3-piece ball valve alternative

Postby diymechanicalguy » Tue Aug 07, 2018 02:14

I like the 3-piece design as you can fully take them apart and clean components, which is obviously crucial. However, I'm not a fan of the 4 bolts it takes to disassemble. Does anyone use an alternative ball valve that still allows for complete disassembly? I'm not a fan of butterfly valves due to the disk being in the middle of the flow, but open to suggestions. I use these all over the place in my home brewing.

We use butterfly valves all through the brewery at work. They work great - what is the issue with them? I can’t say I’ve found them difficult to clean.

2016: 330L brewed (72 gallons, over 8 firkins)
2017: 105L brewed (need to update this figure)
Drinking: Landlord clone
Conditioning: ciders from 2016, hedgerow barrolo, 1914 Courage RIS (10%).

Butterfly valves are dairy/brewery standard. I don’t see how you could improve the hygienic design.

LeeH - I agree that butterfly valves are hygienic. I just don't prefer them on certain lines, like Wort as it is a thicker media and a butterfly valve isn't fully unobstructed.

We would recommend the butterfly valve which have 4 bolts but easier to take apart. Both Butterfly valve and Ball valves are hygienic and suitable for even a pharmaceutical line.

That link looks like a normal 3 piece ball valve?
I usually get these from Tameson:
Was hoping for a link to one that wasn't a 3 piece.
