Lined Special Service Plug Valves
Special Service Valves
Whether you are looking for a valve to suit a specific application, or want to customize a standard FluoroSeal® Plug Valve, you have come to the right place. Our special service valves provide you with both an array of turn-key solutions and the ability to fully match your application needs.
CAGED CONTROL PLUG VALVES
The Caged Control Valve is ideal for abrasive applications with high solids concentrations and is commonly used in both throttling and on/off applications. Caged valves have been used successfully in many critical applications in the Mining, Pulp & Paper, and Chemical Processing industries.
The design of the Caged Control Valve provides maximum protection to the polymer sealing surfaces in the plug valves. The key to the caged design is that the PTFE sleeve in the valve is never directly exposed to the process flow. This allows the sleeve to maintain its sealing integrity in abrasive applications.
SPECIAL CLEANING PLUG VALVES
FluoroSeal® Special Cleaning Plug Valves can be prepared for a variety of demanding service applications, such as hydrogen, isocyanate, oxygen, phosgene and chlorine.
In the case of chlorine, FluoroSeal® Chlorine Service Valves are provided with a vented plug to relieve pressure to the upstream side. This modification results in a uni-directional valve which is indicated on the valve with a flow direction arrow.
FluoroSeal® Sleeved Plug Valves are manufactured in accordance with the recommendations of the Chlorine Institute Pamphlet 6 and provide superior performance on this demanding application. All FluoroSeal® Chlorine Valves are made from thoroughly cleaned and dried components under controlled conditions and this control is maintained throughout parts preparation, assembly, testing and special protective packaging.
FIRE SAFE SLEEVED PLUG VALVES
FluoroSeal® Sleeved Plug Valves with the Fire Safe top seal have been tested and certified by an independent laboratory to the requirements of API 607, Fifth Edition (ISO 10497-5) for external leakage.
FluoroSeal® Fire Safe Valves also utilize a vented plug designed to relieve pressure buildup resulting from expansion of the service media within the plug, due to elevated temperatures caused by fire. The pressure is relieved to the upstream side, providing a preferred flow direction indicated by an arrow on the valve cover.
