Flo-Tite’s Standard Part Numbers:
Flo-Tite’s Multi-Choice three piece Series Ball Valves with socket or butt weld connections offer an important advantage of integral extended end caps with heat sink rings that have a series of radiator-type grooves cast into the outside diameter. This creates increased surface area, allowing more heat to dissipate during welding, protecting the valve seat materials from damaging heat transfer. This unique design allows Flo-Tite’s three piece soft-seated valves to be welded into the piping system without disassembly and without special welding procedures. Flo-Tite’s special end cap design is supported with Super-Tek body seals and SuperTek TFM seats, which are provided standard in this high performance ball valve. Our unique design also minimizes potential installation errors, while providing a cost effective and safe installation for both manual and automated ball valves.
