Three-way ball valves are the most popular and economical type of multi-port valves. This style of valve is commonly used in applications with more than one source of media or to divert media in two different directions.
Depending on the flow direction, the three ports are assigned as either one outlet and two inlets, or one inlet and two outlets.
Three-way ball valves are most commonly configured with L-Port or T-Port flow patterns. The ball valve is drilled into a specific design, creating either an L- or T-shaped port.
Each design serves a specific function. An L-port valve draws media from multiple sources or diverts media between two different destinations. A T-port valve serves a very similar function, the main difference being that in the normal position the media will flow straight through from one side of the T to the other.
The T-port can also be configured to have media flow directly through the valve in position #1 and all ports open in position #2. An L-port valve cannot be configured to have all valve ports open simultaneously.
Three-way ball valves can be used as diverters or input selectors. Our 3-way ball valves are designed for use in the following applications:
