Applications of forged steel ball valves
Forged steel ball valves are widely used valve products in many industries. They are widely used for air, water, steam, various corrosive media, slurry, oils, liquid metal and radioactive media due to their excellent performance.
Advantages of forged steel ball valves
The advantages of forged steel ball valves are as follows:

1. Forged steel ball valves have very good resistance to vulcanization and cracking. The material of the forged steel ball valve that is in contact with the medium is high-tech material, which meets the international standard level; the surface of the forged steel ball valve is plated with nickel, which can meet the operation containing much vulcanization.

2. Forged steel ball valves are made from polymer materials or alloys, which are resistant to high temperature and high pressure and suitable for transmission and throttling of various media. Moreover, they have good corrosion resistance, a long service life and a wide range of applications due to the use of special materials.   
3. Forged steel ball valves not only are made of corrosion resistant materials, but their valve seats are in special materials too. In addition, the material is inert to almost all chemical substances, so it can have a good seal for a long time. Because of its good inertness, it has stable performance, is not easy to age and can be used for a long time.

4. Generally speaking, the forged steel ball valve is symmetrical, so it can withstand great pipeline pressure and its position is not easy to change. Whether the valve is fully opened or half opened, it can perform well, has good sealing performance and will not stick to the viscous liquid when  transporting it.
The above points are some of the characteristics of forged steel ball valves. Although the above contents do not list all the characteristics, professionals in the industry know that a forged steel ball valve is a valve with good working performance. If a company required liquid transportation also needs to install a valve, the forged steel ball valve can be considered.
The differences between forged steel ball valves and cast steel ball valves
Cast steel is used for casting castings, which is a casting alloy. Cast steel is divided into carbon cast steel, low alloy cast steel and special steel. Cast steel refers to a kind of steel casting produced by casting method. Cast steel is mainly used to manufacture parts with complex shapes that are difficult to forge or cut and require high strength and plasticity. Forged steel ball valves are manufactured by forging methods. Forged steel ball valves have better quality than cast steel parts and can withstand greater impact. Their plasticity, toughness and other mechanical properties are also better than cast steel parts. Therefore, forged steel ball valves should be adopted for all important machine parts.
