Ball Valves: A Closer Look

Ball valves are universally used in many industrial process applications—from air, water and steam to process fluids, slurries or powders. Proconex offers general, severe, fire-safe, sanitary, and specialty service valves. We have the products, inventory, and qualified technicians to service any valve and control device you need to operate your plant.

Floating Ball Valves

Proconex has an extensive range of full and reduced bore floating ball valves serving a wide spectrum of applications in the oil and gas, refinery, petrochemical, chemical, pharmaceutical and allied process industries. Our portfolio includes a diverse range of API 607/API 608 standard and customized ball valves that can be configured to suit most process applications. Proconex offers both manual and automated packages for quick delivery.

Size ranges: 1/4 inch through 16 inch
Pressure rating: ASME class 150 to 1500

Trunnion Mounted Ball Valves

Our broad range of API 6D trunnion design ball valves services the upstream oil and gas industry. We offer Double Block and Bleed and double piston effect designs. The trunnion design ensures that the ball is fixed within the valve body and the seats are energized to the ball. The differential pressure loading is distributed to the trunnion plates and bearings, resulting in smaller seating surface designs and greatly reduced break to open and operating torque.

Size ranges: 2 inch through 60 inch
Pressure rating: ASME class 150 to 2500
