Milwaukee Valve BA-485B-xH Series Brass Ball Valve with Extension Stem, Two Piece, Inline, Lever, 1-1/2" Solder End
Please note: BLINQ sells products in multiple conditions (new, open box, refurbished, etc). Not all reviews are reflective of the condition that you may purchase.
The Milwaukee Valve BA-485B-XH series brass two-piece inline ball valve with extension stem has a lever handle and solder ends on both ends. This valve body is made of brass for corrosion resistance, ductility at high temperatures, and low magnetic permeability. Brass can be connected to copper, brass, plastic, aluminum, and welded steel. This valve has a zinc-plated steel lever handle with a vinyl sleeve for manual on/off control. The extension stem designed allows installations where pipe insulation would make standard handles inoperable. Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) seats and stem packing reduce the risk of leakage. The valve is full port for reduced friction; its inner diameter is the same as the inner diameter of the connecting pipe for maximum operating efficiency. It has solder ends for a strong and durable heat-joined bond using solder and a torch. The maximum pressure rating is 600 pounds per square inch (gauge) (psig) for water, oil, and gas (WOG), 150 psig for saturated steam, and the working temperature range is 0 to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. This valve meets Manufacturers Standardization Society (MSS) SP-110 and American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) A112.4.14 standards for quality assurance.
Ball valves use a spherical disc to control the flow between pipes, tubes, or hoses. Flow is allowed when the hole that pierces the ball-shaped disc is in line with the inlet and outlet of the valve. Flow is blocked when the ball is horizontally swiveled 90 degrees, so that the hole of the ball is perpendicular to the opening of the valve. Ball valves can be referred to as full port or reduced port (also known as regular or standard port) depending on the inner diameter of the valve. A ball valve is full port if the hole of the ball is the same size as the inner diameter of the connecting pipeline (resulting in lower friction) and is reduced port if the hole of the valve is one pipe size smaller than the pipe, resulting in less flow through the valve than through the shaft of the pipe. Ball valves may have a handle or lever that aligns with the ball's position (open or closed) for manual operation. They are primarily used in air, gas, liquid, and steam applications.
The Milwaukee Valve Company manufactures manual and actuated valves, controls, and control accessories. The company, founded in 1901, and headquartered in New Berlin, WI, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2008 and 14001:2004 standards.
