A Sanitary ball valve has a ball attached to a handle and they are opened by simply turning the handle. The ball has been designed with a hole that goes through the middle. When the hole is in line with both ends of the valves, water flows and you can now fetch the water on the other side of the tap. When the tap is shut off, the hole is perpendicular to both ends of the valve and that means that the flow of the water will be blocked.
The good thing about the balls is that they are durable and you can use them for many years without any fear of leakages. This makes the valves the best choice for anyone who wants the perfect shut off application. They are mainly used in industries because they are easy to maintain and can either be operated by actuators or manually.
Such sanitary valve is operated pneumatically. Because of its ability to deal with highly viscous liquids, it is widely used in the beverage, chemical, food or pharmaceutical industry. The valve has been designed with the ability to regulate the flow of medium through piping systems. In fact, a large number of industries are now using this valve as it has proven to be very important in maintaining a constant flow of the medium. It also has low maintenance costs.
When choosing a sanitary ball valve, it is important that you get a valve that will meet your demands. For example, when working with a high-pressure piping system, you want a valve that can withstand the pressure. The same applies to temperature. When it comes to industrial applications, money should not be the determining factor because you want a valve that will work for your case. The good thing about ball valves is that they have zero maintenance cost. That means that once you install them, you do not have to incur any more costs.
