Three-way ball valve is isolating valve designed to redirect
the service fluid flow. It is not designed to be used for throttling or
regulating purposes. For temperatures up to +500 °C (for
temperatures above +400 °C for non-oxidizing fluids only).
Suitable for water, steam, gas, oil, heat transfer fluids and other liquids
and gases without mechanical impurities.
Approved for fluids in groups 1 (hazardous) and 2 according to
- DN 10 – DN 100, PN 16 – PN 160
- NPS ½″ – NPS 4″, Class 150 – Class 900
- floating ball,
- full bore,
- anti-static design,
- stem secured against release (anti-blow-out),
- ball bore form of either “L” or “T”,
- flow direction limited,
- stuffing box,
- sealed with Graphite.
- hand lever,
- hand wheel with worm gear,
- pneumatic actuator,
- electric actuator.
Connection to piping
- internal thread (KM 9301.X-01-HT) – G (BSPP), NPT, R (BSPT), Rp
- weld end (KM 9303.X-01-HT) – butt or socket – EN, API, GOST
- flanged (KM 9308.X-01-HT) – EN, API, GOST
The ball valve is equipped with two seats for ball sealing, the middle
connecting pipe is without a seat. The pressure fluid may be brought to the
middle connection only, the end connections are outlet
connections (L221, T231). The flow possibilities are shown on the schemes, other
possibilities can be discussed by phone.
