Ball valve, a device with a spherical closure unit which uses a hollow that perforated and pivoting ball to control flow through it. It's open once the ball's hole is in line with the flow and closed once it's pivoted 90-degrees by the valve handle. Rising demand for high-quality ball valves to mitigate the threat of contamination in essential processes, including water and steam handling in food & beverages and chemicals industries are driving the growth of the ball valve market across the globe.
Ball valves can be used in a variety of applications and markets, such as transmission and storage, gas processing, industrial, and many more. Ball valves even provide reliable leak protection which is especially beneficial in gas applications. Ball valves have low pressure drop and can open and close quickly.
A variety of construction materials, trim options and designs make these valves extremely versatile. Ball valves, such as subsea ball valves, are commonly utilized in subsea applications on manifolds that require long service life at high pressures. Ball valves also are used in cryogenic applications where compressed gas must be kept at a stable temperature in order to be moved efficiently.
