Before knowing everything about 1 piece Flanged End Ball Valve, let us first have some information about a ball valve.

A ball valve is fundamentally an On/Off Valve.Β  Apart from operating in the flow line for On/Off operation, the ball valves can also be used for regulating the flow. It is constructed with a rotary ball in the center that controls the fluid flow throughout the valve. The ball can be either solid or hollow depending on the operation requirement. The valve body is made up of various materials including CF8 (SS304), CF8M (SS316), WCB, and other special metals. PTFE, RPTFE, Glass Filled PTFE (GFT), Carbon Filled PTFE (CFT), PEEK, etc are used as seat materials. Its different types of end connections are screwed (threaded), Socket weld, wafer type and flanged end. Ball Valves are designed with 1, 2 and 3 pieces depending on the application.

Now that we know about ball valve type and its composition, let’s have an insight into 1 piece Flanged End Ball Valve. OSKO Valves manufacture class 150 and class 300 (#150 and #300) 1 piece Flanged End Ball Valve that can be used in critical applications. The features of OSKO 1 piece Flanged End Ball Valve are as follows:

  • No leakage
  • 1-Piece Ball Valves have no joint and so there is no scope for external leakage. The only point of possible leakage is from the stem and gland area. But with aΒ  unique OSKO Push type gland design you have a provision to adjust the gland very easily by tightening just two nuts to prevent future leakages from the stem side.
  • Lower maintenance cost
  • We at OSKO Valves design our valves to be cost-effective. Hence we have included a special bolting type end piece/ insert (Conventionally other manufacturers give threaded End Piece which is very difficult to dismantle). This specially designed End Piece makes OSKO 1-Piece flanged End Ball valve maintenance very easy by loosening nuts.
  • Low Torque
  • Our Valves are designed for the least torque and over and above long and sturdy round handles gives extra leverage for even easier operation.
  • Our Valves are designed for the least torque which makes our valves suitable for actuation.
  • Easy Valve Actuation / Valve Automation
  • Electric (motorized) and pneumatic actuation is very easy with an integrally casted ISO mounting Pad in OSKO Ball Valves.

Concluding, 1 piece Flanged End Ball Valves come with longer life plus all-around efficiency and can be used in critical applications. OSKO Valves produce valves following all the International design standards, testing standards and end-to-end connecting standards guaranteeing the best quality, cost-efficient industrial valve.
