How to Size a threaded Ball Valve:

The size of the pipe that the valve will thread into determines the size of the Valve. So a 1” Ball Valve will thread into a 1” Pipe and a 2" Valve will fit a 2" Pipe, and so on.

What is a Ball Valve used for?

Whenever flow needs to be controlled and a simple on flow or off flow is required. By partially closing the valve flow rate can also be regulate.  SS Ball valves are used if flow needs to be shut off. This allows pipes or hoses to be disconnected without any spillage.

How does a ball valve work?

A hallow bored out pivoting ball is turned with a handle thus controlling the flow through it. When the handle is running parallel to the valve, flow is open, and when the handle it at right angles to the pipe, flow is closed. Also called a quarter turn ball valve, since the handle only has to be turned 90 Degree's to open or close flow. When the handle is inline with the ball valve and pipe, flow is open, and when it is at right angles to the valve and pipe, then flow is closed. 

One Piece Ball Valve vs Two Piece Ball Valve vs Three Piece Ball valve

The 2 piece is the most commonly used valve and it has one body joint making it a two piece design, as opposed to the 1 piece valves. The two piece body also allows this valve to be manufactured with a larger ball making this a full bore valve as opposed to the 1 piece which is a reduced bore.

The 3 piece, having 3 body sections, can be taken apart the quickest and with the most ease. By loosening the body bolts the valve divides into 3 sections leaving the threaded portions still connected to the pipe, allowing you to remove the center portion containing the ball for easy servicing and cleaning. The obvious advantage here is that you do not have to remove the whole valve from the application for cleaning; you can just take the center portion leaving the other two sections still threaded to your system.
