Ball valve is a valve with flow control in the form of a spherical disk. The ball disc has a hole right in the center. The pattern of valve use is adjusted to the needs and desired functions.The basis for valve selection is performance, flow control, and safety. The choice of valve type, design, and material type play a very important role in the performance and reliability of the valve system. Ball valves are usually used to close completely even after years of non-use. Therefore, this type of valve is an excellent choice for shut-off applications. The effect of Valve Position on cavitation pressure drop and determine the minor head loss of ball valves using different types of test methods. For testing the effect of valve position on pressure drop and cavitation using pressure test as the main test method using nitrogen as the medium. Meanwhile, to determine the minor head loss of the ball valve using a simple discharge measurement test method by pumping water from the engine to the ball valve.And dependent variables Pressure drop (∆P), minor loss, residual head of the pump. And the specificationsof the ball valve itself.
