GF Piping Systems Ball Valve 543 Pro

Wednesday, 08 June, 2022 | Supplied by: GF Piping Systems

Designed for applications in the chemical process industry, desalination and water treatment, the Ball Valve 543 Pro features a variety of features. Combining the same modular and compatible construction with futureproof digital functionality makes it suitable for modernising existing piping systems across a range of applications. The Ball Valve 543 has been a durable and flexible solution used for mixing and distribution in applications ranging from water treatment to complex chemical and pharmaceutical processes. Building on this design, GF Piping Systems introduced the Ball Valve 543 Pro, which improves usability and adds sensors and actuators that offer new possibilities for process automation.

The three-way valve increases safety with a lever that prevents unintentional operation due to a locking ring. For an extra layer of security, a padlock can also be fitted in order to protect the valve against unauthorised usage. These improvements are relevant for industries where the safe and uninterrupted operation of piping systems is a priority.

The accessories include a manual spring return unit (or ‘dead man’s lever’) which is designed to ensure that the valve closes automatically when it is released. The product also features new stems with a predefined breakpoint between the actuator and ball valve. In the event of a blockage within the system, the breakpoint ensures that only the stem has to be replaced, rather than the entire ball valve, thereby reducing downtime and saving costs.

The device features a retrofittable position feedback sensor with an LED display that records the position of the control leaver. The compact double sensor can be mounted with a snap-on design and is suitable for tight spaces within the piping system. In addition to traditional manual operation and a pneumatic control unit, the ball valve can be operated fully automatically with an electrical actuator. As a result, it can be integrated into the end user’s process control and automation systems. The product also features a scannable Data-Matrix-Code that simplifies the storage of all component information and enables individual traceability.
