A high-rise oval latching handle is available as an option on the Conbraco line of Apollo® 77C Series bronze ball valves. These valves feature corrosion-resistant all-cast bodies and end caps. Their chrome-plated and machined solid brass ball creates less turbulence and better flow characteristics than full-port, hollow ball versions. The Conbraco oval latching handle, added to help prevent accidental valve operation, is made of 304 SS and includes a stainless steel nut. The oval wheel is elevated to isolate an operator's knuckles and hands from the valve body and pipeline. Mating holes in the lever and sleeve permit padlocking of the valve in either closed or open positions. Conbraco.
