Uponor Launches New ProPEX® Brass Ball Valves for Radiant and Hydronic Piping Applications
Uponor North America (Uponor) is now offering a new, more cost-effective ball valve option for radiant heating/cooling and hydronic piping applications. These code-listed, commercial-grade, PEX-to-PEX, full-port ball valves are available in ½" to 2" sizes and are appropriate for non-potable PEX piping applications.
The valves are available on-demand in CAD and BIM design files via www.uponorengineering.com or www.arcat.com to make designing and specifying fast and easy. Additionally, they are listed to ANSI/NSF 14 and cNSFus-rfh and tested to ASTM F877, ASTM F1960, CSA B137.5 and NSF 359, allowing professionals the flexibility to add a reliable, code-listed valve anywhere in a commercial radiant heating/cooling or hydronic piping system.
"We are continuing to see growth in our indoor climate business, especially with hydronic piping applications,” says Casey Swanson, sr. manager, Commercial Segment at Uponor. “Offering these cost-effective, code-listed valves provides professionals in the industry with a trusted, reliable product for hydronic piping as well as radiant heating and cooling applications."
The valves, which are compatible with systems containing up to 50 percent propylene glycol, feature blow-out-proof stems and are available with stem extension kits to accommodate up to 2" of insulation in insulated piping applications. Additionally, both ends of the valves are manufactured with Uponor’s proven ProPEX® fitting system for expansion connections that cannot be dry fit and hold tight with up to 1,000 pounds of radial force.
