Forged steel ball valve and plug valve are the same type of ball valve, only its closing part is a ball, the ball rotates around the center line of the valve body to open and close a ball valve.
Forged steel ball valve is mainly used in the pipeline to cut, distribute and change the flow direction of the medium. Forged steel ball valve is a new type of ball valve widely used in recent years. It has the following advantages:
1. The fluid resistance is small, and the drag coefficient is the same as that of the same length.
2. Simple structure, small size and light weight.
3. Close and reliable, the sealing surface material of the forged steel ball valve is widely used in plastics, has good sealing property, and has been widely used in vacuum systems.
4. Easy to operate, fast opening and closing, as long as it rotates 90° from full-on to full-close, which facilitates remote control.
5. The maintenance is convenient, the structure of the forged steel ball valve is simple, the sealing ring is generally active, and the removal and replacement are more convenient.
6. When fully open or fully closed, the sealing surfaces of the ball body and the valve seat are isolated from the medium. When the medium passes through, the sealing surface of the ball valve will not be eroded.
7. Wide range of applications, ranging from small to several millimeters in diameter and up to a few meters in size, from high vacuum to high pressure.
