Oilfield Ball Valves
Material: WCB、 WC6 、WC9、A105、 F11、 CF8、 CF8M
Working pressure:CLASS150-CLASS1500
Nominal diameter:DN50-DN300
Temperature :-196℃-650℃
Connection type:flange, weld, thread
Suitable medium: water, oil, gas
Oilfield ball valve is mainly used to disconnect or connect the medium and can also be used to adjust and control the fluid. V type ball valve
can carry out the relatively precise adjustment and control of flow volume, while three–way ball valve is used to dispatch the medium and
change the flow direction of the medium. Compared with other types of valves, ball valve has the following advantages: The fluid resistance
is small, and ball valve is the one which has the smallest fluid resistance among all types of valves, even the fluid resistance of the necking
ball valves is quite small. The process of opening and closing is fast and convenient. As long as the valve stem rotates 90 degrees, the ball
valve completes the total opening or closing action, which is easy to realize the fast opening and closing.
The structure design of elastic materials has been adopted for floating ball valve sealing ring. However, the structure design of the elastic
float valve seat has been adopted for the trunnion mounted ball valve. It can be designed to have the sealing functions, such as fire–proof
and anti–static–electricity. Full welding of the ball valve body can be directly in the ground, so that in case the valve from erosion and it is
the ideal valve for oil and natural gas pipeline.

Ball Valve Manufacturing
• Firstly, ball valve manufacturing process is divided into three aspects ,the shell, other components and the purchased part .
After the casting, material properties test, solution treatment, intergranular corrosion test, machining, water pressure test
for strength and air tightness test ,the degreasing treatment will be done to the shell.
• Other components need to go through the factory inspection of materials, stainless steel solution treatment, machining
and then be processed in degreasing. After the factory re-inspection , the purchased parts will be degreased . After
degreasing treatment assembly will be followed , then is the operating performance (including the measurement of torque)
test, and next is 0.05MPa tightness test, and then is 1.6MPa tightness test. And finally after blowdown ,the packaging will
be done.

Ball Valve Working Principle
• Ball valve is evolved from the plug valve. It also has the 90 degree rotation but the ball valve is a ball with a circular
through hole or passage through its axis. The ratio of the sphere to the channel should be the same, that is, when the
sphere is rotated 90 degrees, the inlet and outlet should be completely spherical to cut off the flow.
• It only needs to rotate 90 degrees of operation and a small driving torque to close the ball valve tightly. The completely
equal inner cavity provides a straight-through runner of small resistance for the media. Ball valves are generally
considered to be the most suitable for direct opening and closing, but with recent developments, it has been designed to
be throttling and controlling flow.
• The main features of the ball valve are compact structure, easy operation and maintenance, and it is not only suitable for
water, solvents, acids and natural gas and other general working media, but also for medium of poor working conditions,
such as oxygen, hydrogen peroxide, methane and ethylene. Ball valve body can be both a whole and a combined type.

Ball Valve Function
• Ball valve is used in the pipeline to cut off, distribute and change the flow direction of the medium mainly. It can be
closed tightly only with a 90 degree rotation and a small turning moment. The valve is most suitable to work as the
switch and block valve. Because the valve seat insert of ball valves are usually made of rubber, nylon and PTFE, its
service temperature is limited by the material of valve seat insert.
• The cut-off effect of the ball valve is achieved by the metal ball and the plastic valve seat pressing with each other
under the action of the medium (floating ball valve). Under certain contact pressure, distortion of elastic-plastic of
valve seat insert occurs in some areas. This deformation can compensate for the ball's manufacturing accuracy and
surface roughness to ensure the sealing performance of the ball valve. And because the seat insert of ball valve is
usually made of plastic, the fire-resistant and fire-retardant performance should be considered in the choice of ball
valve structure and performance, especially in petroleum, chemical, and metallurgical departments, and the
equipment and pipe system of flammable and explosive media, it should pay more attention to fire resistance and
fire prevention to use ball values.
• Shengli Oilfiled R&T Group offers types of oil and gas pipeline ball valves.
