Stainless Steel BSP Ball Valves are used in applications that don’t require the use of sanitary fittings. They are also normally used in pipe applications, not tube and are commonly referred to as WOG fittings (Water, Oil or Gas fittings).
Ball valves are durable and usually work to achieve perfect shut off even after years of disuse. They are therefore an excellent choice for shutoff applications (and are often preferred to globe valves and gate valves for this purpose). They do not offer the fine control that may be necessary in throttling applications but are sometimes used for this purpose.WIKIPEDIA
3 Piece Ball Valves are used in high usage situations where a good quality valve is required. The seals can be replaced with the valve in situ by undoing the 4 bolts and removing the body. These valves are rated 1000psi for ½” to 2” and 800 psi for 2 ½” to 4” at ambient temperature.
