Victaulic has introduced the Series 727 ball valve, a high-pressure, enhanced-port valve with grooved ends for upstream oil applications. The internal design of the Series 727 valve has been streamlined to provide enhanced flow characteristics, offering improved throughput. Flow testing demonstrated up to one-third better flow than competitive standard-port ball valves. Featuring grooved ends, the Series 727 is joined using Victaulic couplings, enabling quicker and easier installation and maintenance than flanged valves. The Series 727 weighs one-third less than equivalent flanged valves, further easing handling and installation. The two-piece valve features a floating ball for lower torque requirements and is offered with manual handles with an integral tamper-resistant lock/seal. The Series 727 is designed for full-open or shutoff service. Series 727 valves can accommodate pressures up to 1,500 psi and are available in sizes ranging from 2 to 6 in. Common oilfield applications include wellhead hookups, flowlines, production headers, produced-water lines, heater treaters, and separators.
