For some industrial fluid process operations, one of the shortcomings of ball valves can be their propensity to trap small amounts of process fluid when they are operated. This is troublesome on two fronts. Firstly, a process that changes media between operations can be subject to contamination from the trapped fluid. Secondly, the fluid trap is detrimental to any attempt to sanitize the process line. A variant of the common ball valve, a self-cleaning flushable version, eliminates costly downtime required to disassemble, clean and reassemble traditional valves. Self-cleaning flushable ball valves, from PBM Valve Solutions, can be used in a variety of processes including food, beverage, paints, resins, chemicals, consumer products, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics.
