Ball valves use a metal ball with a hole bored through the center, sandwiched between two seats to control flow.
A butterfly valve is a valve used for flow regulation in large pipe diameters in which the disc takes the form of disk.
A needle valve is a type of valve which can be used to regulate flow of a substance, usually either gas or water, through an appliance or system.
