A.J.G Waters Equipment Ltd work with many large manufacturers of specialist equipment such as High Performance Ball Valves. If your project is in requirement of bespoke ball valves or other types of valves, then please contact us and discuss your requirements.


What is a Ball Valve?

A ball valve, as the name suggests, has an inner ball which is perforated. Once the valve tap is turned a quarter-turn, the perforated ball pivots 90 degrees and controls the flow through it. It is open when the ball's hole is in line with the flow and closed when it is pivoted 90-degrees by the valve handle.


How does a Ball Valve work?

A ball valve typically has a handle that lifts and turns 90 degrees. Bigger industrial ball valves may have a turn wheel.
Here is a simple diagram showing the ball within the valve.
