SSP adds multipurpose ball valves to portfolio

SSP, a worldwide leader in instrumentation tube fittings, valves, and tubing, announces a new addition to its line of FloLok® instrumentation valves. The FB Series multipurpose ball valves can be used in a wide range of applications, but are specifically designed for use in demanding applications that many ball valves can’t handle, such as high pressure, high temperature and low differential pressure.
The FB Series of multipurpose ball valves features a floating ball design that allows upstream pressure to assist the downstream seal. Live loaded seats allow the valve to seal under differential pressures lower than other floating ball designs. Standard PEEK seats deliver leak-tight performance at 6000 psig.
A primary advantage with the FB Series is the fact that the downstream spring can cushion the shock of the ball against the seat, preventing damage over the long term. Additionally, the end-screw completely supports the seat at high pressure, protecting the nwear, leakage, and extends the performance life.
