Pipeline Ball Valves Natural gas pipelines are a very large and promising market for valves. Monitoring of long-distance pipelines is very important. Some companies have developed smart devices that users can use to detect pipelines.
Such as "smart pig" technology. This robot can detect the wall thickness and even the corrosion point. However, the detection device has the requirement of the diameter of the pipeline, so the ball valve has become the preferred product of the long-distance pipeline company. On the other hand, long-distance pipelines require that the wall thickness of the valves be as thin as possible, and the valve materials have high yield toughness and corrosion resistance so as to adapt to the requirements of pipeline expansion and contraction, steering, and regional environmental changes.
The most important point is that the managers of long-distance pipelines require that the purchased valve life must be longer than the life of the pipeline itself.
