What does 600w OG mean on a valve?

A valve rated at 600WOG/150WSP should be able to withstand 600 psi in a water or gas pipe and 150 psi if used in a steam supply system. In Pilar’s case, for a water supply system the valve is rated at 600 psi (lb/pulg2), so it should have no problems up to that pressure.

How are ball valves sized?

The difference between a standard ball valve and a full-port ball valve is in the size of the ball and bore in relation to the nominal pipe size of the valve. For example, the bore size in a 3/4-inch full-port ball valve is 3/4-inch in diameter, while the bore diameter in a standard ball valve is 1/2-inch in diameter.

Are there different size ball valves?

There are four general types of ball valves: full port, standard port, reduced port, and v port. A full port ball valve has an oversized ball so that the hole in the ball is the same size as the pipeline resulting in lower friction loss. Flow is unrestricted, but the valve is larger.

What is face to face dimension of valve?

The face-to-face dimension for flanged Valves is the distance between the extreme ends which are the gasket contact surfaces. End-to-End dimensions apply to flanged Valves where the gasket contact surfaces are not located at the extreme ends of the Valve.

What are the types of ball valves?

There are five general body styles of ball valves: single body, three-piece body, split body, top entry, and welded. The difference is based on how the pieces of the valve—especially the casing that contains the ball itself—are manufactured and assembled.

What does 150 WSP mean on a ball valve?

WSP. WSP stands for Working Steam Pressure and defines the pressure of steam in a system that a ball valve can be used in. The industry uses WSP for bronze ball valves because, as the temperature rises, the strength of the material decreases.

What does CWP stand for on a ball valve?

cold working pressure
CWP (cold working pressure)

How do I know what size ball valve I have?

Valve Size: The valve pipe size is often simply noted in inches, however, you may also find the pipe size noted with a DN prefix. This stands for “diameter nominal” and the number following the prefix is the valve pipe size in millimeters.

What is valve port size?

Port size is the size of the opening that fluid can travel through when the ball valve is in the open position.
