Technova Cylindrical Plug Valves
Technova CPL uses a one-piece, top entry cylindrical plug to provide bubble tight shutoff while requiring 40% less torque than the conventional taper plug design. Unlike the taper plug, the CPL cylindrical plug does not torque into the seat to achieve shutoff.
The CPL seal is created by the resiliency imparted to the liner by the elastomer backing pads. Therefore, the seating and unseating torques can be controlled to achieve bubble tight shutoff at the rated pressure.
A uniform 2.5mm plug coating provides maximum permeation resistance and structural integrity for shutoff up to 225 psi and full vacuum. Encapsulations of PFA, PVDF, ETFE, and others allow the CPL to meet the requirements of a wide variety of applications. Solid metal plugs are also available in materials such as 316SS, Titanium, and other high alloys.
Full port plugs, available in 1/2" to 4", offer flow capacity equal to full port ball valves. V-Port plug configurations are available for control applications.
