FEATURES & BENEFITS
CONSTRUCTION:Standard material is high tensile ASTM A126 Class B cast iron. ASTM A536 65-45-12 ductile iron is also available for high temperature applications. Flange thickness, diameter and drilling fully conform to ANSI B16.1 Class 125.
COST:Plug valves are usually lower in cost and lighter in weight than comparable gate or globe valves.
LOW MAINTENANCE:Only a small initial injection of sealant, with minimal follow-up sealing, is required for positive shut-off. Minimal quick and easy follow-up sealing assures long lasting service.
PLUG:The single solid-piece plug design features true bi-directional seating and low vibration operation.
FLOW:Various port configurations make them suitable for a wide range of applications.
SEAL:A thin film of sealant not only forms an incompressible seal to prevent gas or liquid leakage, but also reduces friction between the body and plug, offering low torque operation.
SEAT:Metal to metal seating assures long life, with no rubber to wear.
TESTING:Every valve is 100% leak-tested before shipment to ensure reliable shut-off.
ACTUATION:Valves are available with lever, manual gear, pneumatic and electric actuation.
