Default 3/4" ball/gate valve w/o restriction

Hey guys, I'm looking for a 3/4" ball/gate valve with out restriction. Ya know what I mean? The valve is 3/4" but the whole in the valve is 1/4". This is for my plate chiller in-let that has garden hose threads.
Thanks Mike

Are you looking for a 3/4" full port ball valve? The opening is 3/4" and the hole in the ball is 3/4".

Edit:
This would be an example of what I think you're referring to (I'm not suggesting you buy this one; just an example):

yes!! Ball Valve Full Port is what I'm looking for. I didn't know the term full port. Got one you like?

I use 1/2" stainless full port ball valves from stainlessbrewing. I like them a lot so far. They don't carry 3/4" so that's not much help. I can tell you that the valve brand is Anchor Fluid Power so maybe that can help you track one down.

There's also a difference in 2-piece and 3-piece ball valves. The 3-piece can be opened up and cleaned/parts replaced; the 2 piece cannot. Hard to say why you'd choose one over the other besides being able to clean the insides.
