Stainless Steel 1/2" Mini One Piece Ball Valve
A ball valve is a form of quarter-turn shut-off valve that controls the flow of a liquid or gas by means of a rotary ball with a hole bored through the center and sandwiched between two seats. Ball valves do not use a hand-wheel but instead use a wrench handle to control the flow. A 90° turn of the wrench opens or closes the valve. It is open when the ball’s hole is in line with the fluid flow direction and closed when it is pivoted 90-degrees by the valve handle. The handle lies flat in alignment with the flow when open, and is perpendicular to it when closed, making for easy visual confirmation of the valve’s status.
