A unique full flow ball valve from leading manufacturer Pegler is now available in stainless steel making it suitable for potable water applications.

The VSH FullFlow Ball Valve, part of the VSH XPress system, supports installations by streamlining material usage and technologies. With one system and one material the risk of damaging galvanic corrosion and condensation is eliminated and system reliability is enhanced. The inclusion of stainless steel in the product range will see more installations realise the benefits associated with this pioneering solution.

“Our integrated piping systems are designed and developed to provide solutions that streamline installations procedures and deliver efficiencies in plumbing systems,” commented Sindar Singh, Director of Product Line Valve Technology at Pegler.

The new VSH XPress FullFlow range combines the valve and fitting into one product. The addition of the stainless steel version (suitable for potable water applications and WRAS approved) joins the carbon steel version which has been revolutionizing applications since its inception. With no coatings to contaminate potable water there are no issues regarding drinking water quality and therefore provides even greater options when installing a complete system. The valve within a fitting is available in ½ to 2” diameter making it entirely suitable for small commercial applications.

“This is another product range which has combined our extensive knowledge and experience and is delivering greater efficiencies and reliability across all applications,” said Sindar. “The incorporation of a full-bore valve inside a streamlined fitting is a highly effective, solution and will assist in saving time, increasing reliability and continue the re-education of the way we approach pipe and plumbing systems. And, with this being WRAS approved installers can rest assured of quality and suitability from the onset.”

The new VSH XPress Valve bodies are laser marked with information including size, material and pressure and a colour coding indicates the type of material; red for carbon steel and green for stainless ensuring compatibility.

Each valve is available in three versions; swivel, press and threaded to give choice, flexibility and compatibility with the entire system.
