Electric Brass Ball Valves
Explore Tameson’s wide range of 2-way electric brass ball valves from various global manufacturers. A 2-way electric brass ball valve comes with a brass housing, and the valve has two ports: an inlet and an outlet, and a ball with a bore in it. These ball valves are operated by an electric actuator that turns the ball 90 degrees, which is why they are often called quarter-turn ball valves or shut-off valves. An electric-actuated ball valve can be broken down into two main components, namely, the electric actuator (servo motor) and the ball valve. Brass electric ball valves are known for their simple operation, reliability, long service life, and wide range of applications. Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc and has great mechanical properties. Electric brass ball valves are durable, with very less leakage over their lifespan, even if they have not been used for a long period of time. These valves can be used for automating applications with drinking water, gas, mineral oils, compressed air, and many other non-aggressive media. But they are not suitable for use with salt water or distilled water due to the risk of dezincification. Dezincification reduces the mechanical strength of brass by causing the zinc to be removed from the alloy resulting in a porous structure. However, electric brass ball valves are more resistant to contaminated media compared to other types of housing material and provides reliable sealing even in the case of dirty media. They can withstand high pressure, high temperature, and high flow rates. They are also economical due to their simple and robust design, low cost, and low maintenance needs. Due to these advantages, electric brass ball valves are used in many residential and industrial applications. Some common applications include controlling domestic hot and cold water systems, steam applications, irrigation systems, natural gas systems, marine industries, fire protection applications, and chemical industries. An actuated brass ball valve is a great way to automate these applications.
