What is a Brass Ball Valve?
A brass ball valve is a type of valve that's commonly used in plumbing and industrial systems to control the flow of liquids or gases. It's named for the spherical (ball-like) disc at its center that has a hole or port through the middle.
How Does It Work?
When the valve is open (allowing flow), the hole in the ball is aligned with the direction of flow. Liquids or gases can pass through the valve freely.
When the valve is closed (blocking flow), the ball is rotated so that the hole is perpendicular to the flow, blocking it completely.
Where Are These Used?
Brass ball valves are commonly used in water supply lines, gas lines, and HVAC systems, among other uses. They are operated by a handle that's turned to open or close the valve. The handle usually aligns with the hole in the ball when open, providing a quick visual indication of the valve's status.
Why Is It Made in Brass?
Brass, an alloy of copper and zinc, is corrosion-resistant and durable, making it a good choice for many plumbing and industrial applications.
Are These Durable?
Brass ball valves are known for being durable, reliable, and able to handle high pressures and temperatures. They also provide secure shutoff and low-pressure drop, which makes them suitable for a wide range of applications.
