The Pneumatic Ball Valve: A Technological Marvel in Flow Control
The pneumatic actuated ball valve, a key offering in our extensive product portfolio, is an embodiment of our technical expertise and commitment to quality. It represents an innovative solution for flow control across diverse industrial applications.
A air actuated ball valve operates by leveraging the power of compressed air. The heart of this device is a spherical disc, the ‘ball’, which rotates to control the flow of fluids. When aligned with the flow, the valve is open; when perpendicular, it obstructs the flow, effectively enabling or inhibiting fluid passage at the operator’s discretion.
The robust design of the pneumatic actuator ball valve ensures durability and operational efficiency. Its ability to withstand high pressures and temperatures makes it an indispensable asset in various industries.
In the oil and gas sector, both onshore and offshore operations extensively utilize this valve. Its resilience against harsh environments and volatile substances makes it ideal for controlling the flow of petroleum products under extreme conditions.
The petrochemical industry also benefits from the pneumatic ball valve’s capabilities. Its ability to deliver tight shutoff even after prolonged use makes it an optimal choice for managing the flow of corrosive fluids and gases. Furthermore, its quick-acting nature is crucial in fire protection systems, where immediate response is essential.
Power generation plants use our pneumatic ball valves in high-pressure boiler feed water systems and cooling circuits. Its ability to withstand intense pressure makes it an ideal fit for these critical applications.
Food processing and pharmaceutical industries also reap the benefits of our pneumatic ball valve. Its easy-to-clean design and capability to establish airtight sealing are vital in maintaining sterile and hygienic conditions.
Water treatment facilities implement our pneumatic ball valve in their systems due to its reliability and durability, contributing significantly to efficient operations and water conservation efforts.
Every pneumatic ball valve we manufacture undergoes rigorous R&D and strict quality control processes. This ensures that they meet the highest industry standards and provide our customers with a reliable, high-performance solution for their flow control needs.

What is a pneumatic ball valve？
A pneumatic ball valve is a type of quarter turn, on/off valve that uses either compressed air or gas as the operating medium. This type of valve has two ports that are connected when the valve is in an open position and disconnected when in a closed position. Pneumatic ball valves are typically available in full port designs, meaning they have no restrictions to flow size within their body and therefore have lower pressure drops than other types of valves.
They come with a range of sizes from ½” to 12″ (15mm – 300mm), temperature ranges between –46°C and 343°C, and pressure ratings ranging from ASME class 150 to ASME class 300 (PN10 to PN40). End connections can include ASME B16.34 class 150 and 300, DIN PN16-25-40, JIS 10K & 20K, etc., while construction materials can include stainless steel (CF8M/CF8/CF3M), carbon steel (WCB) or other alloys depending on application requirements.
Pneumatic ball valves feature several unique design features such as built-in ISO 5211 direct mounting pad for easy automation; blow-out proof stem; frie safe design approved; anti-static devices for ball–stem–body; pressure balance hole in the ball slot; TA-LUFT design approved; casting boss on body for draining which make them ideal when used in process plants like tank farms often found with oil & gas applications around the world.
How does an air actuated ball valve work?
An air actuated ball valve is a device that uses pressurized air to open and close valves, regulating the passage of fluids in a system. It prevents backflow and contamination by keeping its internal components from direct contact with the material flowing through it. This type of valve is ideal for many applications, including process control, tank farms, fueling, oil & gas, and more.
What is the difference between an actuated ball valve and a solenoid valve?
The difference between an actuated ball valve and a solenoid valve can be significant depending on the application. An actuated ball valve is a device used to control the flow of liquids and gases in systems requiring precise control of flow, pressure or temperature. It works by using actuators such as electric motors, pneumatic cylinders, or hydraulic cylinders to move a spherical disc-shaped closure element within pipework. This allows for on/off control of system resources with accuracy and repeatability adjustable through manual or automated means.
A solenoid valve is an electromechanical device that uses an electrical current to open and close valves automatically when energized (or de-energized). It consists of an enclosed coil with movable core which opens and closes by magnetic field created by running current through it. The purpose of using these valves is automation in various industrial applications like fuel injection systems for combustion engines, air conditioning units etc; airtight seal generation in fluid power systems; biomedical process controls etc. Solenoid valves can be either normally closed (NC) or normally opened (NO) depending upon their configuration even though both are technically considered 2 port valves since they have only two ports – Inlet & Outlet – connected together when kept unpowered/energized while being separated when powered/energized due to the operation mechanism involved.
What are the applications of pneumatic ball valves？
Pneumatic ball valves are incredibly useful pieces of equipment in a wide variety of industries, and they offer numerous advantages over other types of valves. In the world of industrial automation, pneumatic ball valves play a major role in controlling fluids such as air, gas, water and oil. Here is an overview of some applications where these type of valves are used:
Pneumatic ball valves are often used to control and switch between different pipes in compressed air systems found in factories or manufacturing plants. They can be used to restrict or adjust the flow rate which helps ensure that only the necessary amount of air pressure flows through at any given time. This helps conserve energy while also improving overall plant efficiency levels.
