Learn About 3-Way Stainless Steel Ball Valves
Valworx electric actuators use a motor and gears to rotate an output drive. The output drive can be used to change the position or flow path of a 3-way stainless ball valve. Our L-port and T-port 3-way valves are direct mounted to the electric actuator, saving both space and cost.
Air actuated 3-way ball valves provide a rugged and durable method of controlling the flow of water, air, oil and other compatible media. Applying an air pressure signal to the pneumatic actuator will rotate the output, changing the position of the valve. Pneumatically actuated using spring return or double acting air actuators available in Scotch Yoke or Rack & Pinion design.
Three port ball valves are available in L-port or T-port flow patterns. One quarter turn of the ball changes the valve position and flow path. Multi-port 3-way valves allow for mixing, bypassing or use as a diverter valve. These ball valves can be operated with the latch lock hand lever or direct mounted to electric actuators or pneumatic actuators.
