ball valve replacement

If your plant environment has been using ball valves and replacing them regularly, there is a better way. At Everlasting Valve Company, we have been designing and manufacturing valves for all industrial solutions. Our valves are tougher, stronger, and last longer than any valves you may be using now. We are your ball valve replacement company.

Ball Valve Replacement

How often does your company find itself replacing valves? For many, it’s happening all too often. Whether you are regularly scheduling outages or shutdowns to deal with batch ball valve replacement or you’re experiencing unexpected and unscheduled downtime when a ball valve breaks, it’s impacting the profitability and productivity of your plant.

Frequent ball valve replacement and repair is costly. Even when you’re buying cheap, mass-produced valves, buying them in bulk thanks to regular breakage or wearing out adds up. When you are dealing with ball valve replacement every month, or even more frequently, it’s time to consider something different.

Everlasting Valve Company has the solution you need to every ball valve replacement problem. Our valves are made to last longer, saving you time and money. The total cost of ownership is low with these valves. You receive high-quality valves that have lasted for years in challenging environments. Once you’ve invested, you can set it and forget it. You can leave the valves to do the work you need without requiring repair or maintenance. Here’s how our valves work, and what they can do to transform your ball valve replacement situation.

What is a Ball Valve?

Industrial ball valves are a form of a quarter-turn valve. Ball valves are designed with special measures that permit only a 90-degree rotation, necessary for opening and closing the valve. There is a pivoting ball inside that directs the flow of whatever comes through it. Ball valves are usually very durable and reliable. They will close securely even after many uses. When you need a valve for shutoff and control applications, a ball valve is a great choice.

Compared to a gate valve, the ball valve has very little resistance to whatever is flowing through it in the fully open position. Like a gate valve, the ball valve is generally in the fully open or fully closed position.

Because ball valves have a flexible ease of operation, and also tend to be versatile, they are excellent in many industrial applications. The valve body is typically stainless steel or brass as well as PVC or CPVC. Body styles differ. You can find ball valves in a 3-piece design or a 1-piece design.

Applications for Ball Valves

Ball valves are excellent for flow as well as pressure control and shut off. They do well with corrosive fluids, normal liquids, slurries, and gases. For all applications in the oil and gas industries, ball valves are everywhere. You can also find many in manufacturing sectors, such as chemical storage or power generation.

Why Everlasting Valves Are Better

Ball valves, like all valves, wear out over time. They fill with particulate, clog up, or no longer give you a tight seal. Organizations need to be replace them, which means stopping production, which means downtime. When looking for a good ball valve replacement, don’t invest in the same company again. There is a better way.

Using Everlasting Valve’s rotating-disc-valve technology, our valves give you design solutions unlike any other. All of our valves – including process valves, diverter valves, bulk material valves, and boiler blowdown valves – feature a unique open-body design. The body is self-cleaning as the lever arm and disc churn out particulate that usually sits there and clogs up other valves.

Our valves get tighter the more they are used – they wear in, not out. Over the years, we have refined, upgraded and optimized the mechanisms and components on which our original severe-service valve was constructed. Don’t just take our word for it. Once you contact us, we come out to your site and evaluate your operational environment. From there, we can build you custom-designed valves specific to your plant’s operation.

Everlasting Valves As Your Ball Valve Replacement

Our valves are stronger and more durable than any ball valve you can find on the market. Our valves aren’t ball valves themselves, but rather a self-lapping, rotating disc valve with a unique open body design. They clean and maintain themselves through use, improving their seal over time. The rotating, self-lapping disc clears away process material.

Why Invest In Everlasting Valves?

We understand the temptation to buy cheap valves as you need them. It may feel like a small amount of money every time you make the purchase, but it’s easy to lose track of exactly how much you are spending. When you add it all up, however, you will probably find that those cheap valves are costing you more than you think. The cost of cheap valves is not only direct but indirect when you consider the cost of downtime caused by the need to replace and repair equipment.

Many cheap valves and their materials are sourced from places with low quality requirements. The lack of integrity of those cheap valves is why you are dealing with ball valve replacement too often. They’re made of inexpensive materials that will not last the test of time, nor stand up to tough, demanding environments. When you buy cheap valves, you’re sacrificing quality. The cost of replacing those valves as well as taking your plant offline and bringing it back online again may persuade you to try Everlasting Valve products that will keep your plant running with great results.
