Frequently Asked Questions

A brass ball valve is a type of valve used to control the flow of fluids in plumbing systems and other applications. It features a spherical closure (ball) with a hole through it for fluid to pass.

Brass ball valves are known for their durability, corrosion resistance, and reliability. They are suitable for a wide range of applications and provide a secure shut-off.

Brass ball valves work by turning the handle, which rotates the ball inside the valve. When the hole in the ball aligns with the flow direction, fluid can pass through; when closed, it blocks the flow.

Brass ball valves come in various configurations, including full-port, reduced-port, and multi-port options, each designed for specific applications.

Wafer pattern valves are designed for installation between two flanges at intermediate points within the process pipeline, while lugged pattern valves use threaded lugs for precise self-centering capabilities and are commonly used as dead-end service valves or for maintenance purposes.

Brass ball valves can be used in high-pressure systems, but it's essential to choose the right type and size to match the pressure requirements.

Brass ball valves generally require minimal maintenance. Regular inspection and lubrication of the handle may be needed for smooth operation.

Yes, brass ball valves can be used for controlling gas flow, but it's crucial to select models designed for gas applications.

Yes, brass ball valves are suitable for potable water systems, but it's essential to use lead-free valves for drinking water. These can be identified through whether such valve has WRAS Approval.

Installing and replacing brass ball valves typically involves cutting and soldering or threading the pipe ends to connect the valve securely.
