  • Why Are the Sanitary Ball Valves Useful?

    A spherical disc is attached to the ball valves. This is the part of the valve that controls flow from start to finish. The disc, sphere has a hole through the middle with both ends of the valve, it allows the flow to take place. When the valve is closed, the flow is blocked because the hole is perpendicular to the slit ends of the valve. So, the handle and the port come in a ...
