Beswick Engineering (www.beswick.com) has announced the release of the MBVMD mixing and diverting ball valve, which was specifically designed with a common inlet port that can be individually put in communication with its outlet ports for diverting service.
As a member of the company’s series of miniature ball valves, the MBVMD weighs only 12 grams and is exceptionally compact at 0.77 inch high. Its inlet and outlet ports are 10-32 UNF standard, while other sizes are available upon request.
Beswick’s miniature ball valve series also include the MBV ball valve and the MBVT selector ball valve. The MBV variants come with a standard shut-off configuration, making it ideally suited for on/off applications, while the MBVT offers a three-way diverting configuration.
All three models are specifically designed with corrosion resistant 303 stainless steel body (with 316 stainless steel available as an option) and a selection of elastomer seal materials. The ball valves also feature Buna-N as standard, while EPDM and Viton are provided as an option.
Aside from being compact and light-weight, the ball valves also deliver non-restricted flow, offering an outstanding choice for applications with up to 250 psig.
Much like the MBVMD model, the MBVT also weighs 12 grams while the MBV model weighs just nine grams.
Specializing in high-performance miniature fluid power components, Beswick Engineering offers captured O-ring face seals for leak-tight sealing, ultra-miniature designs for space savings and a variety of materials for corrosion resistance. Applications range from medical equipment, hydrogen fuel cells, laboratory equipment, instruments, semiconductor manufacturing equipment, ink jet print engines as well as homeland defense detectors.
