New 12-Page PBM Catalog On Multi-Port Ball Valves

Pittsburgh Brass Manufacturing Co. (PBM) of Irwin, Pa., has published a 12-page catalog on three-, four-, and five-way multi-port ball valves.

PBM's recently redesigned line of these valves incorporate streamlined investment cast components that, according to the company, increase the pressure and temperature range of the valve.

Pressures to 400 psi and temperatures to 550 degrees F are now possible.

Mated to an electric actuator, these valves tie directly into microprocessor-controlled systems through the use of an encoder or resolver. The manufacturer says that one valve/actuator takes the place of from two to four two-way valves and simplifies the piping system and computer programming.

Seventy-three flow patterns are available in valve sizes from Vi -inch to 4 inches. Materials of construction include 316 stainless steel, carbon steel, iron, bronze and other exotic alloys.

The multi-port valve catalog, section IV, has been upgraded to include a wealth of engineering data, including Cv charts, pressure/temperature curves and dimensional data.
