Ball valves references

Pulp & paper industry uses ball valve primarily as a shut-off valve. The ball valve full bore design makes pipe resistance small, which in itself provides little energy loss. The valve can be equipped with worm gear for local operation or pneumatic actuators for remote control. The ball valve has 2 seats and is therefore tight in both flow directions. The spring-seat design gives a good tightness also at low differential pressures.

Ball valve with cylindrical bore

SOMAS ball valves have a homogeneous ball with a cylindrical bore. This cylindrical bore contributes to the low pipe resistance, and is beneficial in applications of abrasive media. The ball valve as valve type is used in a wide range
of applications, and in most industries.
