A fluid handling system has many different parts and operations that can be customized and controlled based on the individual needs it serves. One key element of many fluid handling systems is the multi-port ball valve. The multi-port is able to control fluids multi-directionally and also has a cutoff position, all in one valve.
A multi-port ball valve can control the access of fluid to various parts of the piping system. For example, if a system needs to add more hot water, the multi-port ball valve can be used to open flow to the hot water heater and add hot water to the line. Once enough hot water has been applied, the multi-port ball valve can cease flow again to control the temperature of the system.
Multi-port valves come in different materials, with multiple types of port configuration and end connections. This level of customization allows for complete control over any kind of fluid handling system. The most common kinds of multi-port valves are three- or four-way handlers. Many parts are interchangeable between models and are more cost-effective.
The more standard applications for multi-port ball valve include:
• Mixing/blending line medias
• Diversion of Fluid flow to a new location
• Bypass heat exchanges, meters etc.
• Move fluid into or out of storage tanks
• Shut off flow from particular locations
