Why are two piece of ball valves useful?

    In this post, we look at how two piece of ball valve works, its different types, and some reasons why it should be used.

    What Are Ball Valves?
    These are valves that make use of a ball to navigate the movement of substances from one seating surface to another. The function of the ball is similar to a track ball found in old computer mice.

    However, the ball in the valve consists of a port, which changes alignment in response to the position of the valve. For instance, when the ball valve is set to open, the port changes the direction according to the flow of the substance. When the valve is closed, however, the port adopts a perpendicular direction and acts as a seal to block the flow of substances.

    Ball valves vary in the degree to which the port can change directions. In most cases, the ball valve will adopt a 90 degree rotation. However, in other cases, a 360 degree rotation is more beneficial.
