BuTech ball valves are available in 2-, 3-, 4-, and 5-way designs with an infinite combination of connections including male and female NPT, low-pressure compression fittings medium- and high-pressure tube ends, medium and high-pressure female, JIC 37° flare, SAE O-ring boss, socket-weld, butt-weld, and metric connections. They are available with special seal materials or manufactured from any machineable metal for extreme applications. They can also be fitted with pneumatic or electric actuators for remote control. Also available for Subsea service, meeting API-6A specifications.
2-way Floating Ball Valves for On-Off Service should be limited to non-critical applications. It is important that these valves always have an inlet pressure of at least 1,000 psig to properly load seals, if the pressure will sometimes drop below 1,000 psig, the valve may leak across the ball. It should not be used for gas applications.
