A plug valve seals using the mechanism that rotates between the open and closed positions and protects both seals from the flow path.
If a sector relies on hydraulic systems for operation, you can guarantee that plug valves are an essential component in use. Plug valves are quarter-turn manual motion valves that stop or start fluid flow.
Lift plug valves are designed to operate in severe applications that include high temperatures, fluids, and solids in suspension.
Plug valves are commonly used in low-pressure-low-temperature services as they are high-capacity valves that can be used for directional flow control, even in moderate vacuum systems.
