Parker Instrumentation has launched a new range of swing-out ball valves offering high pressure operation to 2500 PSIG as standard – a figure which is up to 100% higher than many similar products on the market. The new SWB Series valves have with a body design that allows the valve module to swivel on any of the corner bolts for complete flexibility of mounting. Installation is further eased by the optional availability of valves with integral compression tube ends, simplifying assembly while additionally reducing both size and the number of potential leak paths in the fluid system. Eighteen versions of SWB Series valves are available initially, for tube or pipe sizes from 1/4 to 1 inch/6 to 25 mm – a range suiting both process and instrumentation valve applications. Fabricated from stainless steel, the valves are rated at 2500 PSIG/172 bar as standard. As most users choose swing-out style valves for their high coefficient of flow (Cv) ratings, this high-pressure capability provides a useful additional boost for users seeking to maximise flow rates.
