Big Bore Valves
Big Bore Valves And Their Uses
Valves in general are used in piping systems and form quite an integral part of these. They are used to control the direction, flow and pressure of liquids in a system. The thing about valves is that each one has its own purpose. You could require a simple low cost valve, but there may be cases where you require more expensive and complicated valves to carry out a particular task. Big bore valves used in piping systems are quite advantageous as they allow for pipe cleaning operations such as rodding.
Ball valves are a common type of valve that are available as reduced bore or full bore. The full bore valve has an orifice the same width of the pipe it is being entered in to, whereas a reduced bore valve’s diameter is less than that of the pipe. Full bore valves or big bore valves are often more expensive than reduced bore valves. The big ball valves are used where there is critical pressure drop experienced across the valve. Flow meter applications usually make use of bore valves in order to reduce any fluid turbulence that may be experienced upstream of the measuring device.
Valves and their specific uses are aplenty, so it is absolutely essential that you know which valve you require and for what purpose. If you find that you are in need of big bore valves, or any other type of valve for that matter, you are going to need to ensure that you purchase one that is of an excellent quality and able to handle the load of its task.
