  • What is a M&F Mini Ball Valve?

    A Male & Female (commonly called M&F) Mini Ball Valve has a chrome plated brass body that houses a rotating ball inside it. These two way units have a threaded female port at one end and a male at the other. The Ball Valve is operated by rotating the small handle 90 degrees which will open or close the ball valve. The handle is stopped at these positions by a limit, this will stop the user moving the ball past the fully closed and fully open point. They have PTFE seats with an NBR oring seal which allows for a very low torque operation.

  • How does a Male and Female Mini Ball Valve Work?

    Housed within the body of the ball valve is a ball. This has a hole at either end which is equal to the inside diameter of the valve. When rotated 90 degrees it will either expose these holes to the flow or close them off from the flow allowing the valve to close or open. The ball is turned by a shaft which connects to the lever on the top of the valve. This type of Ball Valve is often called a floating ball valve as the ball itself is suspended within the cavity of the ball valve with the PTFE seats holding the ball from either end of the valve (and also sealing it).

  • What are Typical Uses of an M&F Mini Ball Valve?

    These mini ball valves are used in applications where space is at a premium or a higher specification unit is not required. Typical applications include an isolating ball valve for compressed air terminals, used as gauge cocks for isolating media to gauges and many other applications.

  • How do I install an M&F Mini Ball Valve?

    These are very easy to install as they are bi-directional meaning they do not have a direction of flow (unlike a solenoid valve for instance). This model has a female thread at one end and a male thread at the other. Ensure that this has appropriate thread sealant or tape to achieve a bubble tight seal. They can be installed on any axis and any way if needed.

  • How long will my M&F Mini Ball Valve Last?

    This really depends upon the environment and media that the ball valve is exposed to. The cycle rate will feature heavily as well as if the valve is only cycled once a day it may well last over a decade however if it is cycled frequently it will wear out sooner.

  • How long will my product take to get to me? 

    This depends upon where you are based and the freight method chosen. If the express freight option is selected it is usually next day delivery to metropolitan areas in Australia for under 5kg. If free freight has been selected it will go by road freight which can be anywhere from 1 to 10 days depending upon your location. It usually averages 3 days.

  • What warranty do I get?

    All of our products come standard with a 12 month warranty. The good news is we have very strict quality controls and all valves leave our warehouse tested (full material and testing certificates to API598 are available) and inspected so there are rarely any issues. Also once your valve is in and operating it will most likely continue to do so for a very long time.
