HB Series Ball Valves
Introduction
Parker High Pressure HB4 Series Ball Valves, featuring Suparcase® ball and trunnions, provide reliable shut-off or switching
functions. The Suparcase® trunnion style ball enhances the resistance of the trunnions against seizure and the resistance of
the spherical ball to particle abrasion. The compact and rugged design employs spring-loaded seats for high cycle life and low
operating torques at pressures up to 10,000 psig (689 bar).

Specifications
Three-way HB4X design
• Pressure rating: 10,000 psig (689 bar) CWP
with PEEK (PKR) Seats;
6,000 psig (414 bar) CWP
with PCTFE (K) Seats
• Temperature rating: -65 ˚F to 400 ˚F (-54 ˚C to 204 ˚C)
• Body material: Stainless Steel
• Body configurations: Two-way and Three-way
• Port connections: Tube compression (CPITM / A-LOK®);
Short and Long Female NPT
• Port size: 1/8" - 1/2" (6mm to 12mm)
Flow Data
Two-way HB4L: Cv = 1.02; xT = 0.42; Orifice = 0.188" (4.8 mm)
Three-way HB4X: Cv = 0.62; xT = 0.71; Orifice = 0.188" (4.8 mm)
Tested in accordance with ISA S75.02. Gas flow will be choked
when P1 - P2 / P1 = xT .
Testing
Standard production testing - valves are 100% factory
tested with nitrogen at 1,000 psig (69 bar) for leakage at
the seats and body seals. Both areas are required to have
less than 0.1 SCCM leakage. Optional testing is available
upon request. Consult your authorized Parker Instrumentation
Distributor or the factory for further information.

Flow configurations are two-way (HB4L) and three-way (HB4X); Seat materials are PEEK (Polyetheretherketone) and PCTFE
(Polychlorotrifluoroethylene).
** Designed with shorter end-to-end dimensions than the 4FL model to save space.
† Reduced pressure rating is determined by the maximum rated pressure of the tubing as stated in the Parker Instrument Tubing Selection
Guide Bulletin 4200-TS. The working pressure ratings are limited by the seat material (PCTFE - 6,000 psig (414 bar) maximum and
PEEK - 10,000 psig (689 bar) maximum) and the temperature of the application.
†† For CPITM and A-LOK® , dimensions are measured with nuts in the finger tight position.

How to Order Options
Lock-Out Devices - Add the suffix -LD to the end of the part number to order directly on the valve.
Example: 2F-HB4LPKR-BN-SSP-LD. For field installation, simply substitute the correct valve series number after LD.
Example: LD-HB4L
Colored Handles - Add the designator corresponding to the correct handle as a suffix to the part number: W - white,
B - blue, G - green, R - red, Y - yellow. Example: M6A-HB4XPKR-SSP-G
Oxygen Cleaning - Add the suffix -C3 to the end of the part number to receive valves cleaned and assembled for oxygen
service in accordance with Parker Specification ES8003. Example: 4A-HB4LPKR-EPR-SSP-C3
Pneumatic Actuators - For detailed actuator information, refer to Catalog 4123-PA. For factory assembly, add the actuator
part number as the suffix to the valve part number. Example: 4FL-HB4XK-SSP-61ACX-2. For field installation, specify the
actuator desired. Example: 61ACX-2. The appropriate mounting hardware may be obtained by adding the valve series and
actuator size to the prefix MK-. Example: MK-HB4X-61
Electric Actuators - For detailed actuator information, refer to Catalog 4123-EA. For factory assembly, add the actuator
part number as the suffix to the valve part number. Example: 6A-HB4XPKR-SSP-71XA. For field installation, specify the
actuator desired. Example: 71XA. The appropriate mounting hardware may be obtained by adding the valve series and
actuator series to the prefix MK-. Example: MK-HB4X-70
How to Order Maintenance Kits
Handle Kits: HB4-Handle-Color. Example: HB4-HANDLE-RED (Consists of a red handle and handle screw).
Two-way Seal Kits: KIT-HB4LPKR or KIT-HB4LK (Consists of a two-way ball, springs, stem washers and stem seal, backup ring, end connector seals, seat retainer seals, seat retainer back-up rings, and seat assemblies).
Three-way Seal Kits: KIT-HB4XPKR or KIT-HB4XK (Consists of a three-way ball, springs, stem washers and stem seal,
back-up ring, end connector seals, seat retainer seals, seat retainer back-up rings, and seat assemblies).
