Ball valves are quarter turn on/off devices. A rotating ball in the center of the valve controls the flow of liquid or gaseous media. A spinning ball is called a spinning ball, and it is designed with a hole (hole) in its center. A stem on top of the ball rotates the ball to open or close the valve. The valve stem can be turned using a manual lever or an automated device. The most common materials for ball valves include steel, iron, brass, bronze or PVC. How does a ball valve work? Ball valves can have multiple ports, which are openings in the valve. Two-way ball valves have two ports for traditional on/off control. Multi-way valves (3-way, 4-way, etc.) are used in applications that require multiple media sources or where media needs to be diverted in different directions. The ports of the ball valve can be opened or closed to control the media manually or by actuation. Manual options require a handle or lever and an operator to control the valve. Electric, hydraulic and pneumatic actuation do not require an operator to control the valve. The drives are ideal for complex control systems or those located in remote locations where operators do not have easy access. Applications using ball valves From the home to the professional industry, ball valves are everywhere. Here are a few examples: Home application: washing machine outdoor hose dishwasher Featured industries: Petroleum and natural gas Food and Beverage Equipment car car wash system power handling pharmaceutical Chemical Additives and Treatments Irrigation and Water Treatment Equipment manufacturing facility
