Our range of ball valves, in all sizes
Ball valves are a type of valve commonly used in compressed air systems to control the flow of compressed air. At Compressed Air Systems UK we provide ball valves that are in design, reliable, and easy to operate, making them an ideal choice for many industrial applications.
How do they work?
A ball valve consists of a hollow sphere or ball with a hole in the centre, which can be rotated to control the flow of fluid through the valve. When the ball is turned so that the hole is aligned with the flow path, fluid can flow through the valve. When the ball is rotated so that the hole is perpendicular to the flow path, the flow is stopped.
Ball valves are popular in compressed air systems because they are able to handle high pressures and can be used in a wide range of temperatures. They are also resistant to corrosion, making them a good choice for systems that are exposed to harsh environments.
Another advantage of ball valves is that they are very easy to operate. The simple design of the valve means that they can be turned on or off with just a quarter-turn of the handle. This makes them a good choice for systems that require frequent operation or maintenance.
There are several different types of ball valves that are offered at Compressed Air Systems UK. The most common type is a full port ball valve, which has a large opening that allows for maximum flow through the valve. This type of valve is ideal for systems that require high flow rates.
Another type of ball valve we provide is the port ball valve. This type of valve has a smaller opening than a full port valve, which means that it can restrict the flow of fluid through the system. This type of valve is ideal for systems that require more precise control over the flow of compressed air.
Ball valves can also be made from a variety of different materials, including brass, stainless steel, and PVC. The material that is used to make the valve will depend on the specific application and the conditions that the valve will be exposed to.
