    What is brass ball valves?

    2023/5/16      view:

    Valve is a device for controlling the passage of fluid or air through a pipe, duct, etc., especially an automatic device allowing movement in one direction only.There are mainly four types of valves

    Isolation Valves: Ball, butterfly, diaphragm, gate, pinch, piston, and plug valves.

    Regulation Valves: Ball, butterfly, diaphragm, globe, needle, pinch, and plug valves.

    Safety Relief Valves: Pressure release and vacuum relief valves.

    Non-Return Valves: Swing check and lift check valves.


    And the material can be different, like brass, stainless steel, PVC, bronze, etc..


    This passage will mainly introduce brass ball valves, including the concept of brass ball valves and the advantage of brass ball valves.


    What is brass ball valves?

    Brass ball valves are valves that use a ball to control the flow of water. There is a hole in the ball for water to flow through when the valve is opened. When the valve is closed, the hole is sealed and no water can flow through it. Brass ball valves are used in many fields, including plumbing, pipe transportation, HVAC and industrial applications.


    Brass ball valves have several advantages over other types of valves. They are more durable than PVC ball valves and can withstand higher temperatures than most other types of valves. Because of their design, they also have special closing forces, which help ensure that the fluid stops quickly after the handle is rotated back to its original position. Brass ball valves also do not require any packaging or sealants for their seat surfaces, which means they last longer and do not require maintenance or repair work.


    Advantages of brass ball valves.

    1. It’s durable. An alloy of copper and zinc, brass has long been used in both homes and for industrial plumbing because it is resilient and retains its condition for years.


    2. It can withstand high temperatures. If you’re distributing hot water, brass has excellent conductivity and ductility in high temperatures. It is also fire resistant.


    3. If you want versatility, brass offers it. You can get brass ball valves in so many shapes and sizes and finishes. This means you can take on any plumbing job and if you need to fit very specific sizes.


    4. It resists corrosion. Brass is one of the metals that is highly resistant to corrosion and it just won’t rust. Since corrosion and rust cause wear and tear, brass ball valves can resistant to corrosion.


        All in all, Brass ball valves are solid and durable. They can withstand high temperatures and pressures and are not susceptible to corrosion. Brass ball valves are also easy to clean and maintain. They're a good choice for applications requiring a tight seal, such as in plumbing or water lines.
