Plug Type Diverter Valves are specially designed to route powders and pellets with minimum degradation in pneumatic conveying systems. These valves are applied in the chemical, pharmaceutical, plastic, food, and other related industries. These valves consist of aluminum housing and end covers in which a plug with two pipes is installed.
Plug Valves are designed with cylindrical or conically-tapered plugs, which are rotated inside the valve body to control flow through the valve. The plugs in plug valves have one or more hollow passageways going sideways through the plug. Plug valves are used as simple shut-off valves in household natural gas lines. Plug valves are made with both tapered and cylindrical plugs. Plug valves are available in sizes as large as 34 in. and in pressure ratings as high as 10,000 psi. The plug valves are constructed of brass or stainless steel and TFE.
