This company’s Cam-Centric plug valves (photo) feature 100% port, which makes them a suitable choice for applications where slurries, grit or solids are present. The valves’ eccentric action allows the plug to rotate and lift out of its seated position, thus minimizing rubbing or scraping. Features such as a heavy-duty, fully rubber-encapsulated plug, welded nickel seat, grit-seals and V-Type packing provide reliable operation. The valves are available with a variety of materials options, including fusion-bonded epoxy, rubber lining and glass-lining coatings. — Val-Matic Corp., Elmhurst, Ill.
