Cryogenic Ball Valve
Middleeast is a leading and fast-growing cryogenic ball valve supplier in Cyprus. We supply to Limassol, Larnaca, Nicosia and Famagusta. A cryogenic ball valve is a type of valve specifically designed for use in low-temperature environments, typically below -150°C. A cryogenic ball valve is a type of quarter-turn valve that uses a ball-shaped disk to control the flow of fluid through a pipe. The ball has a hole drilled through the center that is aligned with the flow of fluid when the valve is open, and perpendicular to the flow when the valve is closed. The valve is operated by a handle or lever that rotates the ball 90 degrees to switch between the open and closed positions. Ball valves are widely used because they are relatively inexpensive, easy to operate, and have a low-pressure drop. They are suitable for a wide range of liquids and gases and can handle high pressure and low temperature. These valves are made from materials that can withstand extremely low temperatures, such as stainless steel or super alloys, and feature special seals and lubricants that can also withstand low temperatures. Cryogenic ball valves are used in applications such as liquefied natural gas (LNG) storage and transportation, cryogenic fluid transfer, and other industrial processes that involve extremely low temperatures.
Middleeast is the largest cryogenic ball valve supplier in Cyprus. While manufacturing, we keep in mind the industrial standards and maintain the quality standards of the valves.
- Handle or Lever
- Cryogenic ball valves are specifically designed to operate in extremely low-temperature environments, typically below -150°C, making them suitable for a wide range of cryogenic applications such as liquefied natural gas (LNG) storage and transportation, cryogenic fluid transfer, and other industrial processes.
- These valves are typically made from materials such as stainless steel or super alloys that can withstand the extreme temperatures and pressure of cryogenic applications, providing long-term reliability.
- They typically use special low-temperature resistant seals, such as PTFE or other materials, to prevent leakage and maintain a tight seal even at low temperatures.
- They are easy to operate, requiring only a quarter-turn to open and close. This makes them easy to use in remote or automated systems.
- These valves have a low pressure drop, which means that they do not significantly reduce the flow rate of the fluid passing through them. This is important in applications where high flow rates are required.
- Cryogenic ball valves come in a variety of sizes and connection types, such as flanged, butt-weld, and threaded, to meet the needs of different cryogenic applications.
- LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) Industry
- Oil & Gas Industry
- Chemical Industry
- Aerospace Industry
- Food Industry
- Pharmaceutical Industry
- Cryogenic ball valves are used to control the flow of LNG in pipelines, storage tanks, and loading/unloading facilities, allowing for the safe and efficient storage and transportation of LNG at temperatures as low as -162°C.
- These valves are used to control the flow of cryogenic fluids such as liquid nitrogen, liquid oxygen, and liquid argon in pipelines and transfer systems, allowing for the safe and efficient transfer of these fluids at extremely low temperatures.
- They are used in gas processing plants to control the flow of natural gas liquids (NGLs) and other cryogenic fluids, allowing for the safe and efficient separation and purification of these fluids.
- They are used in the chemical industry to control the flow of cryogenic fluids in the production of chemicals such as nitrogen and oxygen.
- Cryogenic ball valves are used in the food industry for freezing and storing food products at extremely low temperatures.
- These ball valves are used in the pharmaceutical industry for the storage and transportation of cryogenic fluids such as liquid nitrogen, liquid helium, and liquid argon.
- They are used in the aerospace industry to control the flow of cryogenic fluids in the production of rocket propellants and other aerospace applications.
