Advantages and Structural Characteristics of Flanged Ball Valves

1. What are the advantages of flanged ball valves?

Flanged ball valve is a relatively new type of ball valve, and its own structure has some unique advantages, such as no friction to the switch, small wear on the seal, and small opening and closing torque.

The flanged ball valve is equipped with a multi-turn electric actuator, and the medium can be adjusted. It is widely used in petroleum, chemical industry, urban water supply and drainage, etc. Ball valve and gate valve belong to the same type of valve, the difference is that the closing part of the flanged ball valve is a sphere, which rotates around the center line of the valve body to open and close.

Ball valves are mainly used to cut off, distribute and change the flow direction of the medium in the pipeline. A flanged ball valve is defined as a valve whose opening and closing member (ball) is driven by a valve stem and rotates around the stem axis.

The ball valve flange type and gate valve belong to the same type of valve, the difference is that its closing part is a ball that rotates around the centerline of the valve body to open and close.

The three-piece ball valve is a new type of valve that has been widely used in recent years. The ball valve is mainly used to cut off, distribute and change the flow direction of the medium in the pipeline. The V-shaped opening ball valve also has a good flow adjustment function.

Flanged ball valve has the following advantages:

1. The fluid resistance is small, and its resistance coefficient is equal to the resistance coefficient of the pipe section of the same length.

2. Simple structure, small size and light weight.

3. Tight and reliable. At present, the sealing surface material of flange type valve is widely made of plastic with good sealing performance, and it is also widely used in vacuum system.

4. Easy to operate, quick to open and close, just rotate 90° from fully open to fully closed, which is convenient for remote control.

5. Easy maintenance, simple structure of ball valve, generally movable sealing ring, easy disassembly and replacement.

6. When fully open or fully closed, the sealing surface of the ball and the valve seat is isolated from the medium, and the sealing surface of the valve will not be eroded when the medium passes through.

7. Wide range of applications, from a few millimeters to several meters in diameter, from high vacuum to high pressure.

Ⅱ. Structural characteristics of flanged ball valve

1. No friction when opening and closing. This function completely solves the problem that the traditional valve affects the sealing due to the friction between the sealing surfaces.

2. Top installation structure. The valve installed on the pipeline can be directly inspected and maintained online, which can effectively reduce the downtime of the device and reduce the cost.

3. Single valve seat design. It eliminates the problem that the abnormal increase of medium pressure in the valve cavity affects the safety of use.

4. Low torque design. The specially designed valve stem can be easily opened and closed with a small handle.

5. Wedge-shaped sealing structure. Through the mechanical force provided by the valve stem, the ball wedge is pressed against the valve seat to seal the valve, so that the sealing performance of the valve is not affected by the change of pipeline pressure difference, and reliable sealing performance is guaranteed under various working conditions.

6. Self-cleaning structure of sealing surface. When the ball tilts away from the valve seat, the fluid in the pipeline passes through the sealing surface of the ball evenly at 360 degrees, which not only eliminates the local scouring of the valve seat by the high-speed fluid, but also washes away the accumulation on the sealing surface of the flanged ball valve. for self-cleaning purposes.
