The PMBV series three-way ball valves are designed as diverter (selecting) valves. These valves
have a 90-degree handle rotation. Rotating the handle directs the flow to the alternate open port,
shutting off the previously open port completely. This valve uses a lever handle and can be orientated
in four positions. It can also be installed or removed while the valve is under pressure. There are four
screw boss locations available for panel mounting the valve body. Panel mounting requires a 0.75
inch hole and a maximum panel thickness of 0.17 inches.
