Brass ball valves are one of the most common types of valves used for pipe systems. They are made of a copper and zinc alloy, which makes them highly corrosion-resistant. They can be cast, forged, heat extruded, or cold drawn and come in several different sizes.
A brass ball valve typically has a ball that can be rotated to direct flow one way, or turned 180deg to close off completely. They can also have a V-shaped hole that allows for more precise control when rotating the ball.
A T-type ball valve has three holes drilled at 90deg angles that meet in the center to form a T. They can be used to direct flow into two or more passageways simultaneously, or shut off one or all of them individually.

High capacity ball valves are designed for use with compressed air, water or oil to isolate segments of a system without disrupting service to the rest of the system. They are available in both 1" and 2" flanged versions, and feature a plated steel ball, Teflon seals and a plated 1/4 turn handle.
Threaded connections can be either female or male, and are compatible with a wide variety of pipe systems. They also are available in flanged versions, which have bolt holes on the end connectors to attach to matching flanges on pipes.
