very light switch feeling with small torque, stardard flange, not rubbish.
Stainless steel 316 for higher strength and greater corrosion resistance than stainless steel 304
Lockable stainless steel lever handle for manual on/off control
TFM seats reduce the risk of leakage.
Maximum working temperature of 500 degrees Fahrenheit
Flanged connections for bolting to pipes
This class 150 stainless steel 316 inline ball valve has a lockable lever handle and flanged connections on both ends. This valve body is made of stainless steel 316 for higher strength and greater corrosion resistance than stainless steel 304. Stainless steel 316 is sometimes called "marine-grade stainless steel" due to its resistance to chloride corrosion. This valve has a lockable lever handle for manual on/off control. TFM seats reduce the risk of leakage. The valve is full port for reduced friction; its inner diameter is the same as the inner diameter of the connecting pipe for maximum operating efficiency. This valve has flanged ends for bolting to compatible-sized pipe flanges. The maximum working temperature is 500 degrees Fahrenheit.
Ball valves use a spherical disc to control the flow between pipes, tubes, or hoses. Flow is allowed when the hole that pierces the ball-shaped disc is in line with the inlet and outlet of the valve. Flow is blocked when the ball is horizontally swiveled 90 degrees, so that the hole of the ball is perpendicular to the opening of the valve. Ball valves can be referred to as full port or reduced port (also known as regular or standard port) depending on the inner diameter of the valve. A ball valve is full port if the hole of the ball is the same size as the inner diameter of the connecting pipeline (resulting in lower friction) and is reduced port if the hole of the valve is one pipe size smaller than the pipe, resulting in less flow through the valve than through the shaft of the pipe. Ball valves may have a handle or lever that aligns with the ball's position (open or closed) for manual operation. They are primarily used in air, gas, liquid, and steam applications.
