Modeling and FEA Analysis of Ball Valve
Parth Mandanaka,  Krishna M Tadvi,  Prof. Hitesh Raiyani
A valve is a mechanical device which regulates either the flow or pressure of the fluid. Among the different types of valves, high pressure ball valve finds use in certain application like industrial hydraulics and marine hydraulics. The present study involves designing the high pressure valve of nominal diameter 25mm (DN 25 and PN 350). When the flow line exceeds 150bar, the valves are known as high pressure valves. With the increasing the pressure, the design of various components of the valve become critical. The designing of high pressure ball valve components depends on pressure, temperature ratings and also other factors. The design calculation is done for sealing cup, ball, connection adaptor, valve housing and operating lever. The maximum stress and deflection is calculated for different sealing cup materials under high pressure from research case study.
