  1. Simple and Cost-Effective: The basic design makes them a cost-effective choice for various applications.
  2. Quick and Easy Operation: The quarter-turn operation allows for fast and easy flow control.
  3. Reliable Shut-Off: Tight-seating design minimizes leakage when the valve is in the OFF position.
  4. Bidirectional Flow: Some models allow flow in either direction, offering flexibility in piping layouts.
  5. Full or Standard Port: Available in both configurations, impacting flow restriction (full port offering less restriction).


  1. Cost-effective solution for ON/OFF flow control.
  2. Simple design ensures ease of operation and maintenance.
  3. Reliable sealing minimizes leakage risks.
  4. Suitable for various applications due to their versatility.
  5. Compact design requires less space compared to some other valve types.


    • Simplicity and cost-effectiveness: Offer a basic and affordable solution for ON/OFF flow control.
    • Ease of operation: The quarter-turn operation makes them user-friendly.
    • Reliable sealing: Tight-seating design minimizes leakage.
    • Not ideal for throttling applications: Due to the binary ON/OFF operation, they are not suitable for precise flow control.
    • Pressure limitations: Generally have lower pressure ratings compared to some other valve types.
    • May not be suitable for high-viscosity fluids: The floating ball design might not offer optimal performance with viscous fluids.
    • Butterfly valves: Offer a more cost-effective option for large diameter ON/OFF applications but may have higher leakage rates.
    • Globe valves: Well-suited for throttling applications but can be more complex and expensive.
