What are the types of ball valves?
Types. There are five general body styles of ball valves: single body, three-piece body, split body, top entry, and welded. The difference is based on how the pieces of the valve—especially the casing that contains the ball itself—are manufactured and assembled. The valve operation is the same in each case.
What does WSP mean on a ball valve?
Working steam pressure (WSP) indicates the maximum steam pressure that a ball valve can withstand at the highest temperature rating.
What is a PP ball valve?
Natural, unpigmented, virgin polypropylene designed specifically for ultra-pure water. Our Polypropylene True Blue Ball Valves provide a cost-effective option for ultra-pure water handling applications.
Are PVC ball valves any good?
PVC ball valves are an excellent choice in a wide range of plumbing applications with different options for maintenance and high temperature. Ball valves are also available in Brass and Stainless Steel so there is a ball valve for every application where the flow of water needs to be controlled.
What are the four types of ball valves?
There are four general body styles of ball valves: single body, split body, top entry, and welded. There are four general types of ball valves: full port, standard port, reduced port, and v port.
How do ball valves fail?
A variety of factors can contribute to ball valve failure including poor design (chemical compatibility, rated pressure/flow rate, etc.), faulty installation, and/or improper operation. Guidelines are available in literature to properly design a ball valve.
What is SWP mean?
Hate Slogans/Slang Terms. SWP is an acronym for the white supremacist slogan ” Supreme White Power.” It seems to have originated on the West Coast, probably in California’s prison system, though it has spread from there. Supreme White Power and SWP are both common prison tattoos.
What is 150 WSP?
WSP stands for water steam pressure or working steam pressure. It reflects the rating for the valve at water steam temperature. A valve rated at 600WOG/150WSP should be able to withstand 600 psi in a water or gas pipe and 150 psi if used in a steam supply system.
What is SWP pressure?
SWP: Steam Working Pressure: This designates the maximum recommended steam pressure a product can operate at. CWP: Cold Working Pressure: This designates the maximum non-shock pressure a product can operate at. “Cold” is generally defined as a range between -20°F to 100°F.
What type of valve is a butterfly valve?
The butterfly valve is classified as a quarter-turn valve. It works like a ball valve for quick shutoff, but unlike a ball valve, the butterfly valve can also open and close incrementally. This difference means that the disc is always present in the flow and allows for a drop in pressure.
How long do PVC ball valves last?
Using the latest and greatest ball valve in your plumbing can help save more water. It also helps you save money while helping the environment. A ball valve life expectancy is about eight to ten years.
Are PVC ball valves airtight?
Yes they hold vacuum.
Do PVC ball valves have a flow direction?
A ball valve, generally has no “direction of flow”. But to save you time and aggravation, don’t use the pvc ball valve.
