Types of ball valves :

Different types of bores for ball valves – full port, reduce port and V-port. These three types have different constructions and purposes.

  1. Full Port Ball Valve – A full-port, also known as a full bore, ball valve has a bore internal diameter (ID / inside diameter) approximately equal to the pipeline ID. This allows for reduced friction and pressure loss across the valve. With a full port ball valve there is NO restrictions to the flow of medium, but the valve can be more expensive. This type of bore is ideal for situations where pigging may be necessary. Global Valve & Controls (GVC) series CFS and 2T/3T split body and welded design, full port, flanged ball valve combines its sealing technology and design expertise for over 25 years with the versatility to solve even the most demanding applications . This technology and expertise is widely used in the chemical, pulp and paper, petrochemical, food and beverage and refining industries.
  2. Reduce Port Ball Valve – A reduce-port, also known as a reduce bore, ball valve is a valve in which the bore is reduced to one or two nominal sizes lower. This provides a more restricted flow path, generally resulting in higher energy losses. Global Valve & Controls (GVC) series RCFS and R2T/R3T ball valves offer both full port and reduce port valves. Known for its design features , superior sealing areas and various stainless alloys , the GVC brand is widely recognized as a leader in providing valve and flow control solutions for the energy , and oil and gas industries’ for a general all around great product and a fair price.
  3. V- Port Ball Valve – A V-port ball valve has either a “V” shaped ball or a “V” shaped seat. This type of valve also is known as a control valve in which the flow velocities need to be controlled / regulated as required per the application.

In closing Global Valve & Controls ball valves can be used in a variety of applications and markets, such as pipeline transmission, pig launchers, storage facilities, pulp and paper facilities , food and beverage , gas processing , industrial, and many more . Troy Richard, founder of Global Valve & Controls (GVC) explains that ball valves provide reliable leak protection and fugitive emissions concerns. Ball valves can be open and close quickly in which saves time and money on all automation packages.
