Description

High Pressure Instrument Ball Valves offer reliable 1/4-turn shutoff for pressures up to 6,000 Psig (413 bar). These valves feature a Micro-Finished Floating Ball design to provide a positive seal in both directions. Series IBV Instrument Ball Valves also feature a “straight-through” flow path to ensure high flows with minimum pressure drop. The valves are designed to operate with a low operation torque while providing a long service life. All valve configurations can be panel mounted.
