29. August 2014 · Comments Off · Categories: Plug Valves

The seal of the metal to metal seated lift type plug valve is a kind of force sealing structure, of which each of the two sealing sets can work. The usage of the valve is not restricted by the direction of pipeline medium, of which the details are shown in figure 2.

The body and plug adopt taper surface sealing, which is reliable in tightness performance, being extensive in applications. The sealing surface of both the body and plug are treated with different techniques to meet different working condition requirements. The sealing surface of body appears heave, being convenient for machining and cleaning and not easy to accumulate the medium with grain or crystal medium.

When the valve (Manufactured by China valve supplier) lies on closing position, the plug is lifted by stem to a certain height, the plug is devoiced from body sealing surface and then turns at 90° to the opening position, afterward, the stem continues to move down to push the plug to the position of closing, when both the sealing surface of body and plug are of contacting sate. The process of closing valve reserves the process of opening,.i.e., the plug applies press by stem to sealing surface of plug. Due to the taper sealing surface, it is easy to ensure tightness performance of the plug. This kind of plug valve is also called the valve without gap, i.e., is nogap between two sealing trim parts.

                                                         Structure Features and Principle of Lift Type Plug Valves

There are varieties of structures for the lif type plug valves,which can be sorted as the soft seated and metal to metal seated based on different material. Theree are two kinds of basic action principles: one is that when the valve opens,the plug is lifted at definite height, and then the plug turns at 90°based till the valve is fully open. During the operation process, there is no wear and tear of the trim parts of the valve. The other is that based on the afore position,the plug goes down to the original opening position,in such a state, the trim parts are contacting.

Soft sealed lift type plug valves (Manufactured by Relia valve-China valve supplier).
1. Introduction on structure, features and action principle of the valve seat, up and bottom covers etc., of which the detailed structure is shown in Figure 1. The body adopts the structure of canister column, in which the surface is is hardened with differenttechniques to increase the hardness degree of the sealing surface and resistance performance of abrasion and corrosion of the valve to suit different working conditions. The plug is connected with sealing ring of seat by coattil groove structure,which is reliable in connection and ideal in accurate action.The soft sealing ring is embedded onto the seat by using special technique measures to avoid failing off. When the plug is on the closed position, as the plug is lifted upward, two seats with their sealing rings get limied by up and bottom covers and then sealing is devoiced from the body sealing surface due to the orbital action.After the sealing ring is completely devoiced from the body sealing surface, the plug with sealing ring seat turns at 90°to let the valve lay at opening state. When the plug valve closes, the plug moves down after the plug and seat sealing ring turns at 90°to bring the seat ring to be near the body sealing surface till the valve is under the state of totally sealed.

The main features of the plug valve (manufactured by China valve manufacturer) with this kind of structur are as below:

1) Soft seated structure is adopted, the contact between sealing surfaces sounds rigor and reliable with zero leakage.
2) During operation process, there is no contact between sealing surfaces. The plug valve appears no abrasion with long life surface.
3) The plug valve is with the function of double isolation, double bleeding, and fire safe. The plug valve is equipped with a pressure balance device to pervent the system from abnormal increase of pressure and to reduce the momentary resistance when the valve opens and closes.
4) The process of opening and closing is also averaged as two priods,which is convenient in operatio,but takes a bit longer time for closing to avoid as much as possible the phenomena of water hammer inside the pipelines.
5)This kind of plug valve can be maintained on line by disassembling the bottom cover to take out the sealing ring seats at the two sides of the plug for maintenance or replacement, which sounds simple and convenient.
