Assured Automation Announces the P2 Series Two-Way True Union PVC/CPVC Ball Valves
Assured Automation extends their Ball Valve Line with the addition of the P2 Series full port PVC true union ball valve. Available in ½" to 4" the P2 Series offers a variety of advanced features such as a high quality stem and ball support system and a multifunctional locking handle. In addition, the P2's DUAL BLOCK® system locks the union nuts preventing back-off due to vibration or thermal cycling. Deep grooves, thick o-rings and cushioned PFA seats contribute to strong seals at pressures up to 232 PSI while an integral mounting flange and support bracketing combine for a simple adaptation for actuation and anchoring.
This versatile industrial valve is available in PVC or CPVC with NPT or Glue socket end connections. Actuators are available in electric, pneumatic or manual handle.
Assured Automation's P2 series can be used successfully in many industrial applications, including industrial process piping systems, acid waste systems, high purity systems as well as plumbing and mechanical pipe systems.
P2 Series PVC Ball Valve Featured Application
A beverage bottling company was recently fined for acid and caustic leakage from overhead lines. They traced the problem to leaking true union CPVC valves on their wastewater neutralization lines. The vibration from nearby pumps caused the threaded unions on the valves to "back off", compromising the compression on the union o-rings, dripping acid and caustic on employees below which resulted in a fine from inspectors.
Since most CPVC union valves are manufactured in a similar fashion with the same potential to loosen, the bottling company considered replacing the valves with costly high alloy valves. Luckily they were introduced to the Assured Automation P2 Series valve.
The P2 Series features a patented system which locks the unions in place. Thermal expansion and vibration will not cause the P2 Series union ends to "back off". The P2 also features a double o-ring stem seal to ensure a bubble tight seal on the stem for the life of the valve.
The bottling company recently replaced their leaky valves with twenty of the P2 valves. It was an easy retrofit into their current system and they were back in full operation in one day. The workers are now confident working underneath the acid and caustic lines, knowing the superior features on these valves will give them bubble tight seals on their critical services.
