Failure Analysis

Leaking Stainless Steel Ball Valve in a Pipeline

leaking ball valve

An investigation was performed on a 1-inch stainless steel (SS) ball valve in a pipeline to determine the cause of leaking/failure.

Valve leaking was caused by deformation of the valve body seat that provided a small leak pathway. We investigated the cause of the various issues with the valve.
