Three Piece Ball Valves are designed so that they can be completely disassembled for cleaning and can be reoriented in increments of 90 degrees of rotation for easy access on any pipe. The main advantage of a 3 piece valve is its ability to be easily taken apart for cleaning. In fact the valve can remain threaded into the pipe and the center portion can be removed and service, without having to remove the entire valve from the application
All wetted parts are stainless steel 316 and PTFE seats and seals.
The body is divided into 3 parts. The center portion contains the ball valve and it is flanked by two sections that each house the thread.
