These examples of Swagelok Valves give the customer great insight into the care, detail, quality, design and testing that goes into the manufacture of each and every Valve in the Swagelok catalogue. It's easy to see why Swagelok has no hesitation in backing their products with the Swagelok Limited Lifetime Warranty.
My goal is either a fake - under cover, used well-known brand, at minimal cost to create an external object like a fake. First, what saves the underground businessmen, it is - raw. Shells taps and ball valves shall be manufactured from special grades of brass, the chemical composition of which in USA are regulated by GOST and abroad - national standards. These standards include the copper content 57-60%, zinc - up to 40%, lead within 0,8-2,2%. (Lead is required to make the brass surface hardness). Illegal vendors typically use non-ferrous metals, the content of impurities which are not controlled. As a result, manufactured valves, the percentage of lead content in which, studies show that reaches 5-7%. It is well known that an excess of lead in water is very harmful to health.
Cases and Ball Valves in the products of leading manufacturers are made by hot pressing or hot forging. Manufacturers producing fake not spent on buying such technology and its products are manufactured by casting. These products are characterized by an uneven surface of the body, rolls, may have a mixed structure of the material - with aerial shells and, consequently, low reliability. Ball valves (balls) rigged valves are often not made of brass, and of transformer steel, coated or even without it. Steel balls quickly corrode and cease to be leak proof. Failure to invest in the copper alloy brass faucet body makes it suspiciously easy. Steel ball compensates for this lack of weight, masking the presence of thin-wall housing is unacceptable.
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.
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.
Likewise, there are other types of these valves that are available today, and that would be the lug style and the wafer style. The most popular would be the wafer style valve. This type would be under the plastic valve. In contrast, lug designed valves contain in them inserts made of metal, which are situated in the valve's bolt holes. The inserts are then eased into each end and through this method they would be permitted in a certain system using only dual bolts and without nuts.
