What’s the difference between a ball and a butterfly valve?

Both the ball and butterfly valve have some strong similarities, including both featuring a quarter-turn rotary valve and they are used to control most types of gases and liquids across a wide range of temperatures and pressures.

Ball valves

In its simplest terms, a ball valve is a ball with a hole running through it and turning the valve will change the position of the ball will either block, partially block or complete the line of flow through the valve.

Butterfly valves

A butterfly valve is a disk mounted on a rotating shaft, and when fully closed, the disk will fully block the flow line if fully opened or partially block is the disk is positioned at an angle.

The differences

Typically ball valves are a more reliable seal as it will fully restrict the flow, so perfect for controlling gas flows, whereas, butterfly valves will are common in large volume water systems or controlling dirty liquid applications.

Each application has its own specific requirements, and our experts will help you identify the correct part for the job. For expert knowledge on any of our products, call the leading Burkert Distributors today on 0151 343 9966 or email sales@finecontrols.com.
