For more than 15 years, the ball valve 546 from GF Piping Systems has been valued across all industries for its high reliability, flexibility and durability. Whether for simple water pipe systems or complex chemical-pharmaceutical processes - the ball valve 546 has been established as the technical standard worldwide and has received a large number of important approvals.
With the 546 Pro, the piping specialist has now developed a platform that already accommodates future requirements today. Thomas Küssner, Product Manager of the ball valve 546 Pro, emphasized above all the customer-oriented improvement of the model: "With the 546 Pro, we are seamlessly continuing the success story of the ball valve 546. In the continued development of the ball valve, we have incorporated new customer requirements without compromising quality or reliability."
With the new model 546 Pro, GF Piping Systems has succeeded in making the replacement and retrofitting of valves in piping systems even more cost-effective and efficient. The new ball valve is of particular interest to companies that attach great importance to uninterrupted production processes during operation and at the same time want to make the piping system fit for future requirements. Above all, the modular platform design ensures easy and flexible adaptations to any requirement.
This allows the 546 Pro to be retrofitted with accessories and drives during ongoing production, without the need for costly interruptions. With the ball valve, both length changes in the piping system and time-consuming assembly work by expensive specialists are no longer necessary. When working with aggressive media - such as those found in the chemical, pharmaceutical or food processing industries - this approach significantly reduces safety risks.
Thanks to a special predetermined breaking point in the interface of the ball valve, defective valves can be replaced and retrofitted during operation within a few minutes. When an automated valve is subject to wear, it is no longer necessary to remove the entire ball valve or to carry out a time-consuming leak test. Thanks to the simple replacement without length changes on the pipe system, new calculations and expensive installation work by specialists are no longer required either. In addition, the effort for the update of technical documents is clearly reduced thanks to the high compatibility.
