The ball valve is a valve that uses a ball with a circular channel as the opening and closing part, and the ball rotates with the valve stem to realize the opening and closing action. The opening and closing part of the ball valve is a ball with a hole, which rotates around the axis perpendicular to the channel, so as to achieve the purpose of opening and closing the channel. Ball valves are mainly used to open and close pipelines and equipment media.How High Pressure Floating Ball Valves Work .
1. It has the same action of rotating 90 degrees, the difference is that the cock body is a sphere with a circular hole or channel 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 be rotated 90 degrees and a small torque can be closed tightly. The ball valve is most suitable for use as a switch and shut-off valve, but the recent development has designed the ball valve to make it have the purpose of throttling and controlling the flow, such as the V-shaped ball valve.
2. The main features are its compact structure, reliable sealing, simple structure, and convenient maintenance. The sealing surface and spherical surface are often in a closed state, which is not easy to be eroded by the medium and is easy to operate and maintain. It is suitable for general work such as water, solvent, acid, and natural gas. It is also suitable for mediums with harsh working conditions, such as oxygen, hydrogen peroxide, methane, ethylene, etc., and is widely used in various industries. The ball valve body can be integral or combined.
