Orbital Plug Valve
Orbital Plug Valve

Product Overview:Athena engineering S.R.L Orbit plug valve is a general double block and bleed plug valve used to cut the connection of pipelines medium that is used in various industries such as petroleum, chemical industry, chemical fertilizer, power industry etc under nominal pressure of CLASS150-900LBS and working temperature of -29-180 °CWhen the valve is fully opened, the channel of plug is in alignment with the channel of valve body, which can ensure ideal and lowest decrease on pressure.When the hand wheel is turned, dbb plug valve will rotate toward the closing direction and at the same time draft the rotation of valve disc by 90 degree; when the hand wheel is turned further on,the plug will be pressed down,and make the valve disc open to two sides, so that the valve disc will be in firm contact with the valve seat and close the valve.When the hand wheel is turned inversely, first of all the plug will move upward,and the valve disc and valve seat will be separated; if the hand wheel is turned further on, till the valve disc is turned by 90 degree driven by the plug and finally the channel of plug will be in alignment with the channel of valve body, so that the valve is fully opened.
The advantage of this type of valve is that, during the opening and closing of valve, the valve disc and valve seat is separated and there is no friction and thus sealing face has no abrasion in the process; at the same time, soft seal is applied for sealing, so that there will be no leakage in the process of closing.
