Corporation Stops, Curb Stops & Meter Valves

Corporation Stops


This field-proven Corporation Stop incorporates the performance-proven design features of the popular Ford Ball Valve. It reduces the inherent problems of hard turning and of temporary weeping under high test pressures, which is sometimes encountered in standard plug-type Corporation Stops. The Ford Ballcorp is available in 3/4", 1", 1-1/4", 1-1/2", and 2" sizes, with most styles of outlet connections.  It may be installed in either a dry main or a main under pressure with a standard tapping machine or saddle.  During the installation of almost every Corporation Stop, a wrench must be used across its body to make final adjustments in the main or saddle, or to connect the service line to its outlet.  The “square” design puts the wrench flats where they should be – at the strongest part of the body, thus minimizing the danger of leaks from distortion.
