Industrial Plastic Gate Valves

From Asahi America
Asahi Gate Valves are widely used ON/OFF valves for large diameter, full port applications. When the valve is open, it allows a straight-through passage similar to the inside diameter of the connecting pipe providing minimal pressure drop.

The valve operates when the hand wheel and stem screw (or electric actuator) move a cylindrical plug (the gate) up and down at right angles to the fluid flow.

Traditionally, gate valves are used only for ON/OFF service, but because of Asahi’s unique sliding plug design, it provides a larger seating area and can also be used for throttling. The larger seating area, which runs 360 degrees around the cylindrical plug, virtually eliminates valve chatter commonly associated with gate valves. Asahi/America gate valves feature a solid polypropylene plug with a non-rising stem design.

Benefits of Industrial Plastic Valves

  • Low thermal conductivity.
  • Smoother than metal for better flow rates.
  • Made to last longer than metal, even when in contact with corrosive liquids.
  • Chemically resistant.
  • Corrosion resistant – much more so than metals.
  • Light in weight when compared to metals.
  • Lower in total material and installation costs than conventional metal systems.
  • More efficient than metals, especially in operational efficiencies including chemical inertness, resistance to permeation and impurity absorption, abrasion and freeze resistance.
