Three way Ball Valve is available in “L” Port / “T Port to meet the service condition.
The Three Way “L” Port Ball Valve also called as a Diverting Valve. Also Known as a Duplex Filter Valve. Ball has two ports One inlet and another outlet. Flow can be diverted to either direction. Generally at 90 deg.
The L valve can connect the center port to either side port, or disconnect all three, but it cannot connect the side ports together. L Port Valves have a ball that join two adjacent ports. Traditionally, they are used to direct flow between the Centre and one of two side ports.
The Three Way “T” Port Ball Valve also known as a Mixing Valve. Ball has three ports.
It is easy to see that a T valve can connect any pair of ports, or all three, together, but the 45 degree position which might disconnect all three leaves no margin for error. T-Port valves can also direct flow between the centre and one of two side ports. The difference is that they have a third handle position that connects the centre to both side ports at the same time.JD Multiport 3 Way Ball valves utilize four seats to support the ball, and to provide positive shutoff at any closed port. Multiple Gland Packing Seal & Spring Washer gives zero leakage from gland portion.
