GF Piping SystemsExpanding thePro-RangeBall Valve 546 Pro and 543 Pro

The Pro lineupDriven to maximumperformanceBall valves are an indispensable part of everypiping system. They come in a variety of differentsizes, materials, and actuation possibilities to regulate and control processes in the most diversefields of application. To ensure the failsafe operation of the whole system, it is essential to trust inthe highest quality components with embeddedsafety measures to avoid unexpected downtimesand repairs.2This is why ball valves from GF Piping Systemsare always the ideal solution. Whether in thechemical process industry, microelectronics, orwater treatment: GF Piping Systems reliably coversa variety of applications with its broad productrange. From a basic, manually operated shut-offvalve to a fully automated ball valve, our solutionsoffer genuine added value and meet the highestperformance and quality requirements withoutcompromise.

The Pro lineupModularand flexibledesignOur comprehensive portfolio of highest qualityball valves and decades of experience enable us toensure state-of-the-art technology andcustomizable solutions for every application. Theversatile, modular design and the wide range ofavailable materials make the Ball Valve Pro lineup byGF Piping Systems the perfect solution forevery need.When optimizing a piping system, the Ball Valve 546 Pro andthe Ball Valve 543 Pro are decisive components in increasingoverall efficiency. They help cut service and retrofitting costswhile reducing the risk of operating errors. The Pro lineupmeets today's demands for valve technology with the usualhigh-quality standards of GF Piping Systems. Thanks toconsistent installation length with previous models, optionalaccessories can quickly and easily be adapted to meetnew requirements.100 % reliableRegarding reliability, the next generation of 2-way and 3-way Ball Valvesmatch the originals high standards andeven improve upon them thanks tobeing low in maintenance, availableworldwide in a wide variety of materials,and having received the most certification approvals.4100 % flexibleThanks to their modular design, the BallValve 546 Pro and 543 Pro can always beadapted to your requirements. Theirflexibility meets all-electric, pneumatic,or manual operation requirements,including optional accessories.Contribution to digitalizationThe 546 Pro and the 543 Pro can easily beretrofitted with electrical position feedback and provide relevant component information via the individual Data-MatrixCode on each valve.

Two-level safetyTo protect sensitive processes againstthe risks of errors, the Ball Valve Pro lineup comes as standard with a locking element and the possibility of using a locking device.5Complete compatibilityDue to the same installation length andthread as the predecessor valves, nocomplicated and expensive assemblywork is necessary. The 546 Pro and the543 Pro can be retrofitted with an actuatorand accessories during operation and at alow cost.Replacement within minutesThe newly designed security breakpoint inthe interface allows the user toreplace the coupling piece within a fewminutes and without interruption if an automated valve is subject to wear.

Ball Valve 546 ProSwiss qualityfor highestreliabilityLike their predecessors, the Ball Valve 546 Pro and 543 Proare produced by GF Piping Systems in Seewis(Grisons), Switzerland. High-quality manual and automaticvalves have been produced here for over half a century. Theycombine technological innovation with the highest materialselection standards, manufacturing, and quality testing forsafety, durability, and reliability.21546786

The Pro lineupThe proven originalsimproved once againAs the successors of proven originals, the Ball Valve 546 Pro and the Ball Valve 543 Pro have beenimproved in many ways. A reinforced security break point in the stem interface prevents leaks due to wear orexcessive force. Two integrated sealing rings in the stem interface provide double safety. Therefore, the546 Pro and the 543 Pro offer uncompromising reliability and can be flexibly expanded with optional accessories. All previous quality features of the ball valves have been migrated to the new generations.User-friendly operationThe ergonomically designed lever allows easy, precise operation. Toprotect against unintentional or unauthorized actuation, it is lockableas standard and functions with all-new accessory options. Even atool for removing the union bush is integrated.Safety through dead man's leverThe 546 Pro and 543 Pro are there for you in case you forget: A manual spring return unit ("dead man's lever") ensures that the valvecloses automatically when released. This reliable, compact, cost-effective solution ensures end-to-end process safety andeasily eliminates potentially far-reaching risks.10

Monitoring by the double sensorThe optional LED position feedback allows the current position of thevalve to be centrally recorded and checked at any time – for manually operated and automated valves. The compact dualsensor fits even in the tightest areas and is protected against the ingress of water and dust (protection class IP67).Information via Data-Matrix-CodeThe Data-Matrix-Code on the 543 Pro and 546 Pro simplifies the storage of all technical information for each valve and thus enables individual traceability. The faultless identification of each valvefacilitates easy installation, service, and repair.Driven to maximum performancePneumatic and electric actuators from GF Piping Systems help tomake processes more efficient and reduce maintenance costs.Where appropriate, they also contribute to digitization by making iteasier to access process and component data and use it tooptimize the system.11

Pneumatic Actuator & PositionerAll in onesolutionPrecise controlThe Electro-pneumatic Positioner was tuned and testedwith the Pneumatic Actuator and the Ball Valve 546 Pro/ 543 Pro. Thanks to the perfect alignment, precise flowcontrol becomes simple. Additionally, an auto-tunefunction ensures quick commissioning. The PneumaticActuator and the Electro-pneumatic Positioner are alsoavailable for diaphragm valves type DIASTAR.Pneumatic ActuatorThe pneumatic actuators are considerably morecompact than earlier models and therefore supportcompact installation with tighter spacing of PP-GFpipes, leaving more space in order to install allnecessary components more easily.AutomationEven though valves are pre-assembled, standard interfaces allow easy modification if required.The connection kit is compact and also holds anadditional inductive limit switch.Connected valvesFlexible sizing to find the right fit - The new design of theinterface between the Ball Valve 546 Pro / 543 Pro and thePneumatic Actuator range enable users to find the right fitin terms of torque and size even in low-pressureapplications.
