Henry Pratt Company’s criteria of quality, reliability, safety, and value are embodied in the Ballcentric® Plug Valve setting higher standards for dependable performance with excellent features achieved by the utilization of the very latest design and manufacturing techniques. Computer Aided Design High Integrity Casting CNC manufacturing delivers consistent sizes on all components All complemented by a rigorous Quality Control System.
Plug Valve BALLCENTRIC Body:
The Ballcentric® Plug Valve body casting is ASTM A536 65-45-12 ductile iron using high-pressure molding techniques. The threaded connection is available in 1/2″-2″ sizes. Flanged connection is available in 2″ size. Flange diameter, thickness, and drilling conform to ANSI B16.1 Class 125.
Plug Valve BALLCENTRIC Seat:
The valve seat shall be furnished with an overlay of corrosion and abrasion-resistant epoxy.
Plug Valve BALLCENTRIC Plug:
Supported by integral trunnions, the plug is totally encapsulated with an elastomer that is molded to the casting providing tight shut-off even under vacuum conditions. High-integrity corrosion-free sealing is achieved by a variety of abrasion-resistant elastomers that protect the plug right up to the trunnions. When assembled, the light compression of the elastomers onto PTFE thrust washers prevents the entry of abrasive materials into the bearings.
