Tips: Do wafer ball valves need gaskets?
Wafer ball valves typically do not require gaskets in the traditional sense. These valves are designed to be sandwiched between flanges, and their construction includes a wafer-style body that fits between the flanges without the need for additional gaskets. The valve's design provides a tight seal when the flanges are tightened together. The absence of a gasket simplifies installation and maintenance.
However, it's important to note that while wafer ball valves may not use traditional gaskets, they may still incorporate other sealing elements, such as O-rings or elastomeric seals, to ensure a proper seal and prevent leakage. Users should follow the manufacturer's guidelines and specifications for the specific valve model to understand the sealing mechanisms employed and ensure proper installation and performance.
