Introduction of API Ball Valve

The API in valves refers to the American Petroleum Institute. There are more than 900 standards that specify the quality and requirements of pipes, valves, facility management, environmental protection, and more. 

There are many versions of the API and one of the most common is the API 6D. This standard covers the specifications and recommendations for the design, manufacture, inspecting, and documentation of ball, check, plug, and gate valves. This means an API ball valve went through intensive quality control after manufacturing.

Because of its reliability, this ball valve is used in a spectrum of applications. IT is commonly found in almost any industry, including petroleum, natural gas, chemical, and hydrocarbon processing among others.
