Stainless Steel Ball Valves
While PVC is an extremely versatile material, some jobs need something a little tougher. For those jobs, we carry a wide selection of high-quality metal valves, including GEM stainless steel ball valves. These top-of-the-line stainless steel ball valves are available in a variety of sizes: ½”, ¾”, 1”, 1 ¼”, 1 ½”, and 2”. These stainless ball valves are available with threaded NPT ends, which can connect to any other pipes or fittings with NPT threads.
Every stainless steel ball valve we sell is strong, reliable, and will withstand years of use or disuse. These valves also feature a lever handle with an easy-grip surface, which makes them easy to turn on and off. What really sets these products apart is that when they are in the open position, our GEM stainless steel ball valves will create no loss of flow due to their full port design!
Ball valves are a quarter turn valve, meaning you turn the lever 90 degrees to switch between open and closed positions. When the valve is in the open position, the ball’s hole aligns with the flow and allows fluid to pass through. When the valve is closed, the hole is covered so no fluid can pass through. The threaded NPT (National Pipe Thread) ends are compatible across-the-board, making our stainless steel ball valves great for any job. Stainless steel is one of the highest-quality materials for any valves, so a stainless ball valve is your best pick for a variety of applications.
Our stainless ball valves, manufactured by GEM, have an outstanding 1,000 psi rating and feature durable blow-out proof stems. While some ball valves may lessen the flow of fluid passing through them, ours do not. Their full port (or full bore) design means that the opening in the valve’s ball is as wide as the pipeline it connects to. Most of the time, a valve of this caliber would be more expensive, but not with us. Our stainless steel ball valves are competitively priced, meaning you get the best possible bang for your buck!
