Galvin Engineering presents a new range of Watermark approved 3-piece stainless steel ball valves for all potable water applications.

The new isolation valves are especially suitable for use in piping systems where line breaks are required and total entry into the line is necessary.

Stainless steel ball valves are widely used within chemical processing, food, marine, mining and general industries, and are also being extensively specified in hospitals to provide solutions to whole of life challenges.

The 3-piece ball valves find use in aged care facilities, correctional facilities, high rise apartments, harsh environments, hospitals, marine environments, mining sites, schools and shopping centres among others.  

The 3-piece drop out design allows easy servicing of the valve while also eliminating the need to cut a valve out of line that may result in replacement of both the valve and the pipe.  

The 3-piece construction enables end connections to be permanently fitted to the pipe system, allowing the valve body to be removed for replacement of seals without disturbing the pipe work.  

The stainless steel construction offers greater resistance than brass, allowing the valves to maintain greater pressure resistance at higher temperatures.

Key features of 3-piece stainless steel ball valves:    

  • Stainless steel construction with 3-piece design 
  • Suits potable water applications 
  • Allows greater corrosion resistance than conventional brass ball valves 
  • Widely used within chemical processing, food, marine, mining and general industries 
  • 3-piece construction allows seal replacement without disturbing the pipe work
