Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about ball valves

  • Are ball valves suitable for food, dairy, beverage, and pharmaceutical applications?

Response:

Only if they have a cavity-filled seal (encapsulated seal) or available ports for cleaning with CIP/SIP.

The common ball valve has a dead space between the ball and valve body and the product can get trapped in this dead space of the valve and bacterial growth could be possible. 

 

  • Are all Tri-Clamp® ball valves sanitary or hygienic?

Response:

Not necessarily. In the market there are ball valves with Tri-Clamp® end connections that are not sanitary because they do not have the cavity-filled seal.

We recommend checking the specifications and drawings of these valves before you buy them.
