The ball valve is one of the frequently preferred useful valve models to provide fluid control. The ball valve is an advantageous industrial solution since it is affordable as well as useful. There are many types of ball valves to adapt to many installations.
For maximum safety installations, we have been meeting the sector's ball valve needs for years within Ada Valve. When you send us your industrial valve demands, we can quickly meet your demands thanks to our domestic and international stocks.
What is Ball Valve?
The ball valve is the type of valve that keeps the fluid passage under control by using its hollow structure and perforated rotating ball. The perforated ball inside the ball valve can move at an angle of 90 degrees. When the bore of the ball is aligned with the valve cavity, the valve is opened and fluid passage is allowed. When the valve handle is turned and the hole of the ball is aligned with the valve wall, the flow of fluid is completely cut off.
Since the ball valve can be opened and closed easily, it is primarily preferred in areas where fluid flow is frequently controlled. It is easily installed as it does not take up much space in the pipeline. Low-pressure loss is another feature that makes the ball valve stand out among other valves. Due to its structure, the ball valve does not provide liquid flow with two different options open or closed. On the contrary, it can be customized according to your request and how much it will open in relation to turning the handle.

The chrome ball valve can be used optionally in installations where corrosion is not high. There are some advantages offered by using chrome as the main material of the valve.
PN 25 Ball Valve
PN 25 ball valve works with high performance in systems with appropriate nominal pressure. Especially in water systems, the use of PN 25 ball valves is frequently seen. This valve has models with different connection types such as full bore and threaded. As Ada Valve, we address the needs of the industry by producing ball valve models between PN 10-63.
Pneumatic Ball Valve
The pneumatic ball valve is a type of ball valve suitable for two-way flow. It can be used to on/off the passage of fluids and to determine the rite of passage. It can be one of the valve models where fluid transfers are most easily controlled.
The fact that it has an actuator makes the pneumatic ball valve stand out compared to other ball valves. Thanks to the actuator support, the valve has a comfortable use. It is frequently preferred in hot and cold-water facilities, the paper industry, and gas distribution. The only disadvantage of this valve is that it is not as suitable for sudden on-off moves as other types of ball valves.
½ Ball Valve
½ ball valve is a 1/2” diameter ball valve model. It is widely used as it can provide full passage for maximum fluidity. Since it is a safe valve model, it is frequently used in drinking water installations and city water networks. Another advantage of the ½ ball valve is that the on-off handle is suitable for frequent use.
Brass Ball Valve
The brass ball valve is one of the most reasonable ball valve types for low-temperature systems with its compact structure and lightweight. Flow resistance is too low. It can work reliably in corrosive environments, as there is no snagging problem during operation.
Brass ball valves are easy to open and close; It is also suitable for fast opening and closing. The low-pressure loss makes this valve stand out compared to its counterparts. Despite its lightweight and small footprint, its high performance in sealing increases the demand for brass ball valves.
¾ Ball Valve
The ¾ ball valve is indispensable for plumbing lines with a diameter of ¾ inches. Since it is suitable for frequent opening and closing, it is a must in most sectors where the fluid needs to be intervened quickly.

Ball Entry Ball Valve
Top entry ball valves, which are designed to make repairs easier in pipelines that need constant maintenance or in pipelines in critical places, make your work easier by allowing you to remove only the seat and balls of the valve without disassembling the entire valve.
Electric Actuated Ball Valve
An electric actuator is very suitable for ball valves that can be turned and opened in a quarter turn. The electric actuated ball valve uses electrical force to open and close the ball valve.
Pneumatic Actuated Ball valve
The ball valve with a pneumatic actuator, which allows you to remotely control the system, is a model that will provide a lot of convenience in your work. The small size and function of the pneumatic actuator provide you with a suitable environment to operate.
Three-Way Ball Valve
Three-way ball valves with a 90-degree angle work thanks to the ball, the connected arm, and the shaft. Three-way ball valves provide control of the flow as a result of the shaft moving up and down.
Ball Valve Working Principle
The ball valve consists of a perforated body and a rotating hollow ball. The working principle of the ball valve is based on the ball closing the hole and stopping the flow of fluid. The fluid passage is provided through the space in the ball. When the handle is turned, the ball rotates 90 degrees around its axis and the hole of the ball is no longer aligned with the flow.
What Does a Ball Valve Do?
The ball valve is one of the valve types that can be preferred for a leak-proof installation. It is the valve that allows the flow to be controlled and closed. It is used as a shut-off valve in installations. It provides a simple and fast use. Since the fluid resistance is small, it allows the fluids to move in the right order. It is leakproof even at high pressure.
