The pressure test of the ball check valve refers to the inspection of the strength and sealing performance of the ball check valve to verify whether it meets the design requirements and service conditions.

Ball Check Valve

The method of ball check valve pressure test has the following steps:

  • Test state: the sphere is half open, one end is introduced into the test medium, and the other end is closed.
  • Strength test: Check that the valve body and bonnet are free from leakage.
  • Sealing test: Turn the ball several times, close the valve, open the closed end to check the sealing surface, no visible leakage is allowed. Then introduce the test medium from the other end, repeat the above test, if there is no leakage, it is qualified.

Ball check valve pressure test standards have the following points:

  • The test medium can be water, air, inert gas or other non-corrosive liquids, and the temperature of the test medium should not exceed 125°C.
  • The test pressure of the shell should be 1.5 times of the nominal pressure of the valve. The pressure holding time is different according to the valve specification, generally 1 to 3 minutes, and no visible leakage is allowed.
  • The pressure of the tightness test should be 1.1 times the nominal pressure of the valve, and the pressure holding time is generally 15 to 120 seconds depending on the valve specification, and no visible leakage is allowed.

The above is just a simple understanding of the pressure test knowledge of ball check valves. How do you need to buy check valves? Contact us, VALTECCN check valve supplier and manufacturer, delivery after pressure test, 1 year after sale.
