Solid balls are preferred in high-pressure applications where the valve is subjected to elevated forces…
BSP and NPT are two common pipe threads. Their functions are exactly the same. They are used for the connection of pipe joints, and the two threads are universal in use worldwide. What is the difference?
The letter R comes from the German Rohr, which means “tube”. R thread is a series, and the common ones are Rp, Rc, R1 and R2. Details are as follows:
The options for ball valves are seemingly endless. To select a ball valve, decisions have to be made. Which seat material? What kind of end connections? Full, reduced, or standard port ball? 2-way or multiport? Finally, how many pieces?
A Two-piece(2PC) ball valve, literally speaking, means that the ball valve is composed of two parts – a body and a cap. Both the body and cap are processed by lost wax casting. After the threads are processed, they are tightened with a specific torque, and under the support of the gasket, two parts become
