SS ball valves can be tightly closed with just a 90-degree rotation and a small turning torque. The fully equal valve cavity provides a resistance-free, straight-through flow channel for the medium. The main characteristics of the ball valve are its compact structure, easy operation and maintenance. SS ball valves can be used to control the flow of various types of fluids such as air, water, steam, various corrosive media, mud, oil, liquid metals and radioactive media. The valve body of the ball valve can be integral or combined. Such valves should generally be installed horizontally in pipelines.

SS pneumatic ball valves, SS electric ball valves, and SS manual ball valves. The materials of SS ball valves are divided into 304, 316, and 321 SS ball valves.
SS ball valves rely on rotation of the valve core to make the valve unblocked or closed. The ball valve switch is light, small in size, can be made into a large diameter, and is reliable in sealing. It has a simple structure, easy maintenance, and the sealing surface and ball surface are usually in the closed state and are not easily eroded by the medium. It is widely used in various industries. Its closing part is a sphere that rotates around the center line of the valve body to achieve opening and closing.
Copper ball valves have a compact structure, reliable sealing, simple structure, easy maintenance, sealing surfaces and ball surfaces are usually in the closed state, not easily eroded by the medium, easy to operate and maintain, and applicable to water, solvents, acids and natural gas, and also applicable to harsh working conditions, such as oxygen, hydrogen peroxide, methane, and ethylene, etc. It is widely used in various industries. The valve body of the ball valve can be integral or combined.
Classification of copper ball valves
According to the structural type of copper ball valves
Floating ball type, fixed ball type. Main products in Utmost floating ball valve factory include flange floating ball valves, fixed ball two-piece ball valves, fixed ball soft-sealed ball valves, lined fluorine ball valves, fixed ball SS high-temperature ball valves, etc.
According to the flow type of copper ball valves
Straight-through type, three-way type, four-way type, five-way type. Main products include straight-through one-piece ball valves, 3 way pneumatic ball valve, etc.
According to the installation form of copper ball valves
Integral type, two-piece type, three-piece type, upper installation type. Main products include two-piece lined fluorine ball valves, three-piece SS ball valves, top-installed ball valves, etc.
According to the diameter of copper ball valve passage
Full diameter type, reduced diameter type. Main products include full diameter flange ball valves, reduced diameter ball valves, etc.
They use completely different materials, copper ball valves are mainly composed of copper, and SS ball valves are made of SS.
Different corrosion resistance
Copper ball valves have better corrosion resistance than SS ball valves, and their opening and closing operations are smooth, effortless, and durable. SS does not produce corrosion, pitting, rust, wear, and high temperature resistance. Generally speaking, SS is more expensive.
Different temperature capabilities
Under the same pressure environment, if the medium temperature does not exceed 80 degrees, SS ball valves can be used, but if the temperature exceeds 80 degrees, copper ball valves must be used.
Copper ball valves are more expensive because the materials used are relatively expensive, and SS ball valves are cheaper than copper ball valves.
Different applicable substances
SS ball valves can be used to control the flow of various types of fluids such as air, water, steam, various corrosive media, mud, oil, liquid metals, and radioactive media. Copper ball valves are suitable for water, solvents, acids, natural gas, and other general working media, as well as for harsh working conditions such as oxygen, hydrogen peroxide, methane, and ethylene.
