Ball Valve is a valve or valve with a flow controller in the shape of a round disc (like a ball / hemisphere). The ball has a hole, which is in the middle so that when the hole is in a straight line or in line with the two ends of the valve / valve, flow will occur.
But when the valve is closed, the position of the orifice is perpendicular to the end of the valve, then the flow will be blocked or closed.
Ball valves are widely used because of their ease of repair and ability to withstand high pressures and temperatures. Depending on what material they are made of, Bal Valves can withstand pressures of up to 10,000 Psi and temperatures around 200 degrees Celsius.
Ball valves are used widely in industrial applications because they are extremely versatile, can withstand pressures up to 1000 barr and temperatures up to 482 ° F (250 ° C).
