Key Features / Tech Specs:

  • Manufactured by Georg Fischer
  • T port and L port valves available

Technical Info:

T port and L port valves are similar in the fact they provide methods for diverting flow, however in function they are unique to each other.

The ball in a T port valve is drilled to have a T shaped bore. This allows fluid to be diverted to two outlets simultaneously or two inlets mixed to one outlet when the valve is fully open.

Conversely, the ball in a L port valve is drilled to have an L shaped bore. This means fluid can be fed from two sources or released via two outlets. The Georg Fischer 3-way L port ball valves also allow fluid to be diverted to two outlets simultaneously or two inlets mixed to one outlet, however the flow rate will be reduced. Unlike a T port valve, an L port valve can be fully closed, restricting any flow.
