Ball valve, gas valve. Efficient, durable, and precise control. Tailored for industrial applications, provide optimized process solutions, and reduce operating costs. Rapid customization service, global certification, and support for urgent needs.

The ball valve regulates fluid flow. It operates by opening or closing fluid passages with a rotating ball containing a hole. The ball valve is characterized by its simple structure and good sealing. It is easy to operate by opening or closing with a 90-degree rotation, and minimal fluid resistance. This makes the ball valve widely used in controlling the flow of water, steam, oil, gas, and some corrosive media.

The ball valve can be classified into straight-through, three-way, and four-way types based on the direction of its passages. It can also be sorted according to its control mechanisms. Including manual operation, pneumatic drive, and electric drive, among others. Due to its reliable sealing and long service life, gas valve is extensively utilized in many industrial process control systems.
