Optional Ball Configurations
. Type 23 Multiport plastic ball valves use the "L" ported ball valve as standard, which permits flow from the bottom (common) entry to either the left or right ports or to an OFF position.
. Optional T-Port, X-Port, Double L-Port and Triple L-Port ported balls are available with different flow configurations and port openings. Changing the flow pattern is done simply by disassembling the valve and changing the ball configuration.
. The Type 23 Multiport valve may be pneumatically or electrically actuated, so the operating angle of the specific ball configuration must be matched to the operating angle and OFF position (if needed) of the actuator. Not all actuators have all operating angle or OFF position capability. See specific actuator/option pages for details.
L-Port Ball Standard Configuration – 180 degree Operation (no Add-on cost to the cost of the valve)
Bottom port common, with 3 positions, 2 flow configurations
. 0 degrees = bottom to right port only, full port
. 90 degrees = all ports closed
. 180 degrees = bottom to left port only, full port
The Chemline Type 23 Multiport Ball Valve incorporates all the quality features of the Type 21 True Union type. One multiport valve eliminates the need for two standard ball valves and a tee in many cases.
A choice of several flow patterns is available. L-Port is supplied standard. X-Port offers flow straight through ports 1 and 2. T-Port connects all three ports simultaneously.
Choice of Flow Patterns
Integral Actuator Mounting Platform
• Actuation is easy. Electric or pneumatic actuators may be mounted in the field
• Downstream union nut may be safely disassembled for piping maintenance while valve is closed off
under full system pressure
• Handle works as a tool for accessing internal parts
Safety Shear Stem Design
• Stem has double o-rings
• Designed to hold full pressure even if stem breaks due to excessive torque
High Chemical Resistant Material
• PVC and CPVC compounds have an “A” chemical
resistance rating as per ASTM D-1784
