Hayward® QTA Series Ball Valves
Compact ball valves with true union body deisgn available in ½" to 2" sizes
The model QTA ball valve is Haywards least expensive true union ball valve design. This entry level ball valve has a full port design and is offerend in both gray and white PVC with EPDM seals and non-reversible TPV (Santoprene) valve seats. These are a popular valve for OEMs and suitable for commercial applications up to 150 PSI @70F (non-shock pressure). If you require PTFE seats or panel mounting then you will need to upgrade to the model TBB true union ball valves.
The true union valve body design enables the body to be serviced without removing the end connections from the pipeline; this is particulary helpful with socket (glued) end connections and it also simplifies installation of threaded connections. The T shaped handle requires little torque (force) to turn and a 1/4 turn is all that is required for on or off position. When hte valve handle is perpendicular to the valve body it is in the closed position.
