  • Installation Steps of Sanitary Ball Valve

    The sanitary ball valve uses a special molding process to allow a dense sealing surface to achieve zero leakage. Its sphere and shank are fused as one to remove the valve stem from pressure due to pressure changes within the possibility of pressure pieces and, therefore, achieve the fundamental guarantee of safety. It uses a full metal hard welding process that is resistant to strong corrosion. ...
