The Superiority of Forged Steel Ball Valves in Various Industries

Dec 15, 2023

Forged steel ball valves are extensively employed in multiple industries, manufactured through the forging method. These valves surpass the quality of cast steel components, showcasing greater resilience against substantial impact. They exhibit superior plasticity, toughness, and other mechanical properties compared to cast steel parts. Consequently, all critical machine components should incorporate forged steel ball valves.

Due to their outstanding performance, these valves find widespread applications in handling various fluid types such as air, water, steam, corrosive media, slurry, oils, liquid metals, and radioactive substances. The advantages of forged steel ball valves include:

  1. Exceptional Sulfide and Crack Resistance: Materials in direct contact with media in forged steel ball valves are high-tech and comply with international standards. Nickel-plated surfaces enable suitability for high sulfide operations.

  2. High-Temperature and High-Pressure Resistance: Forged steel ball valves, crafted from polymer materials or alloys, demonstrate resistance to high temperatures and pressures. Their versatility allows for the transmission and throttling of various media. The special materials employed contribute to strong corrosion resistance, prolonged lifespan, and extensive applicability.

  3. Corrosion-Resistant Valve and Seat: Both the valve and seat in forged steel ball valves are constructed from corrosion-resistant materials. The seat material, polytetrafluoroethylene, exhibits inertness to nearly all chemicals, ensuring long-term sealing. Its strong inert properties contribute to stable performance, resistance to aging, and prolonged service life.

  4. Symmetrical Design and High Pressure Tolerance: Generally symmetrical, forged steel ball valves can withstand substantial pipeline pressure, maintaining positional stability. They perform well in both fully open and half-open positions, offering excellent sealing performance without adhesion during the transportation of viscous liquids.

These characteristics highlight the exceptional performance of forged steel ball valves, showcasing their effectiveness in diverse applications. While not an exhaustive list of features, it underscores the valve's superior operational capabilities.
