James Duva, Inc. is the one-stop-shop for your plug valve needs, along with other products your upcoming jobs.
The plug valve is similar to the gate valve since it is best used in applications where all you need from the valve is on/off toggle. It’s also similar to a butterfly valve since it’s one of the quarter-turn valves.
Since the plug valve is a quarter-turn valve, this gives users the ability to quickly restrict or allow flow through the valve. The pressure drop associated with the valve is quite low since you either have the option of using a full bore disc or a rectangular disc which will still not restrict pressure as much as you’d think.
Plug Valve: Steadfast and Strong
You can use the plug valve since it assists in the flow of liquid or gas through piping. Additionally, since the plug is a quarter-turn valve, we recommend it be used as a shutoff valve. Depending on how lubricated your plug valve is, it can be used in all sorts of applications.
Plug valves can move liquids that are neutral (oil & water i.e.), acidic, alkaline, and corrosive. Additionally, it can move thicker slurry materials through the valve. Also, you can move gas through the valve. The plug valve can be used to pass neutral gases such as steam & air along with corrosive gases such as chlorine & acid vapors.
One of the good things about this valve, in particular, is that they’re simply designed making them easy to continually maintain. It’s a strong valve as well since it is constructed to safely handle extreme temperature changes. This could be in the form of boiler feed water, condensate, along with other similar elements that fluctuate in temperature.
