The birth and application of ball valves
- Jul 25, 2018 -

Ball valves were introduced in the 1950s. With the rapid development of science and technology, the continuous improvement of production technology and product structure has rapidly developed into a major valve category in just 40 years. In countries with developed western industries, the use of ball valves is increasing year by year. In China, ball valves are widely used in petroleum refining, long-distance pipelines, chemical, paper, pharmaceutical, water conservancy, electric power, municipal, steel and other industries. The national economy occupies a pivotal position.

The ball valve has a motion of 90 degrees of rotation, the body of the plug is a sphere, with a circular through hole or passage through its axis. The ball valve is mainly used in the pipeline to cut, distribute and change the flow direction of the medium. It only needs to be rotated 90 degrees and the torque can be closed tightly. Ball valves are best suited for use as switching and shut-off valves, but recent developments have designed ball valves to provide throttling and control flow, such as V-ball valves.
