    • Uses:
    • ● Used mixing valves or as diverter or selector valves.
    • Description:
    • ● Three way Ball valves have 3 Ports and come in two configuration styles, the L-Port and the T-Port.
    • Advantages:
    • ● An Easy way to select flow from 1 of 2 sources or to divert flow to 1 of 2 outlets.
    •  An easy way to combine flow from 2 sources.
    • One Item replaces a Tee fitting and multiple ball valves, which would be needed to do the same function.
    • Operation:
    • ● They are easy to use, with a quarter turn of the handle flow can be diverted from one port to another.
    • Reduced Port:
    • ● A reduced port is standard for a 3 way ball valve.
    • Threaded:
    • Will connect easily to any application with threads.
    • Material:
    • ● Reliable and made from long lasting stainless steel 316, these valve work well in most applications.

     

     Different Types:  

     

    • ● 3 way ball valves are used to are used to divert flow.
    • ● They have 3 ports and come in two Styles "L-Port" and "T-Port", depending on how the Ball is drilled.
    • ● The L-Port has two openings drilled at 90 degree's
    • ● The T-Port has 3 openings drilled in a T-Shape.

     

    - The "L-Port" - The Diverter Valve (Input Selector)

     

    • ● Allows for flow to occur between two ports in an L-shaped formation.
    • ● Also known as a diverter valve because they are most often used to divert flow form a common inlet into one of two outlets.
    • ● Can also funtion as an input selector for a pump switching between one of two sources.
    • ● They can shut off all flow.

     

    - The "T-Port"- The Mixing Valve

     

    • ● Allows for flow to occur between any two ports as well as all three ports simultaneously in a T-Formation.
    • ● You can direct flow to either of the 2 ports just like the L-Port, and you can have flow through all ports simultaneously. 
    • ● Also called Mixing Valves because they are widely used to mix the flow coming from two sources.
    • ● They cannot shut off all flow. (They can allow all ports to flow like a Tee Fitting.)
