Innovative Core Design Locating an Internal Ballcheck within a Metal Seated Valve. The Jerguson 360 Series valve is equipped with many features that elevate its performance above traditional style safety ballcheck valves. Designed to alleviate a widespread problem, the 360 Series’ bypass mode seeks to remove guess work or operator error during commissioning. The quarter turn position — visible handle provides clear operation status and a locking pin to secure its position. Patent # US9,377,113 B2

As opposed to traditional ballcheck valves, it is impossible to get a false level reading with a 360 Series valve during commissioning. When using a traditional ballcheck valve and commissioning a gage assembly when there is already liquid present in the vessel, it is common for the operator to open the valve too quickly, causing the ballcheck to engage and the level gage to display a false level reading! That problem is eliminated with the 360 Series valve. The video below demonstrates the simplified commissioning procedure of the 360 Series valve.
Jerguson Safety Ballcheck Valves are an essential component of a glass level gage assembly. In addition to isolation, Safety Ballcheck Valves provide an automatic shut-off for glass level gage products in the event of a catastrophic glass or gasket failure.
