Asahi/America, Inc., introduces the latest addition to
their Halar® (E-CTFE) piping system line, the Halar®
true union ball valve. The new ball valve can operate as a
manual valve or be paired with Asahi/America’s pneumatic
or electric actuators. The true union design allows for
flow and pressure in either direction and eliminates the
stress inherent to a ball secured only at the top.
Halar is the most corrosive
Essentially a 1:1 alternating
ethylene and CTFE
about 80% CTFE,
one of the most chemically resistant building blocks that
can be used to make a polymer. Additionally, E-CTFE has
good electrical properties and a broad-use temperature
range from cryogenic to 300º F (150º C).
The new ball valve is available in 1/2” through 1”, features
smooth turning in even the most difficult applications and
has a unique stem design which makes it “blow out” proof.
