Pressure Handling: Two-way valves are designed to handle specific pressure ranges. It's important to select a valve that can withstand the operating pressure of the system.
Flow Control: They are used for on/off control but can also be used for basic throttling of flow. Some two-way valves are designed to control flow rate.
Applications: These valves are used in a wide range of applications including HVAC systems, water supply, industrial process control, and irrigation systems.
Sealing Mechanisms: The sealing of the valve is crucial for preventing leaks. Common sealing materials include PTFE (Teflon), EPDM, and NBR, chosen based on compatibility with the fluid.
Connection Types: Connection types can vary, including threaded, flanged, or compression fittings, depending on the system requirements.
Maintenance and Durability: Generally, two-way valves are low-maintenance and have a long service life, but this can vary based on the type of valve and application.
