Ball valve

Ball valves are quarter-turn valves and straight-through valves that have a round closure element with matching rounded seats that permit uniform sealing stress and, as such, are valued within the oil and gas industry. It is a type of valve which uses a hollow, perforated and pivoting ball designed for efficient opening and closing due to the ball that rotates to open and close the valve. Ball valves are used in situations where a tight shut-off is required. Ball valves are wide duty type valves that are able to transfer gases, liquids and liquids with suspended solids (slurries).
