James Duva, Inc. supplies ball valves as well as most of your piping needs. These units are durable and can be used in high pressure applications.
A ball valve is a variation of a quarter-turn valve that utilizes a ball with a hole through it, which opens and closes the valve based on the direction it is facing. The handle lies flat in alignment when open, and is perpendicular to it when closed. It works best when the flow needs to be shut off completely, such as in the main water line in a house.
Ball valves can be found in five different body styles to meet your project’s needs: single body, three-piece body, split body, top entry, and welded. The primary difference between the body styles are how the pieces of the valve are constructed and put together – this also pertains to the casing that contains the ball itself.
Ball Valves Are Strong & Reliable
Ball valves are designed to support your most extreme applications. The are quite durable and reliable – performing after repeated cycles as well as continuing to close securely after long periods of not being in use. Ideal applications for ball valves include shut off and controls. They are often more suitable to gates and globe valves.
Ball valves are easy to use, fix and maintain, and are relatively versatile and can even be used in industrial applications. They are able to support pressure of up to 1,000 bar and temperatures of up to 752 degrees Fahrenheit (or 400 degrees Celsius). Ball valves tend to range in size to suit various projects’ needs – but most times they range from 0.2 to 48 inches and are made up of durable materials, such as metal, plastic, or ceramic. The floating balls are often chrome plated for increased durability.
