Natural gas service demands a no-leak seal, and Apollo ball valves deliver.

Stem, seats, seals, trim, and alloys are all optional on almost every Apollo ball valve. Apollo uses the finest grade alloys, milled or fabricated to the most critical of standards.The Apollo ball valve for natural gas should be your first choice for natural gas applications. They are available in a variety of configurations, connection types, and port sizes. While lead content is not big a concern for natural gas valves, Apollo offers lead free valves that meet or exceed federal regulations, and has always been ahead of the curve when it comes to safety and innovation.
