Hayward Manual Three-Way Ball Valves come standard with a two port “TW” ball allowing for three flow configurations within 180 degrees of rotation. With the bottom port as the inlet, the flow can be directed out the left port, out the right port or shut off. Hayward Actuated Three-Way Ball Valves come standard with a three port “NT” ball allowing for two flow configurations within 90 degrees of rotation. With the bottom port as the inlet, the flow can be directed out the left port or out the right port, there is no shut off position.. A “TW” ball, used with with the proper electric actuator, adds what is typically called a “center off position” to the “NT” flow pattern of actuated valves. An optional “TP” ball, used with either manual or actuated valves, allows flow through all ports at the same time or flow shutoff.
True Union Design:
This makes these valves very easy to maintain by allowing for easy removal from a piping system without breaking down the piping connections. Just unscrew the three assembly nuts and lift the valve body out of the line.
Easy to Actuate:
A manual valve can be easily automated. Just remove the handle and install the optional actuator mounting kit. The mounting saddle is integrally molded into the valve body. For rock-solid actuator mounting, the valve incorporates a unique design whereby the mounting bracket mounts directly to the valve body. This assures proper alignment of the actuator to the valve without creating any damaging side loads to cause premature stem seal failure.
No Metal, No Corrosion:
Hayward all plastic three-way valves contain no metal parts. The valves will never fail because of corrosion and they do not require painting or epoxy coating to stand up to aggressive environments.
