Pressure Balanced Lubricated Plug Valves – API 6D

Controlling the fluid flow is one of the important requirements in various industries. Special types of components and devices are used for the purpose. The valves are one such devices used to control the flow of fluids. Different types of valves are being used today, based on their application requirements. GND Consulting & Supply, LLC is one of the leading pressure balanced plug valve suppliers in the US. We source these valves from various trusted manufacturers, depending upon your requirements, and make them available to you.


Product Description

The pressure balanced lubricated plug valves feature a robust construction, which makes them capable of delivering good performance for a longer duration. Besides this, these valves are known for their easy In-line maintainability. The pressure balanced plug valves are extremely suited for applications involving pulsating and static high pressures. These valves have a system, which makes sure that the valve torque is reduced by the line pressure acting on the plug. Furthermore, this helps avoid any chances of plug seizure, though the plug is in a stationary position (either open or closed) for a prolonged time. When the plug valve is acting under full pressure, it is always a good idea to keep it lubricated with periodic injections. Also, the seat adjustment should also be made
