Sanitary ball valves have many unique characteristics. It is small in size, flexible and simple, and easy to operate. In addition, the sanitary valve is suitable for various media. Whether it is in gas, liquid or air, it is applicable. The unique characteristics of sanitary ball valves make it loved by most people in the market today and is widely used in many industries such as food, beverage, fine chemical pharmacy and bioengineering.

Introduction of sanitary ball valves

Sanitary ball valves refer to valve pipe fittings used in pharmaceutical, food and other industries that require high sanitary levels. The main body material of sanitary ball valves is the highest grade stainless steel 316L. The purchasers of sanitary valves are basically manufacturers and wholesalers in pharmaceutical, food equipment industries, etc.

The stainless steel sanitary ball valve is made of SUS304 and 316L, which can meet the special requirements of various media in the food and bio-pharmaceutical fields. Its smooth, seamless, and automatic emptying of handcraft fluid channels is also very suitable for the needs of steam cleaning in place. During the manufacturing process, the quality control of sanitary ball valves is strictly in accordance with the FDA requirements, and the computer three-dimensional design is adopted, which is manufactured for GMP requirements.sanitary ball valves

Characteristics of sanitary ball valve

1. The valve body of sanitary ball valve can only be made of 304ss\304L or 316\316L stainless steel, and industrial ball valves while, can only be made of cast iron, cast steel, ductile iron, stainless steel and other materials.

2. Good sealing performance: Because the hard-seal ball valve is sealed manually, it cannot be used until the valve core and the sealing ring are completely matched. Therefore, the sealing performance of the sanitary ball valve is reliable.

3. The appearance is electronically polished by the sanitary ball valve standard to achieve a smooth surface and ensure cleanliness, no medium accumulation area, and no potential pollution.

4. The connection method of sanitary ball valve generally adopts clamp quick installation and thread method; the connection method of industrial ball valve includes flange, thread, quick installation, welding, etc.

5. Small fluid resistance: the resistance coefficient of the sanitary ball valve is equal to the pipe section of the same length.

6.Small size, simple in structure, and light in weight.

7. Easy to operate: open and close quickly, the sanitary ball valve only needs to rotate 90° from fully open to fully closed.

8. Convenient maintenance: The structure of the ball valve is simple, the sealing ring is generally movable, and it is convenient to disassemble and replace.

9. Corrosion resistance: When fully open or fully closed, the sealing surface of the ball and the valve seat is isolated from the medium. When the medium passes, it will not cause erosion of the valve sealing surface.

10. Wide range of application: the diameter can be as small as a few millimeters, as large as a few meters, and can be applied from high vacuum to high pressure.

11. Long service life: Sanitary ball valves have been widely used in petroleum, chemical, power generation, papermaking, atomic energy, aviation, rockets and other sectors, as well as people's daily life.

The future development of sanitary ball valve

According to the current situation, the sanitary valve production industry is in a period of rapid development, which is also a very favorable opportunity. The valve is a fluid transport component, The development of the national economy, especially the national coal chemical industry and equipment manufacturing industry, puts forward new requirements on the sanitary valve: high temperature, high pressure, wear resistance, corrosion resistance, erosion resistance, thermal cycle resistance and zero leakage. Under the new economic situation, engineering, metallurgy, petroleum, mining, machine tools, hydraulic machinery and equipment are also in a period of rapid development. This is to provide sanitary ball valve manufacturers with a wide range of development space, and sanitary ball valves will develop rapidly.


Understanding the characteristics of sanitary ball valves is conducive to better selection and use of sanitary valves. It also makes us believe that sanitary ball valves and other sanitary fittings will have a better development in the future market.
