Specialty Manufacturing Co.'s 845 Series 3/8" five-way valve

The Specialty Manufacturing Co., a manufacturer of custom metal and plastic valves, introduced the 845 Series 3/8-inch five-way valve to solve complex flow control and diversion challenges across a broad range of media. 

In addition to the new 3/8-inch design,the valve can be customized with a variety of NPT and barbed ends. The 845 Series features a 90-degree ported ball with a .312-inch through hole diameter that accepts media through the bottom port and directs it to any one of the four side ports — with no flow to the other three. Side ports can also be plugged to create “no-flow” options. Output port selection is confident via the nylon handle and full 360-degree rotation with a tactile and audible click at each port. Panel mount hole requirement is .750-inch diameter and accommodates a maximum panel thickness of .375 inch.

Constructed of solid brass, the 845 Series features an electroless nickel-plated brass ball, 302 stainless steel detent and spring, and has a maximum operating pressure of 500 psi at temperatures as high as 180 °F. The 845 is available with Buna-N, Ethylene Propylene, or Fluoroelastomer (Viton) seals.
