Miniature Ball Valve with 1/4-28 Threads

The MBVMD-1010-303 ball valve is a perfect solution for many miniature high technology type applications. You can think of it as the “baby bear” of ball valves. There are times, however, when you need a precision ball valve that is more compact than traditional NPT threaded ball valves but can also provide more flow than is possible with 10-32 threads and a relatively small orifice. That configuration is not easy to find. So, where do you turn?

Parker Static Dissipative PTFE Increase Operator Safety
Ravenna, OH – Parker Hannifin, the global leader in motion and control technologies, manufactures PTFE Hose for chemical transfer lines and high temperature hydraulic applications. When conveying non-conducting fluids such as oils, fuels and steam at high velocities through natural PTFE a static electrical charge can be generated. This electrical charge will try to find a path to ground and in the process can arc through the core tube as it grounds to the outer wire causing core tube damage and subsequent leakage.
