PRODUCT FOCUS: INDUSTRIALPVFPRODUCTS CRYOGENIC BALL VALVES Sharpe cryogenic ball valves are designed for extreme low temperatures, incorporating extended bonnets to ensure stem-sealing integrity. An extended one-piece cast-bonnet and extended stem distances stem seals from cryogenic fluids, preventing seizing. The bonnet extension length is in accordance with BS 6364 and wall thickness complies with ASME B16.34. The stem-to-ball contact area is wider and larger, allowing the valve to be used for higher torque applications. Special seat materials for extreme lowtemperature fluids, highly polished ball and internals ensure valve sealing capabilities. Sizes range from 1/4” to 4” with a variety of end connections available.

The T-547 rough brass, T-548 satin-finished brass and T-549 chrome-plated brass commercial sillcocks are ideal for high-frequency use in residential and commercial applications. The units are actual ball valves and therefore are easier to actuate, have improved flow, as well as greater longevity, Legend notes. Included with each model are a loose key and a brown Softouch thermoplastic rubber-coated aluminum handle, which won’t crack or discolor and is very durable. The models are compliant to ASSE 1011 and are IAPMO and CSA-B64.2.2 listed. They conform to ANSI/ASME 1.20.1 and 1.20.7, and have a cold-working pressure of 125 psi.

The union tail piece is coated with thermo-baked epoxy polymer with high dielectric strength (greater than 1,500 volts/mil), which insulates against galvanic corrosion and breaks stray current flow. This coating provides resistance to wear, abrasion and corrosion. The pipe fittings are designed and tested in accordance with ASSE Standard 1079.
