What Stainless Steel Valve Basics do You Need to Know?
There are many stainless steel ball valves producers around the world that produce according to their own designs and quality standards. Similar to stainless steel fittings, the price of the valves is mainly determined by the quantity of material used and the manufacturing process needed. Some suppliers try to reduce the amount of material needed by using hollow balls in the valves or by streamlining the design. Additional features such as ISO mounting pads or polished valves for sanitary applications, will increase the quantity of material needed, therefore increasing the price of the valve. The standard ball valve made of stainless steel consists of casted parts and the gasket. Even though the valve gasket is only a small physical part when compared to the size of the entire valve, it is an important factor in regards of how much pressure the valve can withstand at different temperatures. Stainless steel ball valves are still globally assembled by hand, as the internal construction can be complex. After the valve is assembled, each valve is tested in regards to pressure. Other materials from which valves can be made from are carbon steel, brass, copper and bronze. Valves are a vital element in the flow of fluids and solids. These act as traffic lights in the system. With the world becoming even more automatic, actuators have become more and more necessary in valve applications. The five main actuator types are hydraulic, pneumatic, electric, magnetic and mechanical. These components are usually supplied separately therefore making it important to know which mounting pad is necessary for the actuator. Swiss Fittings offers most of the valves types with the ISO standard mounting pad.
