2 Way / 3 Way Pneumatic / Electric Actuated Ball Valves
A ball valve, one type of quarter turn valve, is quite literally a ball placed in a passageway through which fluid flows. The ball has a hole through it, by which the valve opens and closes. When the ball is positioned so that the hole runs the same direction as the passageway, the fluid simply flows through the hole, and the valve is open. However, when the ball is positioned so that the hole is perpendicular to the passageway, the fluid cannot pass through, and the valve is closed. The ball is controlled from outside the valve, often with Electric and Pneumatic actuator which will turned the Ball to 90 degrees, or a quarter turn, back and forth to open and close the valve. Refer typical cut section of the Ball valve.
