New design features V-notch ball with 180-degree turn rotation capability.

GF Piping Systems has introduced the new Metering Ball Valve Type 523, completing the company's 5 Series Generation of Ball Valves. Suitable for metering small media quantities and sampling, the new series features improved flow control, easy actuation, a new scale and display, and large material range for application versatility.
The new design features a special V-notch ball with 180-degree turn rotation capability, which provides improved flow control and better resolution. It also includes a circular scale that improves readability from every angle and an enhanced scale with high-contrast display for easy valve position reading.
The 523 Valve Series is available in a wide range of materials to meet the requirements of many different chemical applications. Materials include PVC, Polypropylene (PROGEF Standard) and PVDF Standard (CPVC and ABS are available on request) in 3/8-inch and ½-inch sizes. The valve can be easily actuated with GF Piping Systems EA21 Actuator and positioner to fully automate the user's flow control system.
Other attributes of the micro-doser valve include integrated stainless steel mounting inserts, PTFE ball seals, and built-in threaded inserts for facilitating quick and easy installation. With valve ends the same for all 5-series valves and a wide range of available connections, users are assured of maximum flexibility. Standards are available for ASTM, ISO, JIS, and BS.
