What is Lined plug valve?

What is Lined plug valve?

XOMOX® 2-Way and 3-Way Lined Plug Valves feature an encapsulated plug rotating in a fully lined body which provide a long-lasting valve that provides tight in-line and atmospheric seal with optimized torques.

What is the application of plug valve?

A plug valve is a quarter-turn manual valve that uses a cylindrical or tapered plug to permit or prevent straight through flow through the body. The plug has a straight through full port opening. Plug valve can be used in on-off, basic moderate throttling, and diverting services.

How does a plug valve work?

The plug valve uses a mechanism that rotates between the open and closed position and protects both seals from the flow path. During rotation there is no contact between body and seals, and slips expand onto the body seat when the valve is closed to avoid causing any wear or abrasion to the seals.

Can plug valves be used for isolation?

Gate valves, ball valves and plug valves are generally considered to provide tight and effective shut-off. Globe valves and Butterfly valves may not be tight shut-off due to wear on the plug or the seat, or due to their design, and may not be appropriate to provide effective isolation.

What are the two main types of spherical plug valves available?

There are mainly two types of plug valves, lubricated plug valves and non-lubricated plug valves. Lubricated plug valves are usually made of metal and they feature a lubricant chamber that constantly lubricates the plug of the valve.

What is the other name for plug valve?

Plug valves, also called cocks, generally are used for the same full-flow service as gate valves, where quick shutoff is required. They are used for steam, water, oil, gas, and chemical liquid service. Plug valves are not generally designed for the regulation of flow.

Do plug valves have a flow direction?

The basic design of plug valves is illustrated in Fig. 1. Full flow is obtained when the opening in the tapered plug is aligned in the direction of flow. When the plug is rotated a quarter turn, flow is terminated.

How do you know if an isolation valve is open or closed?

Isolation valves Quarter turn valves are open when the handle (or screwdriver slot) is in line with the valve, and closed when they are at rightangles.

Are all plug valves quarter turn?

The most common type of plug valve is the 2 port model with an open and closed position. A plug valve also uses a quarter turn valve, which is useful where quick and frequent operation is essential. The valve ends can be flanged, hub type, or butt weld.
