Three-way and Four-way Ball Valves
In addition to straight-through (two-way) ball valves, PromArm designs and manufactures three-way and four-way ball valves. Three-way ball valves are the most common and as indicated by their name, they have three outlets. Depending on the valve design, the outlets’ axes are either situated on a single plane or a there is a central port at the bottom in which case it is called a three-way, bottom entry ball valve.
Multi-port ball valves are designed for mixing or distributing fluid flows or redirection of fluid flows and quantities to different pipelines. The type of operation for three-way ball valves is determined by ball port configuration and the outlet’s position as shown in the figure below:

Three-way and four-way ball valves are constructed using a variety materials (carbon steel, stainless steel, brass, cast iron, titanium) and can be fitted with any type of end connection in any diameter from 6 mm to 300 mm. They are also capable of withstanding pressure from 1 kgf/cm2 to 200 kgf/cm2.
Three-way ball valves are widely applied in chemical and petrochemical plants and in the food industry.
Three-way and four-way ball valves can be operated manually (by handle or reduction gear) as well as by electric and pneumatic actuator.
On your order, PromArm can supply three-way and four-way ball valves with either a union or a flanged end connection made of various materials — GGG40, WCB, CF8, CF8M, Hastelloy, etc. — by leading Russian and European manufacturers.
