Abstract

See full text

A fluid control valve has a valve body with a cylindrical bore and a plurality of channels which communicate between the bore and the outside of the valve body. The inner ends of at least two of the channels lie in a first plane, and the inner end of at least one of the channels lie in a second plane. A valve stem rotatably mounted in the bore has two independent channels. One of the channels has two ends lying in the first plane, while the other channel has one end lying in the first plane and the other end lying in the second plane.
