3 Piece Ball Valve

A 3-piece ball valve is a type of flow control valve that consists of three separate parts: the body, the ball, and the stem. The body of the valve is typically made of metal and houses the ball and stem. The ball, which is usually made of metal or plastic, has a small hole drilled through the center that can be aligned with the flow of the fluid to allow it to pass through or blocked it to stop the flow. The stem is used to rotate the ball and control the flow of fluid. 3-piece ball valves are commonly used in industrial and commercial applications because they are durable, easy to repair, and have a long service life.

A 3-piece ball valve works by using a ball with a hole drilled through its center that can be rotated to align with or block the flow of fluid. The ball is connected to a stem, which is controlled by a handle or lever on the outside of the valve. When the handle is turned to the open position, the stem rotates the ball so that the hole is in line with the flow of fluid, allowing it to pass through. When the handle is turned to the closed position, the stem rotates the ball so that the hole is perpendicular to the flow of fluid, blocking it.

The three pieces of the valve are the body, the ball, and the stem. The body of the valve is typically made of metal and houses the ball and stem. The ball is usually made of metal or plastic and is seated in the body of the valve. The stem is attached to the ball and is used to rotate it to control the flow of fluid. The stem is sealed to the body of the valve to prevent leakage.
