The Superlok SBTI is a trunion mounted instrumentation ball valve. They are ideal for high pressure shut-off or switching use. Upper and lower Trunnion bearing resist valve seizure, and increase valve live in tough applications.
Superlok ball valves offer a variety of options that will meet your specification needs. The Superlok compression end ball valves will exceed your expectations with the unique Superlok i-Fitting built-in gap gauge on each valve which ends over-tightening and under-tightening. The Superlok i-Fitting technology provides the perfect connection when the self-measuring gap gauge pops off at the precise point of compression. Mako Products is the USA’s only source for Superlok Ball Valves.
What Are Ball Valves?
Do you need an instrumentation ball valve for your applications? Mako Products can provide you with a variety of Superlok stainless steel ball valves. However, you may not be clear on how this type of valve works or how it can benefit you.
Simply put, a ball valve is a two-port valve designed as an "on or off" switch type valve. These valves are not designed for metering or throttling flow. When a ball valve is open, it should be all the way open. And when closed, it should make an air-tight seal and not allow any fluid or gas to pass.
The name ball valve comes from the spherical shape of the closure that turns sideways in the valve to block flow.
They're affordable, effective, and very useful in applications like feed pumps, boilers, petroleum extraction, and some medical devices.
