The valve material needs to be chosen based on the medium, temperatures and pressures. Brass is the most common and widely used for media such as water, (compressed) air, oils and non-aggressive media. For aggressive media stainless steel and PVC ball valves are the right choice. The stainless steel ball valves provide high quality application with aggressive media, in high pressure systems within a wide operating temperature range.
Regarding connection types, manual ball valves come in threaded, flanged and cutting ring versions. Threaded ball valves include all combinations of ports-F/F = Female/Female, which is the most common, M/F = Male/Female and M/M = Male/Male. Sizes vary from 1/8 to 4 inch threads and from DN 15 to DN 200 flanges.
