Ball Valves are either made of metal or plastic and may be controlled either by handles, levers, pedals, and wheels or may be controlled mechanically. Normally, the exterior components are either plastic or metal and are known as chair and the interior part generally contains rubber and plastic valves for an effective control of the flow of fluids.

Body is the inner region of the valve that fits on the seat and controls the flow by opening and closing either partly or wholly depending on the need of the flow speed.
Ball valves are often quarter turn valves (as we flip the lever by 90 degrees to start or stop the stream) and use a hollow, perforated and pivoting ball that’s also called as a floating ball. It’s through this valve that the flow of fluids occurs. When the lever or handle is turned to 90 degrees, the hole of the ball becomes aligned with the pipe opening and begins the flow.
There are various types of ball valves which are extensively utilized in a variety of industries depending upon their designs, sizes and pressure handling capacities.
Full port valves are used if there’s a requirement of this free flow speed of fluids. This valve has an oversized ball with a huge hole to permit enormous amounts to flow through it.
