The new Apollo ball valves are available in seven sizes: 3/8", ½", ¾", 1", 1-1/4", 1-1/2" and 2". The valves offer key design features that enhance performance and increase reliability.
They're available in carbon steel, stainless steel, nickel and other alloy body styles, with threaded, socket weld and buttweld end connections.
New Apollo three-piece ball valves are designed and built for long life.

Other features include a swing-out center section, pressure-balanced solid ball and a unique gland plate that can be adjusted without removing handle or actuator.
Apollo 86B Series valves are equipped with a fully machined ISO 5211 mounting. The body and end cap design includes cast bosses for purge and drain ports. The valves are lockable in the open or closed position.
Apollo can supply the valves with more than a dozen options, including graphite packing, dry assembly, live loading for manual or actuator operation, cleaning for oxygen or industrial gases and extended bonnets.
