Good Properties of Sanitary 3-Way Ball Valve

The main function of the Sanitary 3-way Ball Valve is to cut off and connect the fluid in the pipe. They have the characteristics of small fluid resistance, good sealing, quick switch and high reliability. As for the good properties, STRENGTH and SEAL are the two main performances of sanitary ball valves.

Strength Properties

The STRENGTH of a sanitary ball valve refers to the amount of pressure it can withstand during the operation. Valves are mechanical products that are subject to internal pressure, so they must have sufficient strength and rigidity to ensure long-term use without cracking or deformation.

Sealing Performance

Sealability is the most critical technical performance of the valve, and it relates to the sealing ability of all sealing elements of the valve. A tightly sealed valve can reduce media leakage.

Usually, a valve has 3 sealing elements: 1)  the contact between the outlet and closing components and the sealing cover of the valve seat; 2) the matching between packing and stem and stuffing container; and 3)  the relationship among the valve body and the cover. The leak in these sealing elements is called an internal leak, that’s frequently referred to as a loose closure and influences the valve’s potential to cut off the medium. The leaks in which the medium leaks from the internal to the out of doors of the valve are called leakage. Leakage may cause cloth loss and environmental pollutants, and etc. For inflammable, explosive, poisonous or radioactive media, leakage is never allowed because it would cause extreme injuries, so the valve has to have reliable sealing performance. Here sanitary 3-way ball valve is a good choice.

Sanitary Ball Valve Installation

*During the construction, the construction contractor, the safety department, the factory production department and the construction unit shall fully coordinate to clarify the scope of responsibility for the operation;

*The full-time responsible person shall work on the site in the respective work responsibility area;

*When removing or installing sanitary valves, make changes and arrangements for daily production within a certain range affected by this operation, then remove and cut off the medium in the pipe;

*Support to fit the weight of the sanitary valve should be provided at the work site to prevent the sanitary valve from sinking and the center of the piping;

*After the completion of the work, the company should prepare for the pressure test, airtightness test, non-destructive inspection and other inspection items;

*Before entering the production operation at the end of the operation, the inner cleaning of the pipe network should be carried out, the removal of the blind plate on the pipe should be confirmed, and the operated valve should be restored to the open and close state before construction.
