The special designed sludge ball valves have been proven reliable and have a history of longevity. The sludge ball valves have a self-cleaning action for rags and other materials which would normally block other types of valves. The V-RAM ball valves have been used in municipal sludge cake pumps for over 30,000 hours with no design or wear failures. The effective wear surface of the ball valve is 50 times that of poppet valves. With easy maintenance in mind the ball valve components are easily accessible and can be replaced within 2 to 3 minutes after the pump is opened.
