The general consumer is difficult to distinguish a fake ball valve from the original. Here are some simple tips to help in some cases this can be done. If you can not buy products directly from the distributor, you can contact him by phone and to clarify whether it is an official supplier of your seller. All known manufacturers of ball valves have their own web pages. Of these, you can learn about the mandatory labeling of attributes of products, design features, etc. Some manufacturers place the working drawings of its products. When you're all aware of the labeling, dimensions, weight and other attributes of your product, you will easily determine its authenticity. If such arrangements you have no time, you can use some practical advice:
A valve such as this operates the same as a ball valve. This valve contains a flat round plate that is placed in the middle of the pipe, as well as the plate has a bar inside that is joined to a switch in the outer valve portion. This type of valve functions by revolving the handle as well as the plate in similar position or vertical to the movement. Unlike the ball valve type, the butterfly valve is constantly present in the movement; thus there is always a moderate drop in the pressure in the movement regardless of the valve's position.
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.
It is useful to say how counterfeit valves masquerading as the original. One of the techniques - misspelling the names of famous companies, such as, Bogati instead of Matca-Norca. Formally, this is not fake, because the original brand is not used. There are cases of writing only the names of countries, for example, USA, instead of adopting a made in Italy. The distortion of the famous logo, placing it, for example, not a diamond, but a square or a circle, also serves to confuse the buyer. Evidence of fraud may be the absence of any of the markings required for specific manufacturers. The sale of gas valves, and found such a primitive form of deception, as replacement faucet handles on native yellow - gas (gas valves are more expensive). Price savings may be too high, so choose the ball valves are safer from the range of recognized brands.
In standard valves, when it is given a command to open to a certain point, there is no feedback to verify that the valve has opened to that position. With a valve positioner, the command is given and the valve positioner reads the opening, verifying the position and readjusting until it gets it to the exact position needed. This allows for great precision in the adjustment.
In addition to the valve positioners, valve products themselves deserve our attention. There are many categories. Among all those valve types, the check valve is one of the main kinds. It is used to close off piping and to prevent backflow. Backflow occurs when the substance in the pipe flows in the opposite direction when the valve is closed. There are many forms of this type of valves such as ball check valves, stop-check valve, cone check valves, and disk check valve and so on.
