    An Overview of Sanitary Ball Valve

    Sanitary ball valves are also called as hygienic ball valve which is opened by turning handles attached to balls inside the valves. The ball has a hole or port through the middle. 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. A ball valve is durable and usually work to achieve perfect shutoff even after years of disuse. Working Principle of Sanitary Ball Valve The Ball valve uses a hollow, perforated and pivoting ball to control flow through it. The ball valve drives the valve handle to…

    Classification of Ball Valves by Their Structural Types

    Floating ball valve The sphere of the ball valve floats. Under the effect of medium pressure, the sphere can produce a certain displacement and be pressed tight on the sealing surface at the outlet, ensuring the sealing of the outlet. The floating ball valve has a simple structure and good sealing, but a load of working medium sustained by the sphere is all passed on to the outlet sealing ring. Therefore, one needs to consider if the material of the sealing ring can sustain the working load of the sphere medium. This structure is widely used in medium and low-pressure ball valves. Fixed ball valve The sphere of the ball…

    Similarities and Differences Between Metal Sealing Valve and Sanitary Ball Valve

    The movement path of the metal sealing valve has the characteristics of both gate valve (multi-turn) and sanitary ball valve (90-degree turn), so its performance has the advantages of both gate valve and ball valve. The structures of the metal sealing valves and sanitary ball valves have similarities and differences, as is discussed below. Similarities: 1. Both of the metal sealing valve and sanitary ball valve can achieve metal sealing and endure high temperature. 2. They share the same way of operation. They can be operated by hand wheel or bevel gear box. 3. They share the same way of valve stem action. Lift first to make the valve flap…

    Difference in Application Between Sanitary Ball Valves and Sanitary Plug Valves

    The sanitary ball valve was introduced in the 1950s and has rapidly developed into a major valve category. In industrially developed countries, the use of ball valves is increasing year by year. It is widely used in the chemical, paper, pharmaceutical, water conservancy, electric power, municipal, steel and other industries. The cock of the ball valve is a sphere that can be rotated 90 degrees. It has a circular through-hole or passage through its axis. The ball valve is mainly used in the pipeline to cut, distribute and change the flow direction of the medium. The ball valve is most suitable for use as a switch or shut-off valve. When…

    4 Metrics for the Quality of Sanitary Pneumatic Ball Valves

    The switch control of the Sanitary Pneumatic Ball Valves is a top priority. This affects a series of production of sanitary valve production and transportation. The valve should be sealed and pressure tested. If the valve switch can be used normally, and there is no leakage during the pressure test, the valve is qualified. The valve is the control component of the fluid line. The body, disc and sealing surface of the valve need to meet the corresponding requirements in order to avoid corrosion. Generally speaking, the requirements for valve strength are mainly considered from the various conditions of temperature, corrosivity and pressure of the medium. When the valve is…
