A ball valve is a valve in which the opening and closing parts (ball) are driven by the valve stem and rotate around the axis of the ball valve. It can also be used for fluid adjustment and control.
Ball valves are divided into pneumatic ball valves, electric ball valves, and manual ball valves according to the driving mode. In China, ball valves are widely used in petroleum refining, long-distance pipelines, chemicals, papermaking, pharmaceuticals, water conservancy, electric power, municipal administration, steel and other industries.
Product description of ball valve:
Ball valve came out in the 1950s. With the rapid development of science and technology, the continuous improvement of production technology and product structure, in just 40 years, it has rapidly developed into a major valve category. In developed western countries, the use of ball valves is increasing year by year.
In my country, ball valves are widely used in petroleum refining, long-distance pipelines, chemicals, papermaking, pharmaceuticals, water conservancy, electric power, municipal administration, steel and other industries, and occupy a pivotal position in the national economy. It has the action of rotating 90 degrees, and the cock body is a sphere with a circular through hole or channel passing through its axis.
The ball valve is mainly used to cut off, distribute and change the flow direction of the medium in the pipeline. It only needs to rotate 90 degrees and a small torque to close tightly. The ball valve is most suitable for use as a switch and shut-off valve, V-shaped ball valve. In addition to paying attention to pipeline parameters, electric valves should also pay special attention to the environmental conditions in which they are used. Since the electric device in the electric valve is an electromechanical device, its use status is greatly affected by its use environment. Under normal conditions, special attention should be paid to the use of electric ball valves and butterfly valves in the following environments.
Tianjin Tanghai Valve Manufacturing Co., Ltd. is one of the largest ball valve manufacturers in China, main products are butterfly valves, check valves, gate valve and globe valves. Key words: butterfly valve, lug type butterfly valve, wafer type butterfly valve, U-type butterfly valve, double flange butterfly valve, gate valves, check valves, globe valves, valve parts (Valve body, Valve disc, Valve shaft, Valve seat…)
