. The 2/2-way and 3/2-way versions with ISO 5211 head flanges enable quick, easy and safe automation with pneumatic quarter turn actuators. The 3/2-way version also enables the control and switching of two media circuits or even the mixing of two media. Due to the lockable hand levers of the VAOH family for VZBE, the ball valves can also be operated manually.
The manual 2/2-way ball valve without ISO 5211 head flange completes the VZBE family with NPT connections.
The stainless steel ball valve VZBF with flange connections according to ANSI B.16.5 class 150 and overall length ANSI B.16.10 is ideal for use in more demanding applications. The 2/2-way ball valve with its Fire-Safe design guarantees increased safety. The anti-static control shaft also allows use in potentially hazardous environments.
The two-piece ball valve VZBF in "split-body" design is easy to service.
Thanks to the ISO 5211 mounting flange, the VZBF can be automated easily and directly. If required, a DARQ mounting kit can also be installed between quarter turn actuator and ball valve.
The VZBD stainless steel ball valves are perfectly suited for use in the pharmaceuticals and cosmetics industries as they combine all of the required characteristics for these demanding applications. For parts that come into contact with the product, the standard design uses elastomers that are approved by the FDA and USP. To reduce the dead space behind the valve, the ball of the VZBD is sheathed in two PTFE half shells known as cavity fillers. This prevents medium from entering the cavity (dead space) between the ball and housing, thus preventing cross-contamination of media when they change within a process. Another special characteristic of the VZBD ball valve is that there is no size reduction between the connection ends and the ball, which is also termed "full bore".
The nickel-plated brass ball valves of the VZBM series are used both in process automation and in industrial automation. In addition to the 3/2-way ball valve with L and T-bore, the 2/2-way ball valve with ISO 5211 head flange is part of the automated version of the VZBM. Without ISO 5211 head flange, the 2/2-way ball valve is a manual and universally applicable ball valve. This is characterized by its lightweight design and DVGW gas and water approval.
The brass ball valve QH is an all-rounder. Due to its three-piece design, the QH is a heavy-duty version of a nickel-plated brass ball valve. As a 2/2-way ball valve with manual actuation and threads according to ISO 228, it is often used in industrial automation.
