Downstream pressure relief ball
Habonim ball downstream pressure relief is designed with a diagonal hole in the downstream
sphere toward the bottom of the ball. In the open position the flow runs smoothly through
the valve. When the valve is closed the downstream pressure is vented through the diagonal
tunnel and out via a third port incorporated into the valve body so that the relieved pressure
can be diverted safely to a secured area. This feature is mainly used for pressure gauges and
instrumentation service. This design eliminates the need to install an additional downstream
pressure vent valve.

Habonim 'CIP' ball code is mainly used in sanitary and biopharm applications. in clean
applications the main ball valve problem is contamination caused by impurities trapped
in the cavity between the ball’s outer sphere and the valve body’s inside diameter. To overcome
this problem Habonim has designed a special ball that allows the stream to clean the valve
cavity thoroughly during the CIP/SIP process, with the valve in the full open position. The bottom
line: Bidirectional and streamlined flow with a high Cv, and self-cleaning of hidden cavities.
With the valve in the open
position, special tunnels flush
the valve cavity constantly
