Rugged Construction: Hayward's QVC and QTA Series Compact Ball Valves feature a rugged, all-plastic design found only on higher cost ball valves. Features such as Santoprene (TPV) seats, full porting and a 150 PSI pressure rating are all standard on every size compact ball valve.
Cost-Sensitive Applications: This compact ball valve is perfect for OEM and other applications that require a reliable ball valve at an economical price. This compact ball valve has been designed and tested to make certain it will perform year in and year out in the most demanding applications without leakage or failure. The internal components of a compact ball valve are completely encapsulated within the valve body in a one-step manufacturing process. There is absolutely no danger of leakage through assembled parts. This also means that the valve never requires adjustment since all internal components are sealed inside the one-piece valve body. This compact ball valve is ready to be put into service right out of the box.
Lightweight and Compact: Compact ball valves are designed to fit into spaces too small for other valves. They are about 1/3 the overall size of a plastic true union valve and they weigh an average of 50% less. This makes them ideal for skidmounted and other applications where space and weight are critical considerations.
True Union Design: This makes these valves very easy to maintain by allowing for easy removal from a piping system without breaking down piping connections. Just unscrew the two assembly nuts and lift the valve body out of the line.
Cant Rust, Wont Corrode: Their all-plastic construction means they will never fail, stick, or jam because of rusted or corroded parts. And they'll work in places and environments where metal valves must be painted or coated just to survive.
