PE ball valves can be welded to all PE100 and PE80 pipes making the valve an integral part of the fully welded leak-free pipe system.

Pressure ratings

PE ball valves are pressure rated up to 16 bar for water applications and 10 bar for gas applications. Depending on the requested pressure rating, the valves are available with SDR11 or SDR17.6 spigot ends.

CERTUS PE Ball Valves

  • Sizes range from d20 – 180mm
  • Manufactured from high performance PE100
  • The valves meet all the requirements of EN1555-4, ISO4437-4, GIS/V7-2 and EN12201-4.
  • The main internal construction of the PE ball valve is based on a sophisticated seat arrangement for reliable sealing performance.  By means of a seat retainer, the ball seat is firmly kept in place. The seat compression is accurately set during the welding.

MAGNUS PE Ball Valves

  • Sizes range from d25 – 180mm
  • Manufactured from PE100-RC which offers excellent resistance to slow crack propagation.
  • The valves meet all the requirements of the EN1555-4, ISO4437-4, GB15558.3 and EN12201-4.
  • The main internal construction of the PE ball valve is based on a large ball seat arrangement for reliable sealing performance. By means of a seat retainer and dedicated support ring, the ball seat is firmly kept in place. The seat compression is accurately set by fixating the ball seat arrangement into the body prior to welding.

Construction and material selection

The spigots are butt welded to the body for long term reliability. Welding is performed to the leading DVS2207-1 guidelines. The skimming and welding steps are performed by fully automated welding stations, guaranteeing ultimate consistency of the ball valves.

The seal is made from high quality and durable NBR rubber. The ball is made from engineering plastic offering scratch resistance and is carefully machined for the lowest operating torque. The grease has been selected following extensive tests to reduce friction and wear, ensuring long term performance of the valve.

Testing

Every valve is individually tested and given a unique serial number which can be traced as far back as the raw polyethylene material.

During type testing, the valves are not only submitted to various long and short term leak tightness checks, but also to rigorous pulling, bending and thermal cycling tests. The operating mechanism and topcap can withstand high prescribed torques at extreme temperatures.
