Series Description

The VBN2 and VBN3 Series are Honeywell's characterized flow, low-torque, two-, and three-way ball valves. They are designed to provide Cv ratings that closely match industry-standard globe valves, and they have equal percentage flow characteristics. A single-style bracket maximizes simplicity and flexibility in mounting spring or non-spring return actuators. The valve bodies are 1/2 in. to 3 in. NPT sizes and use low-torque, low-cost actuators.
