What is the ball valve
A ball valve is a device that regulates the flow of fluids (gas, fluidized solids, slurries or liquids) by opening, closing or partially blocking various passages. Most valves are used in hydraulic installations, sewage treatment, oil and gas, dairy, beer, chemical and more.
Ball valves are durable and often provide tight shutoff even after years of inactivity. Therefore, they are an excellent choice for shutdown applications.
