Valves are either made of plastic or metal and can be controlled either by handles, levers, pedals and wheels or can be controlled automatically. Generally, the exterior parts are either metal or plastic and are called seat and the inner part generally has plastic and rubber valves for an effective control of the flow of fluids. Body is the inner part of the valve that fits on the seat and controls the flow by opening and closing either partially or wholly depending upon the requirement of the flow rate.
The third one is similar to ball check valves, but the plug that seals the valve is shaped like a cone. It also can be called a lift check valve in which the disc, sometimes called a lift, can be lifted up off its seat by higher pressure of inlet or upstream fluid to allow flow to the outlet or downstream side. The cone is held on a bar, allowing it to lift out of the way when the water is flowing and drop back into place when the water is off. If water backflows through the pipe, it pushes up against the cone, creating a seal that keeps it from going any further.
Ball valves are usually quarter turn valves (as we turn the lever by 90 degrees to start or stop the flow) and use a hollow, perforated and pivoting ball that is also called as a floating ball. It is through this valve that the flow of fluids takes place. When the lever or handle is turned to 90 degrees, the hole of the ball gets aligned with the pipe opening and starts the flow. When again the lever is turned by 90 degrees, the hole turns around and the ball blocks the opening of the pipe thus causing the flow to stop.
Full port valves are used when there is a requirement of free flow rate of fluids. This valve has an oversized ball with a big hole to allow huge quantities to flow through it. But when there is a requirement of high pressure in the flow, reduced port valves are preferred. A common example is the pipe heads that are used for a car wash. As we require pressure in water flow, this type of valve is used in them. Trunnion ball valves have a disc or anchoring above and below the valve generally suitably when there is a large and high pressure flow rate requirement.
More recently, on the PEX plumbing and radiant heating networks as brass fittings water shutoff dominated by two products: "valve cork entrance omental tapered Threaded Brass Ball Valve BVT012D" and "Sweat Brass Ball Valve BVS012D". Passport service life of tube-omental valve - 8 years, the average life-at least 1500 cycles, time to failure - at least 400 cycles. In fact, these valves after 40-50 cycles begin to be capricious: cotton gland packing into a brown porridge, soaked in water, and the cone stop tube, originally friction to the body under the influence of abrasive solids and sludge sediment in the water begins to hang out in the body, passing water in the closed position. If you also take into account the extremely high coefficient of local resistance plug valves (3,5-5,7), it is not surprising that plumbers often just throw the locking cap, leaving the body dubious backdrop of the pipeline.
