Ball valves can be used in many different applications. However, they are primarily used in industrial processes, in the fields of water supply and water/waste water treatment. In addition to this, GEMÜ plastic ball valves are successfully used in the chemical industry. Alongside valves with straight through body (2/2-way valves), T valves (3/2-way valves) are also available. Accessories, such as seal adjusters and stroke limiters, manual overrides, proximity switches, optical position indicators and electrical position indicators, round off the ball valve portfolio.
The major areas of use are industrial applications, above all for water supply and water treatment. Ball valves are also suitable for applications in the chemical industry.

Gemu Australia | Valves, Measurement & Control Systems
GEMÜ is one of the leading manufacturers of valves, measurement and control systems, and is the world market leader of valves for sterile applications in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. This position was achieved following GEMÜ's comprehensive investments in application-specific research and development, amounting to more than 5 per cent of the company's turnover.
The level of innovation is closely linked to location - Germany is regarded globally as a nation of engineers. GEMÜ is over halfway up the chart of the top 1,000 German global market leaders for 2011. The GEMÜ headquarters is in the region that is home to the highest density of global market leaders, the region of Heilbronn-Franken in Baden-Württemberg. GEMÜ's international success is based essentially on the enterprise and pioneering spirit of Fritz Müller, who developed the world's first plastic process valve in 1964. This directly controlled solenoid valve was the starting point for the foundation of GEMÜ that year.
