The unique model design features minimal line deflection and full port flow from low pressure drop. Valves are available for pipe or tube sizes from 2-inch to 6-inch, bi-directional (divert or converge), air and dust tight, pressure or vacuum applications and available in carbon steel or stainless steel contact surfaces.
