Understanding the Mechanism of OEM Ball Valves

In fluid control systems, OEM ball valves stand as common and crucial components. They control the on/off and flow direction of fluids by rotating a ball, offering advantages such as simplicity, ease of operation, and excellent sealing performance. Below, we delve into the mechanism of OEM ball valves from four aspects.

Basic Structure of Ball Valves

OEM ball valves are primarily composed of components such as the valve body, ball, valve stem, and sealing rings. The valve body serves as the fluid channel, while the ball, acting as the controlling element, can freely rotate within the valve body. The valve stem connects the ball to the operating mechanism, controlling the rotation of the ball. Sealing rings ensure a tight seal between the ball and the valve body, preventing fluid leakage.

Operating Principle

The operating principle of OEM ball valve is straightforward. When the valve stem rotates the ball by 90 degrees, the through-hole in the ball aligns or misaligns with the flow passage in the valve body, thus opening or closing the fluid flow. In the closed state, the through-hole in the ball misaligns with the flow passage, preventing fluid flow. In the open state, the through-hole aligns with the flow passage, allowing smooth fluid flow.

Sealing Performance

The sealing performance of OEM ball valves is a crucial performance indicator. By selecting high-quality sealing ring materials and optimizing the sealing structure, ball valves can maintain excellent sealing effects in high-pressure, high-temperature, or corrosive media environments. Additionally, the machining precision and surface quality of the ball also significantly affect sealing performance.

Application Fields

Due to the excellent fluid control performance and reliability of OEM ball valves, they find widespread applications in various industries, including petroleum, chemical, natural gas, power, and pharmaceuticals. Whether used as a shut-off valve or a regulating valve, OEM ball valves play a unique role in ensuring the safe and efficient operation of fluid systems.

In conclusion, understanding the mechanism of OEM ball valves is crucial for the proper selection and usage of these valves. In practical applications, it's essential to choose the appropriate ball valve model and specifications based on specific conditions and fluid characteristics to ensure the stable operation of fluid control systems.
