TWO PORT FLANGE PORTED BALL VALVE
Mounting Surface: SAE Code 61, SAE Code 62 0.5 to 2 inches
INSERTA flange ported ball valves provide a simple means to install a ball valve in-line between two SAE flanges.
INSERTA flange ported 2-port ball valves have two ball seals, one for each port, 0 and 1. The top of the stem has a slot that indicates the direction of the hole through the two-port valve element. When the slot is in line with ports 0 and 1, the valve is open and permits flow between these two ports. When the stem is turned 90
degrees, the slot indicates that these two ports do not communicate, and the valve is closed. When the valve is in the closed position the port that sees the higher pressure pushes the ball against the ball seal of the opposing port side. In each case it is the seal on the side of the lower pressure port that creates the ball’s directional control valve seal.
The valve is available with either an offset aluminum or forged steel handle. Valve handle kits are packaged separately for mounting by the customer. Standard ball valve handle mounting is with port 0
open to port 1 when the handle is turned counter-clockwise. The ports are closed when the handle is subsequently turned clockwise.
