    Thanks. Good but with the cons of tear and wear of the synthetic part after prolong usage.

    The ball valves which are labeled "full flow" are designed to flow at the same rate as the pipes they are connected to. The inside diameter you are looking at is about the same as the pipe ID. If you think I'm FOS - just use a larger valve and bush down the fittings.

    Please tell me why you want to do this thing that you state?

    Unfortunately, the 3way valve I saw wasn't 3/4" all through. The fitting ends are 3/4" but the inner diameter is reduced and becomes narrow inside.
    See picture attached.

    Please, how can I get a true 3/4" brass 3 way ball valve?
    Thanks.

    Because a $50 ball valve is cheaper than a $5000. condensing unit

    That's what I'm getting from this. He has one compressor sized for one freezer yet he has two freezers. He wants to run the compressor 100% and split the time 50/50 between the 2 cases.

    Thanks. Ball valve is to save cost of extra compressor and condenser.

    Yea they are okay. I'm getting into Arduino it's an open source company that builds programmable controllers. I am working on building a PI controller for my fish aquarium. So I ask for assistance on the forum and as soon as they hear what I'm doing all of a sudden I'm stupid and over complicating something so simple. Well I know how to build a temperature control but I want to learn something new and have fun. So I don't have a forum to go to with help for my project like you do. Best of luck, learn something new and most importantly have fun.

    That is awesome. I have been playing with uControllers for years. Built the controls for a vodka still years back using an arduino for the controller. I am now thinking of using a raspberry pi to control a WIF/WIC, EXV and everything. Wifi connection so I can watch it from afar, and communicate/control it while away.
