The Beswick MBVMD-1010-303 ball valve is a suitable solution for many miniature high tech applications. You can think of it as the “baby bear” of ball valves. There are times, however, when you need a precision ball valve that is more compact than traditional NPT threaded ball valves but can also provide more flow than is possible with 10-32 threads and a relatively small orifice. That configuration is not easy to find.
The Beswick MBV-1414-3 ball valve is designed with ¼-28 UNF straight threads and a relatively large orifice diameter of 0.125 inch. It weighs only 34 grams. That isn’t much, yet it provides more than 3 times as much flow area as the 10-32 threaded MBVMD-1010-303. You can think of the MBV-1414-3 as the “father bear” of miniature ball valves.
