This full port valve is made of 304 stainless steel construction, including the ball. A full port valve will have a minimal pressure drop because of its full size ports. The insulated handle has a fast 1/4 turn to open or close the valve. Maximum operating temperature of this stainless steel valve is 450 F (232 C). It is 1/2" female NPT threaded on both ends.
Like most machined parts, this will need to be cleaned before first use.
