Polypropylene for chemical resistance and less weight than if made from metal
Side load for valves with a side inlet
Full port flow for higher operating efficiency than standard port
Three-port diverting valve to regulate flow among three sections of pipe
Female NPT threads for connecting to male threaded pipe fittings
This Banjo V075SL side load ball valve is made of polypropylene for chemical resistance and less weight than if made from metal and has a full port flow with a three-port diverting valve to regulate flow among three sections of pipe. The three-piece construction side load valve has a side inlet (cannot be completely turned off) and 3/4" female National Pipe Taper (NPT) threads for connecting to male threaded pipe fittings. It has PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) seats for resistance to chemicals, moisture, and high temperatures and is rated to 100 pounds per square inch (psi) with an operating temperature range of -20 to 150 degrees F. This three way ball valve is suitable for use in fluid handling applications.
Ball valves use a spherical disc to control the flow between pipes, tubes, or hoses. Flow is allowed when the hole that pierces the ball-shaped disc is in line with the inlet and outlet of the valve and is blocked when the ball is horizontally swiveled 90 degrees, so that the hole of the ball is perpendicular to the opening of the valve. Ball valves can be referred to as full port or reduced port (also known as regular or standard port) depending on the inner diameter or the valve. A ball valve is full port if the hole of the ball is the same size as the inner diameter of the connecting pipeline (resulting in lower friction) and termed reduced port if the hole of the valve is one pipe size smaller than the pipe, resulting in less flow through the valve than through the shaft of the pipe. Ball valves may have a handle or lever that aligns with the ball’s position (open or closed) for manual operation. They are primarily used in air, gas, liquid, and steam applications.
Banjo manufactures valves, couplings, pumps, pipe and hose fittings, and other fluid handling products for industrial applications. The company, founded in 1995, is headquartered in Crawfordsville, IN.

Not a 3 way valve like the top handle version. It is a two way valve; it takes input from the bottom, and goes out either side. There is no off position like a true 3 way valve. 3 way = left,right, and off. 2 way = left, and right.
This thing is huge, but it works. Unfortunately there are not any options for mounting brackets for this particular device. I ended up making my own with little "L" brackets. Just had to drill the hole bigger. I'm using it for filling/draining my reef tank using the same tube.
