Products/Services for Ball Valve Diagram

  • Ball Valves-Image
    Ball Valves - (2068 companies)
    Ball valves are quarter-turn, straight-through valves that have a round closure element with matching rounded seats that permit uniform sealing stress. The valve gets its name from the ball that rotates to open and close... Search by Specification | Learn More
  • Ball Bearings-Image
    Ball Bearings - (701 companies)
    Ball bearings are used to provide smooth, low friction motion in rotary applications. Ball bearings types include radial ball bearings (deep groove and angular contact) and thrust ball bearings. Description. Ball bearings are used to provide smooth... Search by Specification | Learn More
  • Solenoid Valves-Image
    Solenoid Valves - (990 companies)
    Solenoid valves are devices that use a solenoid to control valve activation. They are considered electromechanical control devices used to control liquid or gas flow. An electrical current runs through a coil to control the valve by moving a plunger... Search by Specification | Learn More
  • Valve Actuators-Image
    Valve Actuators - (878 companies)
    ...motion and operation style are important specifications to consider when selecting valve actuators. Valve Method of Control. Rotary motion valves (rotary valves) such as ball, plug, and butterfly valves rotate a quarter-turn or more from open to close... Search by Specification | Learn More
  • Butterfly Valves-Image
    Butterfly Valves - (1236 companies) flow. These valves offer a rotary stem movement of 90 degrees or less, in a compact design. Unlike ball valves, butterfly valves do not have any pockets in which fluids may become trapped when the valve is closed. The valve operation time is short... Search by Specification | Learn More

    Gas Valves - (513 companies)
    Gas valves are used to handle and control the flow of gaseous media such as liquefied petroleum and natural gas. They are made of metal or plastic and vary in terms of valve size, pressure rating, number of ports, and flow. Connection types consist... Search by Specification | Learn More

    Check Valves - (1934 companies)
    The mechanics of check valve operation are relatively simple. Most check valves contain a ball that sits freely above the seat, which has only one through-hole. The ball has a slightly larger diameter than that of the through-hole. When the pressure behind...

    Globe Valves - (773 companies)
    ...ball valves have the highest rangeability at 200:1, while globe valves have a high rangeability of 100:1. Higher rangeability usually indicates the sensitivity is lower when the closing element is near closed and increases as the valve opens. Flow Rate... Search by Specification | Learn More

Although the vast majority of ball valves are simple 2-port valves, there is a market for multi-port valves too. In certain types of industrial application they offer advantages over the straight 2-port products....

RuB ball valve styles which use teflon stem seals (s.40, 42, 70, and 92) are rated at 150 psi WSP (Working Steam Pressure). But our valve styles which have FPM (like DuPont Viton (R)) stem seals (the s64 or s95 for example) cannot be consistently satisfactory at 150 WSP without some restrictions...

One of the key advantages of a ball valve over older types (such as conical plug valves, which are the traditional valve used for gas meter sets) is that the ball valve seals absolutely bubble-tight without any sealant or lubricant being required. The reason for this is that the geometry of a ball...

RuB standard ball valves are excellent for vacuum service. They can be used for vacuums down to .0008 inches of mercury. A pretty low pressure! Not exactly outer space, but getting close!...

RuB ball valves are approved under several different specs, each of which requires us to put certain markings on the valve....

RuB ball valves have a unique feature which gives them substantial performance advantages over many other ball valves. The lip portion of the teflon (R) seats in all RuB ball valves is free to flex. The seats act as springs, which can absorb variations in temperature or pressure....

A major utility approached Superbolt about using their Multi-Jackbolt Tensioners to reduce down-time on their large Ball Valve. Previously they used a hydraulic bolting method. The estiamted time savings was 2-3 days with the Superbolt Tensioners, and an estimated 5 million dollars (US) was saved...

High performance new steam jacketed ball valve was tailored to customer's demand with Linuo's strong R&D capability. Comparing with the conventional steam jacketed ball valve showing disadvantages of subjecting to clogging and constraint for long term service for applications with temperature...

A leading dye plant and Assured Automation collaborated to solve a problem in evacuating water from commercial washing machines. By installing Assured Automation's 4000 Series Flanged Ball Valve with its full port to allow more water to flow, they were able to achieve faster water evacuation...

For more than four decades, Worcester Controls Corporation has been on the leading edge of ball valve and flow control technology. The Marlborough (Mass.) company has always prided itself on making and selling state-of-the-art products of the highest quality. So Worcester was seriously concerned...
