Uses of Three-way ball valves

A Three Way Ball Valve is a form of quarter-turn valve that controls flow through a hollow, perforated, and pivoting Ball. It is open when the ball's hole is parallel to the flow and locked when the valve handle is pivoted 90 degrees.

While the valve is open, the handle is flat in line with the flow, and when it is closed, it is perpendicular to it, allowing for simple visual confirmation of the valve's status.

What Are 3-Way Ball Valves?

Dwyer Instruments has a wide selection of 3-way ball valves in a range of colors, including brass, stainless steel, and rubber. We also provide a variety of end connections, such as NPT (National Pipe Tapered threads), tri-clamp, flanged, and plug.

A multi-port valve, also known as a 3-way ball valve, has three ports or holes, one of which is shared by the other two. This third port allows the fluid to flow in a different direction, allowing the valve to have one inlet and two ports, or two inlets and one outlet. They often combine flow shut-off and path control in a single valve body, making them convenient and cost-effective.

 

How does it work?

The ball of the valve is drilled into a "T" or a "L" shape. The “T” ports, also known as mixing style valves, are used to guide liquid to various outlets. The flow would enter through two ports before exiting through a single outlet. Diverting style valves have “L” ports that are used to pull media from various outlets.

 

What are 3-way valves used for?

3-way ball valves have greater flexibility than a conventional 2-way valve, allowing them to control movement in more complicated conditions. This kind of valve is often used for the following applications:

·        Cut-off or shut-off of the river

·        Blocking one direction of flow while allowing another to continue

·        Flow from two separate positions is combined or mixed.

·        Dividing liquid from a single location into two outgoing locations by diverting discharge from one location to another

·        Flow between two outgoing positions alternates.

For precise positioning, Dwyer's 3-way ball valves can be configured with pneumatic or electric actuators. Our Series SN solenoid valves can also be used to electrically adjust the air supply pressure between the air supply ports and limit switches for remote control.
