The compact 2-piece ball valve is designed and manufactured for users looking for a lightweight, space-saving option for their application. Where the compact 2 piece valve differs from the standard is the shorter handle, slightly shorter in valve length, and slightly smaller in external diameter. The interior specifications remain the same as our standard stainless steel two piece ball valve and so do the pressure ratings and Specs. Being compact they are ideal for applications with limited space.
They are also a good alternative for brass ball valves, since they are close in price however, the advantage is that they are cleaner and more chemical resistant.
