A Tri-Clamp Butterfly Valve comes equipped with a squeeze trigger that can be locked in 13 different positions. Some of the advantages over a traditional ball valve are that they are smaller and are able to open and close quickly. The disc is lighter than a ball so the valve doesn’t need as much structural support than a ball valve of the same diameter. These valves can be cleaned in place without worry of hidden areas for bacteria build up where sanitation is important. All of our Tri-Clover Butterfly Valves are manufactured using 304 stainless steel and come with tri-clamp connection on both ends.
