SSP, a manufacturer of stainless steel and nickel-based alloy fluid system components, assemblies and CNG fueling applications announces the addition of its newest line of 40 Series Ball Valves to its FloLok brand line of valves. The first sizes available will be the FloLok 41, 42 and 43 series valves, with end connections from 0.0625-0.375”, as well as corresponding metric sizes. Larger 44 and 45 series valves will be available later this year.

The 40 series is a one-piece body-style ball valve which is a solution for analytical and process instrumentation, control systems and a variety of other applications. The one-piece body reduces the number of potential leak points compared to other valves, the manufacturer said. The one-piece design is a valve solution in analytical instrumentation and other medium-pressure applications that call for a quarter-turn shutoff. “The one piece packing eliminates dead space and leak points, while the blowout proof stem maximizes reliability and safety,” noted Reed Stith, Director of Marketing for SSP.

According to SSP, some of the enhancements that will drive reliability and service-ability for the 40 series ball valves are their strong forged body and blowout proof stems. In addition, the valves contain modified PTFE packing for excellent chemical compatibility and extended life over a wide range of temperatures (-65-300° F). One-piece packing tightly encapsulates the ball. Furthermore, the 40 series ball valves do not rely on system pressure to seal, thus sealing equally well at both high and low pressures. Finally, remote sensors can be mounted in handles to determine open/close position.
