Ball Valve

August 4, 2009



Ball valves are used to control the flow of either air, gas, water or other fluids. Fitted with a ported ball, flow is controlled as the port is aligned with or diverted from the inlet and outlet of the valve body. Usually controlled by a liner handle, the valve typically requires a single-quarter turn to become either fully opened or fully closed.
