    Comparison between floating ball valve and Trunnion ball valve

    What is a ball valve? A ball valve is a one-way valve that is opened and closed by pressure on a ball which fits into a cup-shaped opening. Generally, a ball valve has two entries, but there is also 3-way ball valve, as shown below. A 3-way ball valve has three entries. It may have an L or a T design as shown in the picture below. Depending on your own requirement, you can arrange the entries of the 3-way ball valve in the following three-way. 1. One inlet and two distribute 2. One inlet and one outlet with diverting a flow 3. Straight pass the fluid without No inlet…

    Seven tips to help you better maintain your valves

    The valve is a control component in the fluid delivery system. It has functions such as cut-off, regulation, diversion, prevention of backflow, shunting or overflow relief. Valves can be used to control the flow of various types of fluids such as air, water, steam, various corrosive media, mud, oil, liquid metals and radioactive media, and are widely used in our daily life as well as various industries. In order to extend the service life of the valve, we need to do a good job in the storage of the valve. Next, Adamant Valves will tell you how to keep the valve. The purpose of good storage of the valve is…

    Why is it called “butterfly valve”?

    Among all types of valves, there is a particular one with the most beautiful name—the butterfly valve. How did the name come from? In answering this question, we could use analogy. For example, the ball valve looks like a ball, so can we guess that the butterfly valve looks like a butterfly? Well, it seems a little funny, but I have to say: “Bingo, right answer!”   The butterfly valve is a regulating valve with simple structure, and it can be used for switching control of a low pressure pipeline medium. The opening and closing member (valve or disc) of the butterfly valve is a disc that rotates around the…

    What are Ball Valves? Working Principle, Advantages and Precautions for Use.

    Ball valves are a common type of valve in life and are mainly used for fluid regulation and control. According to the working conditions, ball valves can be equipped with different driving devices to form a variety of different control methods, such as electric ball valves, pneumatic ball valves, hydraulic ball valves, and the like. Working principle: The Ball valve uses a hollow, perforated and pivoting ball to control flow through it. The ball valve drives the valve handle to rotate by a transmission, which in turn drives the ball to rotate about an axis perpendicular to the flow. It is open when the ball’s hole is in line with…
