Ball Valves

Our ball valves are available in a variety of standard materials and end connections. In addition, Swagelok® offers ball valves manufactured or configured to the special needs of your applications.

Ball valves:

  • Can be used in a wide range of applications, from general purpose to critical-service applications
  • Keep system media where it belongs, control fugitive emissions and leakage
  • Are offered in high flow and quick-quarter turn manual or pneumatic actuation
  • Have been engineered for repeatable, leak-tight shutoff
  • Have low overall cost of ownership
  • Can be manufactured or configured to a wide range of specifications

One-Piece Instrumentation Ball Valve (40G and 40 Series)

The 40 series one-piece instrumentation ball valve has performed reliably for nearly 40 years in multiple industries. Swagelok modified the valve construction and developed an innovative assembly process. The result is the 40G series ball valve, which features an expanded operating temperature rating, improved thermal cycling capabilities, and reduced potential for leaks.

Using a patent-pending seal design, the 40G series ball valve resists packing deformation, or “cold-flow,” for increased thermal performance and improved leak resistance.
