Key Specifications / Features
Forged steel ball valves are mainly used in long-distance oil and natural gas pipelines and other high-pressure industrial pipelines. Due to the special characteristics of long-distance pipelines, forged steel ball valves used in long-distance pipelines need to consider the factors of pipeline stress they need to bear, and factors of long-term service reliability of outdoor environment, etc.
Forged Steel Ball Valves are available in floating and trunnion mounted ball valve, sizes from 1/2″-40 inch.
Forged steel is an alloy of carbon and iron that is compressed under extreme pressure to make a very hard and strong substance.
provides uniformity of composition and structure. Forging lead to metallurgical recrystalisation and grain refinement due to thermal cycle and deformation process. This strengthens the resulting steel products, especially in terms of impact and shear strength.
Forged steel is generally stronger and more reliable than castings and plate steel due to the fact that the grain flows of the steel are altered, conforming to the shape of the part.
Some of the commonly used material for manufacturing forged steel ball valves:
ASTM A350 LF2
ASTM A182 F304/F316/F304L/F316L/F347
ASTM A182 F51/F50/F55/F60
