Why Use Composite Ball Valves vs Metal Ball Valves

Corrosion resistance is at the top of the list when it comes to ball valves and managing maintenance costs. Your industry cannot risk corrosive chemicals getting in the way of the manufacturing process, even when those chemicals are an integral part of it. One way to avoid hazardous materials corroding your valves is to use composite ball valves instead of metal.

Composite Ball Valves Have Superior Strength

Many metals can be strong on their own, but when subjected to caustics, acids, and bleaches, they begin to corrode and weaken. Composite ball valves are resistant to the corrosive nature of such harsh chemicals, maintaining their structure and function, and composite valve bodies do not corrode under insulation (CUI).

Composite Is a Lightweight Material

Though the material is strong, composite ball valves weigh less than their metal counterparts. Being lighter, they are easier to install and less expensive to ship. Typically weight and installation time is half than that of their metal valve counterparts. This makes them more versatile for a wide range of industries:

  • Chemical manufacturers
  • Energy (i.e. Green Hydrogen, Biofuels)
  • Mining (i.e. Lithium, Critical Minerals, Lithium Recycling)
  • Petrochemical
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Semiconductors
  • Steel processing

Composite Ball Valves Are Long-Lasting

Due to not experiencing the corrosion that metal ball valves are subjected to, composite ball valves can last a lot longer. Oily water, sump discharge, makeup water, chemical rinses, bleaches, acids, and dozens of other hazardous and non-hazardous fluids can pass through these valves without causing an issue. Many clients will choose a proposal with composite parts because it's a great place for them to save on a product that will last.
