These thermoplastic ball valves feature improved ergonomics

| By Chemical Engineering



The new design of the Omni Type-27 compact ball valve (photo) includes a smooth ergonomic handle with open/shut indication. The rugged, injection-molded one-piece body features a single-threaded and sealed end carrier, and double-stem O-ring seals provide added leak protection. The Omni Type-27 ball valve is available with socket or threaded end connections in sizes from 3/8 through 2 in. Available body materials are PVC and CPVC, both with EPDM seals and PTFE seats. NSF-61 certified and rated for 150 psi at 70°F, the Omni Type-27 can be electrically actuated with this company’s Electromni Series 83 electric actuator. — Asahi/America, Inc., Lawrence, Mass.
