For a more cost-effective ball valve option for ASTM F1960 PEX-based hydronic heating and cooling applications, look to Uponor’s ProPEX® brass ball valves. These commercial-grade, full-port ball valves are available in ½” to 2″ sizes and are appropriate for non-potable PEX piping systems containing up to 50 percent propylene glycol. The valves feature blow-out-proof stems and are available with stem extension kits to accommodate up to 2″ of insulation. They are code-compliant and listed to ANSI/NSF 14 and cNSFus-rfh and tested to ASTM F877, ASTM F1960, CSA B137.5 and NSF 359.
