Widely used for fluid control, ball valves allow users to stop or start flow at a moment’s notice. Available in one-way, two-way, or three-way ball valve configurations, these valves are designed to be versatile. The most commonly used ball valves are plastic or metal, each style offers unique advantages depending on application requirements. At Specialty Mfg. Co. we offer metal and plastic ball valves in standard, customized, and custom configurations. Here are some reasons why our metal ball valve may be the perfect option for your needs.
Higher Temperature Resistance
Though plastic ball valves may not transfer temperature as easily as metal, a metal ball valve can also handle liquids at higher temperatures with low thermal expansion. Therefore, when an extremely hot liquid runs through a metal ball valve, you do not run this risk of compromising the structure or function of the valve.
Greater Shock, Pressure and Stress Resistance
For ball valves used in a high-stress and high-impact manufacturing environment, metal ball valves offer greater resilience to adjacent shock and pressure. If an improperly equipped valve is being used in extreme manufacturing environments, the risk of leaking, cracking or bursting under pressure and stress should be considered.
