Ball Valves

Ball Valves

Ball valves are a type of valve that is widely used in various industries and applications due to their durability and reliable performance. They are designed with a spherical disc, known as a ball, which controls the flow of fluid through the valve. When the ball's hole or port is in line with both ends of the valve, flow occurs, and when the valve is closed, the hole is perpendicular to the ends, blocking the flow.

One of the notable features of ball valves is their ease of use and visual indication of the valve's position. The handle or lever is inline with the port position, allowing users to easily see whether the valve is open or closed. This design makes ball valves ideal for shutoff applications, where achieving a perfect shutoff is essential. Even after years of disuse, ball valves continue to offer reliable performance.

While ball valves are primarily used for shutoff applications, they may also be used for throttling purposes, although they do not provide the fine control required in such applications. However, they can still be a suitable choice in certain cases.

The ball valves available in this category offer a range of options to meet various needs. Some examples include water ball valves with different pressure ratings, sizes, and male to male connectors, water valves with butterfly handles and nickel-plated brass construction, and brass compression pipe fittings. There are also ball valves with integrated check non-return valves for added convenience and efficiency. Users can choose from different sizes and types of ball valves, including lever type inline ball valves, quarter turn handle ball valves, and angled shut-off ball valves.

In summary, ball valves are sturdy and reliable valves that are widely used for shutoff applications. They provide visual indication of valve position and are built to last, making them a preferred choice in industries where durability and performance are vital. With a variety of options available, users can find the right ball valve to suit their specific needs in this category.
