Milwaukee Valve has recently expanded the
line not only by adding
2 1/2", 3", and 4" press ball valves, but by also offering our customers a screw-in fitting made of lead-free alloy for gate, globe, check, and Butterball® valves. UltraPress ball valves are available with Press x Hose ends. These fittings are in addition to the 1/2" to 4" UltraPress ball valves we currently offer. Our UltraPress line makes for quick installation when compared to standard soldering or screw-in installations. UltraPress valves are quickly "pressed" into place using compression tools and equipment commonly used by plumbing and HVAC professionals.
With no open flame required, water service connections can be made wet or dry, making repairs quick and easy. Plus, UltraPress eliminates the cost of solder, flux, propane torches, oxygen/gas bottles, "hot" work permits and other heat-installation requirements.
All Milwaukee Valve ball valve extensions and accessories are available for the UltraPress line, including insulator, extension and lockout handles. Before being offered for sale, each UltraPress design undergoes working pressure, in-line holding strength and mechanical bending testing that duplicates expansion/contraction stresses the installed valve will experience during its service life. Our stringent testing brings safety, durability, value, and savings to our customer base.
