Ball cavity relief hole
The ball of SAFI ball valves may be provided with a lateral hole on the upstream side to
vent the ball cavity in the closed position. This is recommended to avoid trapped pressurized
fluids and avoids accidents with chemicals which tend to decompose, producing gases such
as hydrogen peroxide.
3 way Valves
Three-way ball valves are available up to DN100, with L-Ball, double L or T-ball.
Available in manual and actuated options.

ABS - Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene
ABS was introduced in 1948, it is a tough and durable general purpose thermoplastic material, it is widely used in industrial applications including safety hard hats, automotive parts, computer keyboards and VDU’s.
Due to its lightweight and high impact strength it has proven ideal for rigid pressure piping
systems. Its solvent cement jointing system makes it a popular choice for many industries as
installation can be carried out without the need for special tools or equipment.
It has a wide operating temperature range which makes it the material of choice for many
water treatment, reverse osmosis, pure water, cooling and distribution systems. ABS remains
ductile even at low temperatures (usual precautions should be taken to avoid freezing).
Acrylonitrile : provides good thermal and chemical resistance properties.
Butadiene : adds good impact strength and durability.
Styrene : gives a glossy finish for great flow characteristics and makes for easy machining
