Safety ball valve information

Post by sophia11 on Wed Jan 26, 2011 4:22 pm

A ball valve is a valve with a spherical disc, the part of the valve which controls the flow through it. The sphere has a hole, or port, through the middle so that when the port is in line with both ends of the valve, flow will occur. When the valve is closed, the hole is perpendicular to the ends of the valve, and flow is blocked.

Safety ball valve has outstanding security. And safety ball valve is durable and usually works to achieve perfect shutoff even after years of disuse. It is therefore an excellent choice for shutoff applications. It does not offer the fine control that may be necessary in throttling applications but is sometimes used for this purpose. The body of safety ball valve is made of metal, plastic or metal with a ceramic center. The ball is often chrome plated to make it more durable.
