1 inch (DN25) stainless steel wafer ball valve can come with various actuation methods, such as manual (lever or gear), electric, or pneumatic actuators, depending on the specific application requirements.
Tips: Does a wafer ball valve need a drain?
A wafer ball valve typically does not require a separate drain, as it is designed for efficient on/off control of fluid flow. Wafer valves are compact and installed between flanges, securing the valve in the pipeline. Drainage is often addressed through the system design rather than the valve itself. However, specific applications and system requirements may dictate the need for additional features such as a drain. If the fluid being handled is prone to accumulation or if drainage is crucial for system maintenance, a drain valve may be installed separately. Ultimately, the decision to incorporate a drain depends on the specific operational needs and considerations of the fluid system in which the wafer ball valve is employed.
