Sem-Tec Hollow Ball concept was conceived in 1968. Sem-Tec holds United States Patents: #3518742 awarded July 1970, #3603560 awarded September 1971. Since the Hollow Ball concept was first introduced at Sem-Tec the progress and technical improvements made at Sem-Tec have brought a product to the Ball Valve Industry that is the ultimate in quality, reliability, and cost.
Sem-Tec Hollow Balls are now being manufactured and used by companies internationally. Many companies have gone to extensive testing to prove "in line" performance. They found Sem-Tec Hollow Balls to be as effective as the solid wall type for the services required. We manufacture in sizes ranging from 1 1/2" thru 8" in carbon steel and stainless steel.
