Metal Ball Valves
While PVC boasts exceptional physical qualities that often make it a great choice for ball valves, there are some applications where metal is the better valve material. Often times, it’s recommended to use similar pipe and valve materials, making metal valves a smart choice for some metal piping systems.
Like other ball valves, metal ball valves are design with a sphere that contains a hole through its core to allow the flow of fluids through it when it’s lined up with the pipe. When the ball valve is closed, the hole is turned perpendicular to the pipe to restrict flow.
Metal ball valves are often made from either brass or stainless steel. While brass is the more inexpensive option, stainless steel is ideal for high pressure or high temperature applications.
Key features include:
- Ideal for metal pipelines
- Available in stainless steel or brass
- Available in sizes from ¼” to 2”
