Manufacturer and Supplier of 3 Way Ball Valve in stainless steel.

The design of 3 way ball valve is such that it is constructed with a hole that goes right through the middle, and the hole is in the shape of a T or an L. Ports of any pair can be connected in the T-valve, or alternatively, all three together. However, the position at 45 degrees that may disconnects all the ports would leave no tolerance for error. Connection to the port in the center from either side port is possible with the L-valve, or alternatively it can disconnect all ports. However, connecting together to the side ports is not possible.

3 or 4 way ball valves are known as multi-port valves, and they are available commercially. The outlets are usually in a plane that is orthogonal to the inlet. Generally, designs in the form of single, two or three piece construction are common in ball valves up to two inch in size. Ball valves of single piece construction are reduced bore and the price is inexpensive compared to other designs. One-piece ball valves are generally disposal. Ball valves of two piece designs are typically of slight reduced bore. These valves can be maintained and repaired, or they can also be disposable after a certain service life. In the case of the design of the 3 piece valve, removal from the connecting pipeline of the ball, seats and stem which are located in the valve center is facilitated. Maintenance and cleaning is allowed for the removal of sediment deposition as well as for the removal and reinstallation of gland packing and seats. Minor scratches can also be polished out on the ball, and all these service and maintenance can be completed efficiently without having to disconnect the body of the valve from the pipes. The major consideration in the construction of the three piece valve is the allowing for repairs to be undertaken. 

The design of the four way ball valve, which is used in the control of fluid flow, is such that it is typified by having four ports around the chamber of the valve. The ports in the body are positioned equally. Ports on adjacent sides are connected by two passages in the plug. The shape of the plug can be in the form off a ball, or it can also be tapered or cylindrical. There are two flow pathways, and typically a position in the middle where the ports are all closed. The four way valve enables a sampling cylinder to be bypassed and isolated at the same time along a pipeline that is pressurised. The hydraulic pressure within the water line remains constant and is not affected by the extraction of fluid sample. Leakage or the loss of gas is also avoided, and the entry of air and contamination from the outside is also prevented.
