Ball valves are widely used in modern piping systems in a number of industries. They are a form of quarter-turn valves that utilize hollow, pivoting and perforated balls for controlling the flow of fluids through it. These integral valves are primarily used to start, stop, control, direct and mix the flow, pressure and temperature of a process fluid inside a pipeline. The system is open when the hole of the ball is parallel to the flow of fluid. It is closed when the hole is pivoted at an angle of 90 degrees by the handle of the valve. In other words, the valve handle is aligned parallel when fluid flows through the system and perpendicularly when there is no flow of fluid. This makes visual confirmation of the fluid easy.
A type of steel that possesses high resistivity to corrosion is known as Stainless Steel. A protective coating due to the formation of a passive oxide film allows the steel to repair itself. An increase in chromium content and the level of molybdenum increases the resistive property of the protective layer. Typically, the standard alloys of stainless steel that is applicable for piping contain 17-18% chromium and 8-12% nickel. Stainless steel 316 ball valves are highly durable, reliable, and capable of performing well after a number of cycles and closing in a secure manner, even after longer periods of disuse. These features of SS Ball valves make them an excellent choice for control and shutoff applications.
