Featured Article: Ball Valves

The invention of the ball valve has proven to be a revolutionary development for the valve industry, supplying numerous unique solutions that meet modern flow control requirements. But its successful application was not immediately evident. Early in the life of the ball valve, its current assets and values were not realized. The lack of machining technology to make a truly round ball did not exist. And sealing materials of the time, associated with the use of natural rubbers, were very limited and prevented the ball valve from being applied to any significant industrial use.
