The Structural Characteristics of Sanitary Plug Valves
Sanitary plug valves have four major structural characteristics:
1. Sanitary plug valves are among the first sanitary valves to be used by human beings in history. As a result of simple structure, quick opening and closing (opening and closing can be achieved when the plug rotates one-quarter round), easy operation, small fluid resistance, they are still widely used today. Now they’re mainly used in circumstances where the pressure is low, the diameter is small and the medium temperature is not high.
2. Sanitary plug valves are mainly used in pipelines to cut off, lift and change flow direction of the medium. They’re adaptable to multi-channel structure, so that one single valve can have two, three or even four different flow channels, which can simplify the design of the piping system, reduce the amount of valve doors and some connecting accessories the equipment requires.
3. Fluids in sanitary plug valves flow directly through, the resistance is small, and the opening and closing is easy and fast.
4. All the other functions that can be achieved according to the structural characteristics and design of sanitary plug valves.
