Beswick Engineering, specialised in miniature liquid and pneumatic fittings, quick disconnects, valves and regulators, launched the MBV-1414-3 ball valve for applications requiring a compact, high-quality on/off valve. Manufactured in 303 stainless steel and machined with a ¼-28 UNF threaded inlet and outlet ports, this valve is ideal for high technology devices. The valve is actuated from the shut-off position by rotating the lever by 90°, which allows the gas or liquid to flow through a 0.125″ diameter flow path. The seat for the ball is constructed of chemically resistant Teflon®. A Buna-N o-ring provides a seal on the valve stem. EPDM, Silicone and Fluorocarbon (also known as Viton®) are available upon request.
