Notes to answerer
Asker: Niby się nasuwa, ale na przykład tutaj mamy w produktach oddzielnie zawór kulowy i kurek sferyczny. Czy jest jakaś różnica? Czy ktoś tu wodę leje? https://www.weba.com.pl/pl/produkty/zawory-do-gazu

(lever/handle-operated) spherical valve

The 209 Ball Valve is a full bore high quality quarter turn spherical valve with integral compression fittings for copper tube.

Spherical valves are not generally serviceable. 2-port valves normally have two PTFE conical seals and a spindle seal. Some economyball valves have only one proper seat. These are uni-directional and the direction arrow must be observed.
The byelaws required servicing valves to a WC float valve to have a screwdriver slot rather than a lever. The Water Regulations no longer state this and levers may be used.

Reference information:
What Are Ball Valves?
Ball valves shut off the flow of water using a small sphere, or ball, inside the valve. The sphere has an opening inside.
Zatem obrazowo mówiąc, wodę leją ci, którzy wymyślili inną nazwę zaworu dla mediów gazowych, które mają taką samą konstrukcję, może z użyciem innych materiałów. Zawsze to brzmi bardziej profesjonalnie.

Reference: cock vs. valve

Reference information:
W ujęciu amerykańskim:

The ball valve is evolved from the stopcock. It has the same 90-degree rotation lifting action, the difference is that the cock is a sphere, with a circular through-hole or passage through its axis.

W ujęciu brytyjskim może być inaczej.
