Learn about 3-Way Brass Ball Valves
Valworx electric actuated 3-way lead free brass ball valves are used to control the flow of water, air, oil, and other media compatible with the materials of construction. Ideal where lead free and NSF approved construction are required for potable drinking water as well as other industrial applications. These full port 3-way valves are typically used as a diverter or selector valves.
The most popular air actuator type for operating a brass 3-way ball valve is the rack and pinion design because of they are known for their durability and reliability. Air pressure applied to the spring return or double acting actuator rotates the output drive, turning the ball 90 degrees which changes the L-port or T-port flow configuration.
These full port 3-way valves are available in L-port or T-port designs. One quarter turn of the ball changes the valve position. Multiport valves can be used for mixing, selector or diverter valve applications. These 3-way lead free valves can be operated with the latch locking lever or ISO 5211 direct mount to an electric or air actuator. Certified to NSF/ANSI 372, NSF 61 sect. F/G drinking water.
