AMERICAN VALVE4000 Series Ball Valves
AMERICAN VALVE 4000 Series Ball Valves
The AMERICAN VALVE 4000 Series Ball Valves are industrial ball valves featuring a Tefllon® fused ball. This makes the ball valve more durable and less susceptible to accumulating buildup. It last longer than an ordinary unprotected ball which adds to a long list of advantages over other types of valves.
Dupont developed a process to impregnate Teflon® .008″ into a solid metal ball. An additional .004″ is added electrostatically for smoothness. Since the Teflon® becomes part of the metal, it can’t flake, chip, or peel off.
The corrosion and chemical resistance of Teflon® has been recognized around the world. With the introduction of this valve we present an affordable (same price as most gate valves) ball valve that will outlast any unprotected metal valve in any application.
The lubricity of our Teflon® ball allows for lower torque ratings in any application, making it easier to turn and require a smaller, less expensive actuator.
We offer a complete line of actuators, gear operators and operating nuts for the 4000 series. Our unique Teflon® fused ball and lower operating torques make the 4000 series an effective alternative to cast iron gates, carbon steel ball valves and plug valves. The four-bolt actuator mounting pad is ideal for applications requiring automation.
American Valve offers a complete package of pneumatic, hydraulic and electric ac tu a tors, gear operators and operating nuts for the 4000 series. Our unique, patented Teflon® fused ball and lower operating torques make the 4000 series an ef fec tive alternative to cast iron gates, carbon steel ball valves and plug valves. Our in-house automation program provides a fast, cost-effective, and turn-key solution for your automation needs.
