Half inch ball valves are a popular choice amongst DIY enthusiasts, particularly home brewers, and in many industries, sectors, and manufacturing. Listed below are some of the main advantages of this type of valve which draws people to choose them over other types of valve:
Not all types of valves allow for the easy flow and control of liquids or come equipped with clear on-off position, but all ½ inch ball valves do. This is essential for any application which requires precise measurements, such as in food, beverage and chemical manufacturing.
Value for Money
Valves and parts brought online from specialist stores may cost a little more than those found in hardware stores, but they are also usually much better quality, and sometimes customizable for specific purposes. They will typically have a higher resistance to corrosion and rust and be easier to clean and maintain, meaning they will last much longer without needing to be repaired or replaced. Resistance to temperature extremes mean that the valves won’t freeze or rust during the winter when they aren’t in use. Neither will they weaken during the summer or when kept outdoors. This means that the one-off purchase of the right kind of valve will have value for money for many years.
½ stainless steel ball valves are particularly resistant to corrosion and easy to clean, meaning the resulting liquid will be free from contamination and impurities. This not only makes a difference in home brewing, where contamination can impact the taste of the beer negatively, but in enterprises such as restaurants and manufacturing where the same standard is also kept.
These are just a few of the advantages of ½ ball valves. Consult with an expert or a valve supplier to check if it is the right valve for your job, and you will find a valve you are happy with.
