EB Series Encapsulate Ball Valve

SSP is proud to introduce the new EB series Encapsulated Ball Valve. With unique features like its blowout proof stem to maximize safety, and one-piece packing - in all sizes - to ensure reliable and representative samples.

In addition, its forged one-piece body minimizes leak paths and offers you a choice in end connections, including all popular tube fitting configurations. Plus, the 'drop in fit' design allows for easy replacement. FloLok EB Series Encapsulated Ball Valves are part of the growing family of FloLok instrumentation valves.  They are ideal valves for analytical instrumentation sampling, control systems, and other medium-pressure applications. EB Series ball valves use one-piece encapsulating packing to ensure leak-tight operation and provide positive shutoff in high- low- and dynamic pressure applications.  The encapsulating PTFE packing eliminates dead space to reduce purging time and improve system cleanliness. EB Series ball valves also feature an innovative packing retainer that prevents the stem from blowing out when making inline packing adjustments. flolok valves
