Willamette AWWA Metal Seated Ball Valve (VBL)
A Valve That Will Last for Decades - The Willamette AWWA Metal Seated Ball Valve (VBL) is the absolute premium quality valve for municipal applications. Water and sewage districts the world over recognize it as the best valve available for performance and reliability in critical service applications. The Willamette Metal Seat Ball Valves is available in sizes 6-60” (150-1500mm). Standard design pressures are up to 300 psi (2068 kPa).
Built for Critical Shut-Off Service - The VBL Metal Seated Ball Valve is a heavy-duty valve built especially for pump stop and check, pressure regulating, flow control and critical shut-off service. It is a superior valve because of its unique design features, uncompromising use of quality materials and the precision of its fabrication and assembly.
Design & Construction Features - Willamette Ball Valves have a full bore, unobstructed waterway resulting in the lowest (negligible) amount of head loss compared to any inline plug, gate, butterfly, or check valves. The metal seated ball valve utilizes a unique link and lever torque unit to permit very controlled opening and closing. VBL valves are ideally suited for pump stop/start and check service, controlling flow discharge to prevent pressure surges. These valves are highly recommended for high velocity flow control or buried service with critical isolation applications. Ruggedly designed with metal-to-metal seating to last for decades. Hundreds still operating satisfactorily for over 40 years. Fully automatic electric, hydraulic or pneumatic operators; or manual handwheels.
