Brass Faucet And Boiler Ball Valves
Explore Tameson’s wide range of manual 2-way brass faucets or boiler ball valves from various global manufacturers. A faucet or boiler ball valve is used to drain, discharge, or fill a system. The 2-way function means it has two ports, an inlet and an outlet, and a ball with a bore in it. 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 and allows 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 on whether a two-way faucet or boiler 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.
The brass housing makes the valves suitable for a wide variety of media, such as water, neutral, gaseous, and non-aggressive, liquid media, mineral oils, and compressed air. The brass housing also makes them economical and able to withstand high pressure, high temperature, and high flow rate applications. Brass is more resistant to contaminated media compared to other types of housing material and provides reliable sealing even in the case of dirty media. They can withstand high pressure, high temperature, and high flow rates. They are also economical due to their simple and robust design, low cost, and low maintenance needs. Due to these advantages, brass faucets are used in many residential and industrial applications.
Faucet and boiler applications require drainage, discharge, or filling of a media for the system. Therefore, they are often called ball valves with drains or fill ball valves. The purpose and operating principle of a faucet ball valve and the boiler ball valve are the same. Typically, the input side has a threaded connection, and the output side has a hose barb connection. Depending on the media, the output hose barb can be connected to a hose and routed to a different area. Therefore, the hose barb can be detached in certain designs. These valves can be used for water (not steam), neutral media, gaseous and non-aggressive media, liquid media, mineral oils, and compressed air applications. A ball valve faucet typically has an angle from the input to the output, while a boiler ball valve is typically straight.
