3-way Electric Ball Valve-(PDF)
Valve is ordered with either a two-hole or three-hole ball. The two-hole ball switches from one inlet (or outlet) to the other, with a momentary no-flow condition. The three-hole ball ensures that flow is uninterrupted, with a momentary mixing of flow from the two ports. It is suggested that you specify the two-hole ball if you want to prevent the two streams from mixing, and specify the three-hole ball if you are concerned about dead-heading with a momentary no-flow condition. If you are unsure, you are invited to contact our Technical department for assistance at (973) 256-3000.
Materials of Construction:
Actuator enclosure is primarily PETRA, a rugged, corrosion-resistant thermoplastic. Other materials exposed to the atmosphere include Lexan, Stainless Steel, and Buna-nitrile. Valve materials are PVC or Corzan®. Valve seats and bearings are PTFE. Wetted seals are Viton® or EPDM.
Temperature and Pressure:
Pressure rating for both PVC and CPVC is 175 PSI at 75 degrees F (24 C). Maximum temperature for PVC is 140 degrees F (60 C); maximum temperature for CPVC is 180 degrees F (82 C).
If momentary signal is desired, standard timing relays can be used. Wiring diagram is available from our Technical Group; 973-256-3000.

If you need a non-CAD drawing of Series TEBV, you may simply right-click the dimensional drawing above, and "save as" in your desired directory.
If you would like a full-fledged .dwg file, please read the following note, then click on the CADlink icon below.
NOTE THAT YOU WILL NEED TO DOWNLOAD TWO SEPARATE FILES TO GENERATE A DRAWING OF SERIES TEBV: First, download the TMBV file, which is the 3-way ball valve by itself, then download the EBV file, which is the actuator. Download EBV-65.DWG for 1/2" thru 1" valves. Download EBV-104.DWG for 1-1/2" and 2" valves. By combining the drawings, you will have TEBV.
Please Note Series TEBV is being phased out, and being replaced by Series TEBVA, effective August 2009.
3-Way Solenoid Valves: If you need the electric actuation of TEBV, but perhaps you need instantaneous on/off control, or a much smaller sized valve, or a lower-cost valve...Series THP is a compact 3-way solenoid valve.

Air-Operated Diaphragm Valves and Globe Valves-Perhaps your application requires more rapid shut-off, or you want to use line pressure to open the valve, or have other reasons you don't specifically want a ball valve. If so, True Blue ASO, BSD, or BSR is likely to meet your needs.
Online Pressure DropCalculator -- Allows you to easily determine the probable pressuredrop across a valve. Note: For comparison and illustrative purposesonly; not to be relied on for system design.
