One common place where ball valves are used in the aerospace industry is in turbines. Here, the valves work to ensure maximum efficiency of the turbine by maintaining a bubble-tight seal while also standing up to the high pressures and temperatures.
In addition to this, ball valves can often be found throughout the entire construction of planes, helicopters, and other aerospace vehicles and equipment. Their reliability combined with their efficiency makes them highly desirable in an industry where reliability and efficiency are both so incredibly important.
Aerospace is an industry that demands the best out of every single component used, including the valves. We create precise balls for valves and assure that they can be applied to your needs. With that said, there are a few key advantages of balls for valves that make them ideal for use in the aerospace industry including:
Ball Valve Strength & Durability:
Ball valves are able to withstand extremely high temperatures, high pressures, and high volumes of flow, making them ideal for high-stress environments such as inside a jet turbine. They are also designed to have an incredibly long service life.
Affordability of Ball Valves:
Like any industry, cost efficiency matters in the aerospace industry, and balls for valves are much more affordable than any comparable valves that would be up to the task.
Balls for valves don't require any lubrication to function. More importantly, though, ball valves maintain an incredibly tight seal, leading to maximum efficiency in machines where every drop of fuel matters.
Ease of Ball Valve Repairs:
Repairs in the aerospace industry are often neither simple nor cheap. It comes as good news, then, that repairing and, if need be, replacing any ball valves can be done with relative ease. Ball valves are designed so that accessing the seats of the valve is simple, making repairs a breeze. Likewise, installing balls for valves are quickly and easily done.
Selecting the right ball valve for use in your aerospace application comes down to choosing a supplier who doesn't cut corners. Ball valves used in the aerospace industry must be able to stand up to the rigorous demands required of them and should be built in a manner that allows them to operate at 100% efficiency for the duration of their life-cycle.
At Hartford Technologies, we recognize the high expectations set by those in the aerospace industry and are proud of our ability to rise up to meet them.
