Ball valves offer great economy and durability for a wide range of applications that do not require clean-in-place (CIP) service. They are easy to install and maintain. The full ported, straight-through design of ball valves frees the flow path from obstructions. As a result, pressure drops across the valves are reduced, and there is no change in elevation for piping through the valve. This allows efficient and safe production or cleaning processes in the food, beverage, dairy, industrial, and chemical industries.
