Bronze Ball Valves and Carbon Steel Ball Valves

Bronze Ball Valves / Carbon Steel Ball Valves

What are Ball Valves?

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, the flow will take place. When the valve is closed, the hole is perpendicular to the ends of the valve, and flow is blocked. The handle or lever will be inline with the port position letting you observe the position of the valve.

Ball valves are very durable and usually work to achieve perfect shutoff even after many years of using or not using. They are therefore an excellent choice for shutoff applications. Ball valves are used extensively in industrial applications because they are very versatile, supporting pressures up to 1000 bars and temperatures up to 200°C. Sizes typically range from 0.5 cm to 30 cm. They are easy to repair and operate.
