Val-Matic launched the QuadroSphere Ball Valve. Features include the unique abrasion-resistant ball design. Four recessed surfaces of the ball provide multiple flow paths through the valve for self-flushing to prevent clogging by avoiding high scale and solids buildup while also protecting the seats from damage, the company reported. Special machining of the ball substantially reduces the ball-to-seat surface contact, creating less resistance during cycles, lowering the operating torque. Reduced seat engagement results in up to 70% less wear, improving the performance life of the ball and seats.
