Commonly used in landscaping, PVC ball valves allow you to turn the flow of liquids on and off quickly, while creating a watertight seal. These particular valves work well for pools, laboratories, food and beverage industries, water treatment, life science applications and chemical applications. These valves have a ball inside that rotates on a 90-degree axis. A hole through the center of the ball allows water to flow freely when the valve is on the “on” position, while stopping flow completely when the valve is in the “off” position.
Ball valves can be made from a variety of materials, but PVC is the most often chosen one. What makes these so popular is their durability. The material is rust-proof and maintenance free, so they can be used in outdoor applications where they are not needed very often, but when they are needed it is critical that they work properly. They also can be used in chemical mixing applications, where corrosion would be a serious problem. The high pressure resistance of PVC also makes it popular for applications where liquid flows at a high pressure. When the valve is open, there is minimal drop in pressure because the port of the ball is almost identical in size to the port of the pipe.
PVC ball valves come in a wide range of diameters. We carry valves ranging in size from 1/2 inch to 6 inches, but larger options may be available if needed. We carry saking true union, true union and compact ball valves to meet a wide range of needs. True union valves are particularly popular because they allow for the removal of the carrier portion of the valve, without taking the entire valve out of the system, so repairs and maintenance are simple. All feature the durability of PVC to give you many years of use.
