Fully welded ball valve

Fully welded ball valve

Fully welded ball valves are widely used in various fields. Its superior quality and high performance stability cannot be achieved by ordinary cast steel ball valves. The service life of fully welded ball valves is much longer than that of cast steel ball valves. Fully welded ball valves are widely used in cities. Gas, urban heating, petrochemical, shipbuilding, steel, pressure regulating stations, power plants and other pipeline equipment.

Introduction of pressure rating of fully welded ball valve

1. For the high pressure level A (1.6MPa), it is recommended to use cast steel valves. WCB grade is usually used to manufacture valves with pressure levels below 4 MPa.
2. For transmission and distribution pipelines with water pressure lower than Class B (0.2MPa), it is recommended to use gray cast iron valves. The advantage is that it is highly corrosion resistant and inexpensive, making it very suitable for underground pipelines.
3. For pressures lower than medium A (0.4MPa) or higher pressures than B (0.8MPa), we recommend the use of ductile iron or cast steel, with emphasis on ductile iron. Example: Comparing ductile iron QT400-18 and cast steel WCB, the mechanical properties of the former are not inferior to the latter, its corrosion resistance and casting process are better than those of cast steel, and the price is lower. About 70% of cast steel (usually cast steel)) Therefore, the overall performance and price of ductile iron valves are better than those of cast steel valves. Ductile iron valves can be used within the above pressure range. However, special attention must be paid to monitoring the quality of ductile iron materials.

Test before using fully welded ball valve

After the production of the fully welded ball valve is completed, the test will be repeated because the product standard is very high. The thick-walled multilayer welding process for welding ball valves is usually made of metallic materials. Repeated heating and cooling processes can lead to uneven and degraded welded joint structure, resulting in higher residual stress and welding defects. Welding is the last step after product assembly, and since the valve cavity contains non-metallic sealing materials rubber and PTFE plastic, post-weld heat treatment is not allowed.

Daily maintenance requirements for fully welded ball valves

It mainly means that there are operational requirements for sewage and grease injection, and the following guidelines need to be followed: When cleaning the pipeline, the sewage should be discharged as planned. After the water pressure test, before the arrival of the cold season. When draining water, the ball valve of the fully welded ball valve must be in a fully closed or fully open position. Slowly loosen the spool of the discharge valve until the pressure in the valve cavity is completely released, and then tighten the spool.

Product features of welded ball valve

The welded ball valve adopts an elastic sealing structure, which is reliable in sealing and easy to open and close. The valve stem adopts a bottom-mounted structure with an inverted seal, and the valve stem will not be rushed out when the valve cavity is abnormally increased in pressure. Ball valves are widely used in petroleum, chemical, urban water supply and drainage and other working conditions that require strict shut-off. Drive mode: manual, electric, pneumatic can be set with a 90° switch positioning mechanism, and lock as required to prevent misoperation. .

Frequently Asked Question

Do you have any question?

Fully welded ball valve offers the advantage of a compact envelope, which allows for increased strength and significant reduction in weight. Furthermore, since the body is made by welding forged parts, there are fewer potential leak paths when compared to side-entry and top-entry ball valves.

ATV supplies fully welded ball valves in a wide range of materials and configurations to meet any specific need of the application and customer’s requirements. Many optional features are available for seat designs, seat and stem seals, and end connections.

The valve design that combines the maximum strength at the minimum weight, as well as a high resistance to pipeline internal and external loads.
