Description

  • Forged brass for higher corrosion resistance than steel
  • Plastic-covered lever handle for on/off manual control
  • Full port flow for higher operating efficiency than standard port
  • Inline valve for connecting two pipes going in the same direction
  • Female NPT threads for connecting to male threaded pipe fittings
  • Product contains brass which does not meet federal and state requirements for drinking water.
  • This Smith-Cooper International 8140 Series mini ball valve is made of forged brass for higher corrosion resistance than
    steel and has a plastic-covered lever handle for on/off manual control. It has PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) seats and
    seals for resistance to chemicals, moisture, and high temperatures. This inline valve has a full port flow for higher
    operating efficiency than standard port and 1/4" female National Pipe Taper (NPT) threads for connecting two male
    threaded pipe fittings going in the same direction. It is pressure rated to 600 pounds per square inch (psi) for cold
    working pressure (CWP), 150 psi for saturated steam. This mini ball valve is suitable for use in water, oil and gas
    applications.

    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 and 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
    or 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 termed 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.

    Smith-Cooper International distributes pipe, fittings, and valves under its SCI trademark and manufactures valves under
    the Sharpe brand. The company, founded in 1993 and headquartered in Commerce, CA, meets International Organization for
    Standardization (ISO) standard 9002.
