NATURAL GAS VALVES
COUPLINGS & FITTINGS
Bubble tight shut-off, lightweight, super strong, compact
design, chrome plated stems prevent galling and
stripping. With a full line of differential, natural gas, static,
integral and block & bleed, these valves excel under
virtually any condition or installation.
POLYBALLTM Polyethylene Ball Valves
Available in both high density (PE 3408/PE 4710) and
medium density (PE 2406/PE 2708) polyethylene, in full
and reduced port models, these valves meet or exceed all
industry testing and performance standards. Plus, each valve
features full forward and backward traceability.
WeldballTM Steel Ball Valves
Our all-welded gas distribution
valve is the overwhelming choice for meter and regulatory
stations, system blow down and hot tap applications or
any job that requires positive shut-off.
Along with operating pressures to 125psi and a temperature
range of -20 F to 140 F, our polyethylene ball valves offer
top flow capacity, a great size range, ease of operation
and unmatched value. Use them confidently in natural gas
distribution and gathering, landfill and inert gas applications.
Innogaz Couplings & Fittings
Check out the full line of PE-4710 Innogaz couplings and
tapping tees. All Innogaz fittings are universal barcoded for
ease of intallation and quality control.
Electrofusion Control Boxes
Available with a hand-held Smart Scanner, processing
is easier and faster than the standard scanner pen. And
NOW, the optional integrated GPS stores the fitting location
of each fusion performed. Made in USA.
No assembly, no maintenance, meet all
applicable ANSI, ASTM, ASME, AISI, API,
IEC, and ISO standards. These joints
eliminate electrical shorts and stop stray
current in pipeline systems.
