Stainless steel ball valves from DMIC are available in a flexible size range. Its stainless steel ball valves in the BVH, BVAH, and BVHS series have had recent product improvements to its stainless steel locking mechanism and handle.
Standard crank handles are now made of 300 series stainless steel instead of zinc plated carbon steel. This new handle is identified by accessory code “K” in position IV of the accessory code matrix. This call out is only necessary when accessories are added to the valve. Standard SS valves without additional accessories will include 300 series SS crank handles. Stop washers for SS valves are also converting to 300 series SS.
The standard accessory lock brackets and levers are now also made of 300 series stainless steel instead of zinc plated carbon steel. The SS locking handle option is identified by accessory code “P” in position I of the accessory code matrix. The typical accessory code call out for locking handles for these valves now changes from “AZZA” to “PZZK.”
BVH and BVAH round body valves are rated for pressures to 7,500 psi. BVHS valves are available in stainless steel round bodies for 6000 psi in 1 to 6 in.
The “Accessory Codes” table has been updated to reflect these change.
