API 6A plug valve top or bottom entry plug valve

Short Description:

Introducing the high-quality plug valve, plug valves are valves with cylindrical or conically tapered “plugs” which can be rotated inside the valve body to control flow through the valve. The plugs in plug valves have one or more hollow passageways going sideways through the plug, so that fluid can flow through the plug when the valve is open.

✧ Description

The  plug valve is a necessary part that is utilized on the high pressure manifold for the cementing and fracturing operations in oil field and also suitable to control over the similar high pressure fluid. Featuring the compact structure, easy maintenance, small torque, rapid opening and easy operation, the plug valve is ideal for the cementing and fracturing manifolds.

In terms of operation, the plug valve can be actuated manually, hydraulic, or electrically, providing the flexibility to meet specific control and automation needs. For manual operation, the valve is equipped with a handwheel or lever that allows for easy and precise adjustment of the plug position. For automated operation, the valve can be equipped with actuators that respond to signals from a control system, enabling remote operation and accurate flow control.
