Multiport Ball Valve to be Discontinued

In order to meet the latest industry requirements, and customer demands we have re-engineered the Multi-Port ball valve. This will result in the discontinuation of the current style, and an introduction of our New Type 23 Multi-Port ball valve. The New Type 23 will first be available in PVC & CPVC.

PVC & CPVC Multi-Port Ball Valves (1/2" – 4") will be discontinued effective 6/2/03.These Multi-Ports will be replaced by the Type 23 Multi-Port Ball Valve, which has many added Features and Benefits as outlined below.(PP & PVDF versions to be re-engineered in the near future)


We will begin shipping the New Type 23, as old style Multiport inventory is depleted, on or about 5/1/03.

Parts Availability:

We will be able to supply replacement parts for a period of five years effective the 3rd quarter of 2003.


The New Type 23 valve will be priced the same as the old Multi-Port, even with the additional features and benefits.


The Type-23 (1/2" – 2") will not have parts or face to face dimension interchangeability. (3" & 4" will have face to face interchangeability only) Flanged models will have face to face dimension interchangeability only, but no parts interchangeability.

Features and Benefits:
