New Brass Ball Valve from Wabtec

Wednesday, April 01, 2009

Wabtec Corporation (NYSE:WAB) introduced two new lines of brass ball valve products to serve a variety of industrial markets, including Oil and Gas, LP Gas and Chemical Manufacturing.

For industrial markets, Wabtec now offers a robust valve that can withstand extreme temperature changes. The valve features a preloaded seat to extend valve life by keeping the ball seals pressed against the ball as the seals wear. These valves, which can also be refurbished with replacement kits, come in Full port, Conventional port, and UL Listed. They can be configured to fit custom applications.

In addition, Wabtec offers an economy brass ball valve line to complement the premium line. These valves, which are UL and CSA certified, are Teflon packing type valves and come with an adjustment nut to seal the stem packing as wear takes place.

All industrial valves are available in both vented and non-vented versions with optional locking handles.
