What is a pressure balanced plug valve

Pressure balanced plug valves are used where pulsating or static high pressures are present. The benefi t a dynamic pressure balanced inverted plug gives is that it ensures equalised pressure between the plug and upper and lower body chambers.
Pressure is balanced by two holes in the plug which connects the plug port with the lower and upper cavities.The hole in the upper end is provided with a check valve so the pressure is always equal to the large end cavity and it is always equal to or greater than the line pressure in the small end cavity.

About pressure balance plug valve

1, product rational structure, reliable sealing, excellent performance, aesthetically pleasing.
2, the valve opening and closing process was conducted in sealing face from the state, not cause of sealing surface wear.
3, two-way flow, it is more convenient to install and use4 parts material and flange size, according to actual working condition of reasonable selecting or user requirements, to meet all kinds of engineering needs.

About pressure balance plug valve

Use of back pressure balance plug valve

The back pressure balance plug valve is widely used in petroleum, chemical, pharmaceutical, fertilizer, electric power and other industries. The nominal pressure is CLASS150-1500LBS, the working temperature is -40~450°C, water, gas, steam, oil, etc.

Use of back pressure balance plug valve


It has logical structure, reliable seal, excellent performance and nice design.

It has the structure of flip-chip balanceable pressure and light on/off operation.

An oil groove is set between valve body and seal surface, which may infuse the seal grease to increase the seal capability.

The part materials and flange dimension may be selected according to current operating condition and users requirement, so that meet the requirements of various engineering.

Frequently Asked Question

Do you have any question?

Uniqueness of dynamically and pressure balanced design together with inverted plug design, assure prevention of locking, which has been the problems of conventional design at higher pressure application. Pressure Balance Lubricated Plug valves are manufactured using a wide range of materials to suit the service applications..

In order to reduce the torque of conventional hard-seal plug valves, pressure balanced plug valves are often used.

Pressure-balanced inverted oil-sealed plug valves are widely used in pipelines in various working conditions such as petrochemical, pharmaceutical, fertilizer, and power industries to cut off or connect pipeline media. .
