Precision glass balls are offered with superior corrosion and chemical absorption resistance making them ideal for applications in medical equipment. Precision balls made from glass are approximately one third the weight of those made from stainless steel and can usually be purchased at a lower cost. In medical applications such as intravenous administration products, resistance to chemical or biological elements is critical and since the metering balls are not subjected to high loads, the use of lower cost glass balls such as those made from soda-lime is ideal.
