Omega Valves has different types of stainless steel ball valve available to meet your requirements.

Ball valves are used for isolating or controlling the flow of fluids. The ball valve can be operated either manually by hand (locally) or automatically by an actuator (remotely). Most ball valve types are bi-directional and can be rotated in either direction.


Benefits of stainless steel ball valve

The stainless steel ball valve is the ideal option for industrial applications.

Feature Benefit
Corrosion resistance Stainless steel is highly resistant to corrosion, stain, rust and environmental conditions. Stainless steel eliminates the need for a protective layer of coating or paint. 
Extreme temperature Stainless steel can withstand extreme temperatures ranging from -196⁰c to +425⁰c.
Clean

Stainless steel is the preferred choice for cosmetic, pharmaceutical and food manufacturing industries. The material is highly resistant to corrosion and rusting, and supports the CIP (clean in process) procedure to prevent germ accumulations.

Stainless steel hygienic ball valves are highly polished to avoid build-up of deposits on the metal surface, and are designed to avoid ‘dead areas’.

Versatile

The 2 piece and 3 piece stainless steel ball valves are long lasting and easily maintainable.

Spare parts for the valves are readily available and can be replaced easily to maintain a continuous work flow. These valves are versatile in nature and can be used in another section of the plant for different services.
