Ball valves can be customized according to a company’s specification.

However, finding appropriate material for the ball valve’s application depends on what the supplier provides. So choose a supplier who offers a wide range of materials and elements.

Care and maintenance
Though ball valves require low maintenance, the contact between the ball and the stem of the valve-handle need to be periodically checked. Also, broken or heavily worn out stem may require valve replacement. Make sure your supplier is able to provide technician services to check the condition of the valves.
