  • Cut off the electricity and gas.

  • Saperate the operation parts and the bracket.

  • Make sure that the pressure of the pipelines that connecting with the compression ball valve has been release.

  • The disassemble individual parts can be clean by dipping. Metal parts with non-metal parts that have not been decompose, can be scrub with a clean, fine cloth that impregnate with cleaning agent (to prevent fibers from falling off and adhering to the parts). When cleaning, all grease, dirt, glue, dust, etc. adhering to the surface must be remove.

  • Use grease for lubrication. Grease should be compatible with ball valve metal materials, rubber parts, plastic parts and working medium. When the working medium is gas, for example, special 221 grease can be use. Apply a thin layer of grease on the surface of the seal installation groove, apply a thin layer of grease on the rubber seal, apply a thin layer of grease on the sealing surface and friction surface of the valve stem

  • When assembling, it should not be allow to pollute, adhere or stay on the surface of the parts or enter the cavity with metal chips, fibers, grease (except those specified for use), dust and other impurities, foreign matter, etc.
