Not a simple plastic ball valve

Ball valves are often called open and close valves, but do you really know? It has the effect of rotating 90 degrees. A plug body is a sphere with a circular hole or channel through its axis. In our country, ball valves are widely used in oil refining, long distance pipeline, chemical industry, paper making, pharmaceutical, water conservancy, electric power, municipal, steel and other industries, occupies an important position in the national economy. This paper mainly introduces some features of plastic ball valves and the main points of installation and construction.

Basic performance
Plastic ball valve is mainly used to cut off or connect the medium in the pipeline, special form can be used for fluid regulation and control. Compared with other valves, the ball valve has the characteristics of simple structure, small volume, light weight, less material consumption, small installation size, fast switching, 90° reciprocating rotation, small driving torque and so on. It has good fluid control characteristics and sealing performance.

In recent years, according to the requirements of anti-corrosion and acid and alkali in different industries, a variety of plastic valves have been developed with excellent performance. UPVC ball valve as an example, compared with the metal ball valve, the valve body light weight, strong corrosion resistance, compact appearance, light weight, easy installation, strong corrosion resistance, wide range of application, material health non-toxic, wear-resistant, easy to disassemble, easy to use and maintain. In addition to UPVC plastic material, plastic ball valve also has FRPP, PVDF, PPH, CPVC, etc., its structure form is mainly socket, spiral flange, etc. Our company has a variety of forms and specifications of valves to choose from.

Install and use
Construction and installation points: 1. Import and export installation position, height, direction must meet the design requirements, the connection is firm, tight. 2. Handle of all kinds of manual valves installed on insulation pipes shall not be downward. 3. Install gaskets between valve flanges and pipe flanges according to piping design requirements. Four. Before valve installation, a visual inspection must be performed to confirm that the valve is being pressure tested by the manufacturer.

Plastic ball valve as an integral ball valve, leakage point less, high strength, connecting the ball valve installation and disassembly convenient. Installation and use of ball valve: when the flange at both ends is connected with the pipe, the bolts should be tightened evenly to prevent flange deformation and leakage. Turn the handle clockwise to close, otherwise open. Ordinary ball valves can only be used to cut off and pass the flow, not for flow regulation. Liquids containing hard particles tend to scratch the surface of the ball. Here, we need to explain why normal ball valves are not suitable for flow regulation, because if the valve is partially open for long periods of time, the life of the valve will be reduced. The reasons are as follows: 1. Valve seals can be damaged. The ball will be damaged; 3. Flow rate adjustment is not accurate. If the pipe is a high temperature pipe, it is easy to cause eccentricity
