We offer Ball Foot Valve made of PVC with a spherical seal. The valve has two types of connection, socket, and threaded connection. The maximum working temperature is not more than 45°C and the maximum working pressure is 150Psi.
The PVC Ball Foot Valve is injection molded from PVC and is corrosion and impact resistant. The foot valve is usually installed in the water intake section of the pump. There are many water inlets and reinforcement strips on the valve body, which can reduce the inflow of large solid particles into the pump and damage the impeller. The valve is installed in a vertical position and the ball is sealed by gravity.
Mounted in a position other than the vertical position, the ball seals under 2 – 4 psi of backpressure.
Please note the arrows on the valve body indicating the direction of flow when installing the valve.
The foot valve is to prevent water from flowing back and is effectively a check valve. Generally installed at the end of the pump, the foot valve filters out impurities protects the pump from clogging and performs checks to ensure that the inlet pipe to the centrifugal pump is filled with water and fills the pump.
