Full bore valve
For sanitary installations, European standard EN-806 requires the use of devices that do not obstruct the water flow. TECO ball valves have been designed full bore and comply with said requirement. The ball technology is definitely superior in terms of capacity and pressure drops compared to stem valves commonly available on the market. It is proven that full bore ball valves have a pressure drop 4-times lower than stem valves. Another advantage consists in the possibility to completely turn the ball, with just one quarter turn (90°).
