In the standard version, the media wetted seat seals are made of PTFE with glass-fibre reinforcement (reinforced PTFE). This is what gives them exceptionally high material resistance when exposed to changing media and enables a wide range of applications and a high level of safety when using dangerous media. The stainless steel ball valves are suitable for use in applications at temperatures between -40 °C and 220 °C.

Thanks to its two-piece body, the ball valve has only one connection point, guaranteeing reliable tightness. The ball valve has a fire safe design as standard in accordance with API 607 and DIN EN ISO 10497, with the housing and shaft seal made of graphite.

The risk of fire can exist in all types of production plant, but fire protection measures play an important role in some industrial sectors and processes. In these areas of application, a fire safe valve such as the GEMÜ BB0F is the right choice. The ball valve is available in nominal sizes DN 15 to DN 200 with flanged connections ANSI class 150 and PN40/PN16.

Alongside applications in the chemical industry, this ball valve can also be used for heating systems and HVAC applications. The new GEMÜ BB0F series includes the GEMÜ B2F manual ball valve, the GEMÜ B4F pneumatic ball valve and the GEMÜ B6F motorized version.
