Bonomi North America high-pressure ball valves

Bonomi North America introduced a new line of high-pressure carbon steel ball valves for use in hydraulic applications.

Bonomi ball valvesThe new valves come in two-way and three-way configurations with a choice of NPT or SAE thread end connections.

Both the two-way valves (3200 Series NPT/3300 Series SAE) and the three-way valves (3400 Series NPT/3500 Series SAE) are available in 3/8-inch through 1-inch sizes. Rated working pressures range from 5145 to 7350 PSI. Like all Bonomi valves, they are 100% tested to rated pressure in the open and closed position before shipping.

While a lever handle is standard, an integral ISO 5211 mounting pad simplifies actuation on the new valves. They are also available in factory-assembled automated valve packages with Bonomi’s Valbia brand electric or pneumatic actuators.

Valbia electric actuators have dual 100VAC – 240VAC or dual 24 AC/DC reversing motors with torque limiters, thermal protection, auxiliary limit switch, NEMA 4X indoor use enclosure, manual override, and position indicator as standard. Options include a 4-20mA positioner, battery backup and 180° rotation. Both technopolymer and powder-coated cast aluminum enclosures are available.

Valbia pneumatic rack-and-pinion actuators for the new hydraulic valve packages feature anodized aluminum bodies. They are designed for 80 PSI control air pressure and are operable using air, water, nitrogen or other compatible hydraulic fluids from 40 to 120 PSI. Dual travel stops are standard.
