DuraChoice Manufacturing recently added seven new high pressure ball valves, which are great for the oil and gas industry, to its product lineup. And you can get them now at DirectMaterial.com. With pressure ratings up to 6,000 PSI, they are suitable for oil fields and many high pressure applications. And DuraChoice notes that the valves meet NACE MR0175 standards for corrosion resistance in petroleum and natural gas capturing and refining industries.

They feature the same blowout-proof stem and heavy-duty locking handles incorporated in all of DuraChoice's stainless steel valves. They are available in 1/4" to 2" connection sizes. The highest rated of the bunch are the 6,000 PSI-rated stainless steel VBS6K and the carbon steel VBC6K. Both of these full port ball valves have PEEK® ball seats, which are highly resistant to thermal degradation and corrosion. [caption id="attachment_104" align="alignleft" width="288"] The new full port 2,000 psi ball valve by DuraChoice[/caption] The VBS3K and VBC3K are made of SS316 and WCB carbon steel respectively, and are pressure rated up to 3,600 PSI. These valves have the same dimensions as their 6,000 PSI counterparts. The difference is in the Delrin® ball seats in each valve. Delrin® is a more economical, but is known for its mechanical strength at high pressures and excellent resistance to a wide variety of chemicals. The VBS2KF is made of SS316, while the VBC2KF is WCB carbon steel. More compact than the parts above, these valves are full port and are rated at 2,000 PSI. They feature a seal-welded two-piece design similar to the valves above. These are more cost-effective, however, for projects that do not require higher pressure rated parts. [caption id="attachment_105" align="alignright" width="288"] The newest addition to the DuraChoice high pressure ball valve line is the VBC2KRH.[/caption] The VBS2KRH features a one-piece standard port hex bar stock design. The most economical of the new parts introduced by DuraChoice, the VBSKRH is suitable for a wide range of liquids and gasses. Like the VBS2KF and VBC2KF, this valve features an RPTFE ball seat.
