Ball valves are flow control devices characterized by hollow, perforated, pivoting balls that control liquid flowing through them. When the hole of the ball is aligned with the flow inlet, it is open. When it is rotated 90 degrees by the handle, it becomes closed. Ball valves are Industrial Equipment used to throttle vapors and gases in a wide range of hydrocarbon processing applications and are particularly suitable for applications with low flow rates.
You can find companies offering ball valves for sale in Linquip, along with their contact details.
Replacement of the packing washer is the only repair for a ball valve. A leaking valve is caused by a deteriorated ball on the valve. In this case, the whole valve must be replaced.
The ball valve is commonly used for shut-offs and controlling applications. An average water shut-off valve costs $34.77, ranging from $32.53 to $37.00. Labor and materials per valve come to $190.92, ranging from $173.71 to $208.13.
When choosing a ball valve fitting, you should consider some factors, such as:
A ball valve's size is usually determined by the process engineering requirements of your operation. Ball valves are typically selected based on the flow rate required. It makes sense to start with a larger bore since the larger bore means a better flow rate, particularly if your ball valve will go in with the new assembly. Linquip has Ball Valve Experts who can help you select a ball valve. They can guide you through the selection process.
