THE ORIGINAL INNOVATOR OF THE PIPELINE SPHERE
Elite Spheres are specially designed and compounded for optimum resiliency, wear-resistance and long life, evidenced by our thick wall construction. Elite Spheres are compression-molded at cavity pressure exceeding 2000 PSI. We do not pour-cast nor rotational-mold any of our spheres. The compression molding process is critical to ensuring a uniform density of the compounded material and to yield a wear-life that is unmatched in the industry!
During sphere production, each molded hemisphere is subjected to an intensive physical inspection. Following assembly and post-curing, every sphere is inflated to a specified increased diameter for 24 hours. This critical step is taken to assure that every Elite Sphere that leaves our factory will fulfill the exacting demands of the task for which it was designed. Inflatable spheres are available in 4″ sizes and larger. Solid spheres are available from 1-1/2″ through 4″ diameters in all materials. Limited larger solid spheres are available in polyurethane materials only.
