3-Way Diverter Port Valves (Industrial)


IMI PBM’s 3, 4 and 5-Way Multi-Port Valves are true multi-port valves with seals at every port. This design makes the multi-port ideal for flow switching operations. In some applications, this valve can replace as many as four ordinary 2-way valves, with corresponding savings in piping and fittings.
