Types of ball valves

Different styles of PVC valves are beneficial for different uses. For instance, a PVC true union ball valve is great for applications that require on and off functionality. True union (also known as double union) valves are great because they can be taken apart for cleaning and repairs without damaging or altering the pipe line! For this reason, they are one of the more popular PVC valve types for industrial use. A few other are check valves, gate valves, and butterfly valves.

We get calls about using our PVC ball valves for all types of applications. These include everything from backyard ponds and pools to huge industrial plant jobs. The truth is, there is a PVC ball valve for almost every liquid on/off application. They are that resilient and adaptable.

Application of ball valves

PVC is an ideal choice for many industrial applications. The rigid material is resistant to a number of harsh chemicals and also resists corrosion – which can be an issue with metal parts. PVC valves come in both socket and threaded (female) style end connections. They range in size depending on the valve type and brand. We carry valves that range from 1/2″ to 10″ in size and beyond!

PVC ball valves are suitable for use in a wide range of industries and applications, including plumbing, automotive, and chemical processing. PVC ball valves are known for their durability and reliability, and they are an excellent choice for use in high-pressure applications.
PVC is a thermoplastic, meaning it can be molded and shaped using heat. It’s made from combining chlorine and ethylene, two of the most abundant materials on Earth. PVC is strong and weather resistant, making it ideal for construction applications. It’s also used in plumbing, electrical wiring, and packaging.

How it works

A ball valve is a type of valve that is used to control the flow of fluids. It consists of a ball that is placed in a chamber with two or more ports. The ball has a hole in the center that allows fluid to flow through it when the valve is open. The ball is held in place by a stem that is connected to a handle. When the handle is turned, the stem moves the ball and changes the position of the hole.
