I would like to start my electric brewing rig that has been planned for a while but OSCYS.com is always out of stock on the 3 way and 2 way ball valves.

I am in need of (2) 3 way valves and (5) 2 way valves with the manual override.

Alternatively, does anyone know of anything else that is compatible with the brewtroller?

Thanks

Edit: I see I posted this in the for sale thread instead of the wanted thread. Could a mod please relocate this for me? Thanks.

tf-valvefittings.com has the 2-way, without override, straight from China for cheaper than oscsys. I ordered a bunch, and they arrived somewhere around a week later.

I'm also looking for valves, if we get a few more together we could possibly get a group buy going and get a better deal for everyone.

Here's a stupid question about these, can this type of ball valve be opened partially for flow control, or is it only fully open/fully closed?

These type of valves are open/close only.

You would need positioner valves to control the percentage that the valve is open and they cost much more and are much larger than a standard actuated valve.

I plan on using manual valves before my actuated valves to control flow, but this wont work if you want to be fully automated.

Reason: Forgot quotes

How many are you looking for? I am now looking for (4) 2-ways and (3) 3-ways. I changed my design a little bit

Does anyone else want to join in on a group buy?
