DMIC has implemented the following product improvements to standard stainless steel ball valves. These changes affect only the stainless steel models in series BVH, BVAH, and BVHS ball valves. Prices are unaffected by these changes.
Standard crank handles are now made of 300 series stainless steel instead of zinc plated carbon steel. This new handle is identified by accessory code “K” in position IV of the accessory code matrix. This call out is only necessary when accessories are added to the valve. Standard SS valves without additional accessories will include 300 series SS crank handles. Stop washers for SS valves are also converting to 300 series SS.
Locking Handle Accessories
The standard accessory lock brackets and levers are now also made of 300 series stainless steel instead of zinc plated carbon steel. The SS locking handle option is identified by accessory code “P” in position I of the accessory code matrix. The typical accessory code call out for locking handles for these valves now changes from “AZZA” to “PZZK”.
The “Accessory Codes” table has been updated to reflect these change. Get the update here: Accessory Codes Table
