Plug Valves

MstnLand provides plug valve products of high performance, including Inverted pressure plug vale, Sleeve-type soft sealing plug valve, Jacket plug valve, Orbit plug valve, Flange-connection lifting plug valve, 3-way and 4-way plug valve.


Plug valves are the valves with cylindrical or conically tapered "plugs" which can be rotated inside the valve body to control flow inside the valve. The plugs in plug valves have one or more hollow passageways going sideways through the plug, so that fluid can run through the plug when the valve is open. Plug valves are easy-operated and usually economical.




Advantages of Plug Valves


1. The plug valve is used for frequent operation, and it opens and closes quickly and easily.

2. The fluid resistance of the plug valve is small.

3. The plug valve is simple in structure, relatively small in size, light in weight, and easy to maintain.

4. Good sealing performance.

5. Not limited by the installation direction, the flow direction of the medium can be arbitrary.

6. No vibration and low noise.



The Installation and Maintenance of Plug Valves


When installing the plug valve, in order to prevent damage to the plug valve and ensure the full performance of the plug valve, the following four points should be paid attention to:

1. Make sure the plug valve is open. Heat the pipes first. Transfer as much heat as possible from the pipe to the stopcock. Avoid extending the heating time of the plug valve itself.

2. Use gauze or wire brush to remove pipes and cut parts to make their metal surfaces glow and shine. Steel wool is not recommended.

3. First cut the pipe in the vertical direction, trim and remove the burrs, and measure the pipe diameter.

4. Apply flux to the outside of the pipe and the inside of the welding hood, the flux must completely cover the welding surface. Please use flux sparingly.



The Selection Principle of Plug Valves


According to the structural characteristics of the plug valve and the design functions, it can be selected according to the following principles.

①It is used to distribute the medium and change the flow direction of the medium. The working temperature is not higher than 300℃, the nominal pressure PN is less than or equal to 1.6MPa, and the nominal diameter is not more than 300mm. It is recommended to use a multi-channel plug valve.

②It is recommended to use austenitic stainless steel for the equipment and pipelines of food enterprises such as milk, juice, beer, and pharmaceutical factories.

③In the branch pipes, refining and cleaning equipment of oil field exploitation, natural gas field exploitation, pipeline transportation, the nominal pressure level is not greater than Class300, and the nominal diameter is not greater than 300mm, it is recommended to use oil-sealed conical plug valves.

④In the branch pipes, refining and cleaning equipment of oilfield exploitation, natural gas exploitation, pipeline transportation, the nominal pressure level is not greater than Class7500, the nominal diameter is not greater than 900mm, and the working temperature is not higher than 340℃, it is recommended to use oil-sealed conical plug valves.

⑤ In the large-scale chemical industry, in the pipelines and equipment containing corrosive media, where the opening or closing speed is required to be fast, the teflon sleeve sealing conical plug valve can be selected for the nitric acid-based medium; For acetic acid-based media, Crl8Nil 2M02Ti stainless steel inlaid PTFE sleeve can be used to seal conical plug valve.

⑥ In the pipelines and equipment of gas, natural gas and HVAC systems, the nominal diameter is not greater than 200nm, and packing type conical plug valves should be used.
