Ball Valves For AW1 Actuators
Explore Tameson’s wide range of ball valves for AW1 actuators from various global manufacturers. 2-way and 3-way ball valves are available that can be used in various applications like industrial equipment, irrigation systems, solar water heaters, and heating & ventilation systems.
2-way ball valves have 2 ports, an inlet, and an outlet. The media flows from one direction to the other, and the valve is used to open or close the flow. A 2-way ball valve is commonly called a shut-off valve.
3-way ball valves have three ports. They are available in two design types: L-port and T-port. This refers to the bore design in the ball, which is the media flow path. With a 3-way ball valve T-port or L-port, it is possible to mix, distribute, or divert the media flow. A 3-way T-port valve can be used for mixing media from two inlets into a single outlet or for distributing one inlet to two outlets. The 3-way L-port ball valve is designed for flow direction control. The L-port valve has a 90 degree bore inside of the ball, hence the name L-port. An example of an application is to have two inputs from separate tanks and one output, and you want to only use one of the inputs but always the one output. It is important to know your bore design to ensure your desired media flow, as the ports can be in different positions. The pressure inlet for 3-way ball valves is typically on the center borehole to avoid leakage unless defined otherwise in the product specifications.
