Type 546 Ball Valve
Available from GF Piping Systems
The Type 546 Ball Valve features a short overall length, buttress thread design and universal multi-function module. These features combine to provide the true union ball valve with added safety and functionality for a diverse range of applications. Available in PVC, CPVC, PP and PVDF, the Type 546 Ball Valve is ideally suited for water and wastewater treatment and chemical processing applications.
The valve nut’s buttress thread design, specifically selected for its high performance characteristics, offers robust construction and provides a stronger connection to piping systems for added safety. The short overall length allows for design of more compact systems for space-saving economies in plant construction.
Other outstanding new features include the valve’s multi-function module. This module significantly expands the number of uses for the Type 546 by allowing the user to easily add different accessories, actuators and switches. The multi-function module can also be used for easy wall/panel installation or as a position feedback unit by adding one of five different micro-switch options.
The Type 546 Ball Valve also includes a newly designed ratchet styled handle which prevents accidental movement for safer operation. A lockable handle and blow-out proof stem with an intended break point are other important added safety features.
