Orbital plug valve

Orbital plug valve, also known as bevel gear drive general valve, is suitable for aviation kerosene, crude oil, light oil, natural gas, liquefied gas, pipeline gas, chemical medium and other pipelines, as an ideal device to cut off the medium. The key to the working principle of the valve with double shutoff, double shutoff and relief function is the action of the two sealing slides installed on the cock.

The working principle of the orbital plug valve

When the orbital plug valve is fully opened, the passage of the plug is aligned with the passage of the valve body, which can ensure the ideal lowest pressure drop. Turn the handwheel plug to turn toward the valve, and at the same time drive the valve plate to rotate 90 degrees. When you continue to turn the handwheel, the plug will press down to open the valve to both sides, and the valve plate will tightly press on the valve seat. Close the valve; when the handwheel rotates in the opposite direction, first move the plug upwards to disengage the valve plate from the valve seat, continue to turn the handwheel, make the plug drive the valve plate to rotate 90 degrees, and finally the passage of the plug is the passage of the valve body Align so that the valve is in a fully open state.

Application of orbital plug valve

Orbital cock valves are mainly used in the metering system, metering calibration system, multi-branch pipe mixed transportation system, tank root partition, aviation fuel storage and transportation, airport fuel plugs, frequently operated feeding and unloading systems, etc. In working condition. The medium is aviation kerosene, light oil, natural gas, liquefied gas, pipeline gas and other pipelines, as an ideal device for cutting off the medium.

With relief device and function

The overpressure relief function of the valve cavity is in accordance with API 6D. All double-sealed valves must have relief devices and functions. The vented pressure difference is caused by changes in ambient temperature. When the double-sealed valve is closed, the volume of the medium accumulated in the valve cavity expands with the increase of ambient temperature, and the pressure gradually rises. If the pressure difference is not released in time, it will have a serious impact on the operation of the valve, or even appear The expansion of the valve causes serious hidden dangers to the safety of the system.

Unique L-shaped groove structure of orbital plug valve

The operating mechanism of the valve and the operating mechanism (screw sleeve) of the self-locking orbital plug valve adopt a unique L-shaped groove structure. Separate the axial linear movement of the cock from the 90° rotation movement, which makes the valve operation flexible and light. The gear transmission mechanism used is self-locking, and the trapezoidal thread is a heavy-duty trapezoidal thread, which can bear a greater load.

Frequently Asked Question

Do you have any question?

Usually available in cylindrical or conical shapes, plug valves are quarter-turn manual motion valves used for stopping or starting the flow of fluid. They offer on-off, diverting, as well as basic moderate throttling services.

Plug valves offer better performance in the term of cutting than ball valves, but that doesn't show obviously. The sealing surface of the plug valve is much larger than the ball valve and supplies a better sealing effect, but a greater torque and small diameter.

When an ORBIT valve begins to open, the core tilts away from the seat and line flow passes uniformly around the core face. This eliminates the localized high-velocity flow that typically creates uneven seat wear in ordinary ball, gate and plug valves. The core then rotates to the fully open position.
