- Boron Trifluoride -

Boron trifluoride (BF3) is a chemical compound of boron (B) and fluorine (F).

It is mainly used as a catalyst for organic synthesis reactions and as a Lewis acid, because it can accept electron pairs from other molecules, making it an important reagent in several chemical reactions. It is also used in the semiconductor industry and in the production of optical fibers.

BF3 service comes with some challenges as corrosion, toxicity and high reactivity.

Vinco ball valves are designed to operate in BF3 service to ensure safely handling, high levels of tightness and selecting compatible and resistant materials to ensure high chemical compatibility.
