What is a v-ball control valve?

Regular ball valves are trusted far and wide by a multitude of industries. Now, v-ball control valves have resulted in new standards of flow control, as BM Engineering Supplies explains. 

What is a V-Ball control valve?

Standard round ported ball valves continue to be used for a range of control applications. However, the advent of v-ball control valves has resulted in new standards of flow control across the board. When compared to similarly sized globe valves and segmented control valves, these quarter turn control ball valves offer a more compact, lighter and more cost-efficient alternative.

V-ball control valves offer fast response times to control signals and bubble-tight shutoff with zero leakage. Other benefits include superior repeatability, high flow capacity, ease of maintenance, the ability to function with fluids containing solids, and exceptional interface with PLCs and computer command signals.

V-Ball Valve applications

V-Ball valves are used in many applications and markets. These can include transmission and storage, gas processing, and industrial, to name but a few. V-Ball valves are also commonly used in water treatment, food processing, acid transfer, agriculture, bleach chemicals, leaching acid, waste processing and pharmaceuticals.
