Float ball valves can be called a type of valve, but their use and construction differ greatly from those of general valves. Float ball valves open and close automatically according to the water level in the aquarium.
Therefore, ball taps are usually used only when you want to keep the water level of the aquarium above a certain level or when you want to automatically supply water to the aquarium.
The most frequent use of the cooling tower is to supplement water to the cooling tower.
Float ball valves are very useful for replenishing the cooling water in cooling towers.
Float ball valves are used in places where the water supply needs to be automatic, but the level does not need to be strictly controlled, and a certain level is required.
The most typical use is for water retention in cooling towers. Since water is constantly evaporating in cooling towers, the water level drops, but strict level control is not necessary.
Therefore, float ball valves are often used because they can maintain the water level above a certain level and are very easy and convenient to use, requiring only the water piping to be connected.
Float ball valves, as the name implies, have a large ball that floats on the surface of the water at all times.
The buoyancy automatically changes the flow path of water inside the float ball valves, so that when the ball is lowered, water flows out at a high rate, and when the float ball valve is refilled and the ball tap is raised, the amount of water flowing out gradually decreases until it eventually shuts off completely.
Because of this simple structure, float ball valves are very often unnoticed and used for years after installation. However, they are not suited for strict control of water volume, as they operate according to the surface of the water. It can only be used to maintain the water surface above a certain level.
Another feature is that they are often used for long periods of time without being maintained, resulting in slight water leakage that goes unnoticed for many years.
Although some manufacturers can replace parts, the quality of water used for cooling water is not that good, and in severe cases, the water may be heavily contaminated with silica, algae, slime, etc. In such cases, it may be better to replace the entire unit.
