Victaulic introduced the Series 727 ball valve, a high-pressure NACE-compliant valve with grooved ends for upstream oil applications. The company said that the internal design of the ball valve has been streamlined, and flow testing demonstrated up to one-third better flow than competitive standard port ball valves. The two-piece valve has
a floating ball for lower torque requirements and is offered with manual handles with an integral tamper-resistant lock/seal. Designed for full open or shut-off service, the valves can accommodate pressures of up to 1,500 psi and are available in sizes ranging from 2 in. to 6 in. Oilfield applications include wellhead hookups, flowlines, production headers, produced water lines, heater-treaters, separators, tank batteries, and saltwater disposal.
