Function of Ball Valve


Diverse types of ball valves such as High Pressure Ball Valves, Fire Safe Ball Valves, Alloy-20 Ball Valves and API 6D Ball Valve are used in the different industries. Although they are meant for different specific applications or working conditions, ball valves are mainly used in the industries to control the flow of fluids that flow via pipelines.

This valve has a ball shaped disc which has an opening point in its centre. When the valve is opened, the opening point aligns with the end of the valve and thus the fluid is allowed to flow. When the valve shuts off, the opening misaligns with the end of the valve and the flow of fluid is blocked. And thereby the valves shut-off and open the passage of the flow of fluids.
