Kitz offers a variety of butterfly valves in combination with body materials and seats to meet customer needs.
Ball valves, one of KITZ’s main products, offer a lineup of valves compatible with a variety of materials. We also produce metal seats that support special lines and can handle operating temperatures up to 500°C, as well as Λ (lambda) port valves that can be closed and controlled to accommodate slurry fluids. We apply standards such as ANSI/ASME and API,MSS,ISO,DIN,JIS to supply worldwide.
The use of ball valves is extremely wide, and there is a tendency for demand to increase even further in the future.
・Electric power industry and natural gas pipelines
・Petroleum refining and petrochemical plants
・General chemicals, machinery plant equipment and facilities
・Irrigation and pollution prevention
・Water and sewerage and gas supply for general households
We provide a variety of ball valves with standard specifications to meet the diverse use conditions of our customers.
It is necessary to carefully examine the conditions of the target fluid, such as fluid, pressure, and temperature, before selecting the fluid.
For details on model selection, please download the catalog and check the description.
■Each valve has a working range of pressure and temperature. Be sure to confirm the conditions of the fluid before selecting.
■The standard soft seat of our ball valves uses PTFE based seat material, which limits the operating pressures and temperatures. For high-pressure, high-temperature fluids, select the “Metaball” or “Carbotite” series.
■We recommend PVC ball valves made of stainless steel and high-pressure-resistant resin for fluids with flow rate, differential pressure, and piping conditions, ductile iron ball valves for high-pressure gas and steam fluids, and cast ball valves for petrochemical plants.
■We recommend the “Λ Port” series for fluids such as textiles and slurries, and the “Metal Ball” and “Λ Port” series, which use metal sheets, when used with semi-open or restricted flow paths.
■Select a 3-way ball valve for the line for changing the flow path or for shunting and fluid mixing.
■In response to the need for automated valve opening and closing, our ball valves are available in standard models with pneumatic (B-type and FA-type) and electric (EXH-type) actuators for automatic operation.
