The stainless steel they are machined with also helps eliminate corrosion. Well suited for actuation and the centering lip characteristic ensures precise alignment of the coupler and bracket stem. In addition, in-line maintenance of the valve can be completed without the need to remove the actuator. Ball valves and their related pads are offered in standard, full port pipe and port tube dimensions, assuring the correct piping system sizing.
Flush Bottom Valve Utilization
Flush bottom valves ensure efficient draining of the liquid and/or slurry from the tank. The distinctive design of the flush bottom ball valve prevents the development of the dead area in the valve, meaning no hold up area in the vessel or tank. This action is established as the ball of the valve will come in the level using the inlet flange. Flush bottom valve release is intended for on/off service and it shouldn't be utilized for throttling solutions.
