A brief introduction to V-port ball valves

by Adamant Valves

V-port sanitary ball valves are also known as V-port sanitary shut-off valves and V-port regulating ball valves. This type of ball valve is both fixed ball valve and single-seat sealed ball valve. Its regulating performance is the best among all ball valves. Its V-port and metal seat have cutting effects, which is very suitable for medium containing fiber, tiny solid particles and slurries. It’s the most popular ball valves nowadays.

V-port ball valve

V-port ball valve is a kind of ball valve. Its closing member is a V-port opening on a hemisphere. V-port opening has a sharp edge. When the sphere rotates, there’s a wiping effect between closing members, which has a big cutting force on media. The V-port opening of the sphere and the channel of the valve seat form a fan-shaped area, which can change the cross-sectional area of the flow channel during rotation, resulting in the precise regulation of the media. It’s a kind of sanitary regulating valve with angular rotation. Its sealing performance is about the same with that of ordinary ball valves, making it have regulating as well as opening and closing functions. Coupled with pneumatic or electric actuators, it’s widely used in self-control systems of industrial process.
