Key features of effective ball segment valves
- Precise flow regulation: Essential for maintaining the integrity of the material being processed.
- Durability under pressure: Solid materials, particularly abrasive ones, can cause significant wear and tear on valve components. At Techno-G, our valves are constructed from robust materials like stainless steel or 3D-printed Titanium, ensuring a long service life even under challenging conditions.
- Minimal dead space: Ensuring the complete discharge of materials is crucial. Ball segment valves with minimal dead space prevent material build-up and contamination.
- Customization options: Every application has unique requirements. Our valves, for example, are available in sizes ranging from DN100 up to DN500 to suit various needs.
- Advanced sealing technology: The inflatable seal, a standout feature in our valves, provides an airtight closure, ensuring zero leakage and maintaining the purity of the material.
Applications and industries
Valves for handling solids are important in a variety of industries. They help keep things safe and clean in industries such as:
- Pharmaceutical sector: Ensures safe and hygienic handling of powders and granules.
- Food industry: Critical for maintaining quality and safety standards.
- Chemical industry: Benefits from durability and robustness, especially with abrasive or corrosive materials.
- Mineral industry: Relies on the valves’ durability and robustness for handling challenging materials.
- Other industries: Various applications in additional sectors, utilizing the valves for their specific material handling needs.

"Exploring Coldspray 3D Printing For Ball Segment Valves"
The Techno-G Ball Segment Valve (BSV) is a versatile solution for pharmaceutical and fine chemical processes, handling a variety of solids. Ideal for vacuum dryers, reactors, and centrifuges, it serves as both an inlet and discharge valve. It handles non-free flowing, abrasive, or moist and adhesive products, providing a vacuum and pressure- tight seal. Its cGMP-compliant, corner-free design allows the ball segment to move clear of the product flow path when opened. The design minimizes dead-space in the process area and can be customized with non-DIN flange connections for most reactor vessels.
