DUAL BLOCK true union ball valves.

DUAL BLOCK® true union ball valves

  • Advanced safety standard in thermoplastic valve design
  • The DUAL BLOCK® patented system prevents the accidental loosening of the nuts standing up to the most severe industrial application requirements
  • Particularly suited to hard working conditions where vibrations or thermal expansions may affect the performance of ordinary true union valves
  • Absolute trouble free service

Easyfit VEE and VXE true union ball valves

  • Advanced method of installation for an easy and safe tightening
  • The Easyfit patented system allows no over stressing of threaded components and pipeline jointing fittings for a long trouble free service
  • Problem solving operative concept for narrow spaces pipeline layouts:
    the stem of the valve is the pivot of the bevel gearing
  • Valves customisable by labelling or tagging in order to mark, protect and identify
  • Efficiency and cost effectiveness

Case Study


On-site sodium hypochlorite generation for water disinfection, Italy

Challenge: To handle a sea water generated sodium hypochlorite disinfection solution (a chlorine equivalent).

Solution: Aliaxis Utilities & Industry provided intensive consulting services. A range of FIP manual and actuated valves and PVC-C pipe and fittings were installed for fluid conveyance in the main process.
Specifically: ball valves VKD and TKD series, modulating process controlling butterfly valves FK series and diaphragm valves VM series, sediment strainers RV series, Check valves SXE series.

Result: A proven system that provides a cost-effective, reliable and safe alternative disinfection treatment and also eliminates storage, handling and purchase of hazardous chemicals.
