G3/8 inch hydraulic high pressure ball valve is a type of valve used in hydraulic systems to control the flow of fluids under high pressure. It consists of a spherical closure element (the ball) with a hole through it that can be rotated to either allow or block the flow of fluid. The 2 way ball valve is operated by a lever, handle, or actuator that turns the ball to open or close the valve.

Tips: What is the difference between a high pressure and low pressure ball valve?
High pressure and low-pressure ball valves differ primarily in their design and construction to handle varying levels of fluid pressure.
High pressure ball valves are built to withstand and control fluids at elevated pressure levels, typically above 1000 psi. They feature robust materials, such as stainless steel or alloy, and often include reinforced components like stronger seals and seats to prevent leakage. High-pressure ball valves are engineered for durability and reliable performance in demanding applications like industrial processes, hydraulic systems, and oil and gas operations.
Low pressure ball valves, on the other hand, are designed for systems with lower pressure requirements, usually under 150 psi. They may use materials like PVC or brass and have simpler, more cost-effective designs. While they are less expensive and easier to operate, low pressure ball valves may not be suitable for high-stress environments.
