VEE Series True Union Ball Valve

The VEE is ideal for light industrial and water applications.

  • EASYFIT multifunction handle
  • Ultracompact double block design
  • Available exclusively in PVC with EPDM seals

 

The VEE is ideal for light industrial and water applications. The VEE shares many features with the VXE such as the ultra-compact double block design, and full port bi-directional operation. A threaded seat stop carrier provides improved seal integrity under tough service conditions while the removable handle also functions as a tool for ball seat adjustment. The VEE also features the EASYFIT multifunction handle which doubles as a tool for ball seat adjustment and for tightening union nuts precisely. The VEE is also available exclusively in PVC with EPDM seals and either socket or threaded end connections.

Pressure: 232 psi at 73°F

Sizes: 1/2" – 4"

EASYFIT VALVE ACCESSORIES

The Easytorque kit is the new innovative tool designed by IPEX for optimal tightening of all threaded components on our EASYFIT valves. The kit has been developed to precisely adjust the tightening torque of the VKD, VXE and VEE ball seat carrier, SXE main seal safe blocked carrier, and all EASYFIT valve union nuts by applying the proper torque as specified by the manufacturer. The use of the Easytorque kit is recommended to minimize mechanical stresses on thermoplastic threads caused by overtightening. This tool will help prevent fluid leakage, optimize ball valve operation and minimize the wear on the elastomeric seals. The use of the EASYFIT torque wrench also reduces the risk of using metal wrenches or channel locks, thus causing accidental damage to the union nuts.

EASYFIT LABELLING SYSTEM

It is often necessary to customize a valve by labelling or tagging it in order to mark and identify it according to specific needs or service. The EasyFit Labelling System is a complete product line developed to customize individual valves, and includes all the necessary tools: LCE Module, LSE Set and the EasyFit software. Available for the VXE, VEE and SXE.
