2-Way Ball Valves
Explore Tameson’s wide range of 2-way manual ball valves from various global manufacturers. A 2-way manual ball valve has two ports: an inlet, an outlet, and a ball with a bore. A manual ball valve is operated by turning the handle 90 degrees, so they are also called quarter-turn valves. The handle is connected directly to the ball through the stem. When the handle direction is parallel to the connecting pipe or hose, the ball valve opens, allowing media to flow from the inlet through the bore to the outlet. When the handle direction is perpendicular to the connecting pipe or hose, the valve is closed, obstructing the media flow through the valve. This allows for easy visual identification of whether a two-way manual ball valve is open or closed. Manual ball valves are one of the most common valves due to their simple operation, reliability, long service life, and wide range of applications.
For easy installation, various connection styles are available (threaded, flanged, etc.). A threaded 2-way ball valve is the most common, as they are simply threaded into an existing assembly. 2-way manual ball valves are available in different housing materials like brass, PVC, and stainless steel.
