Nordstrom plug valves are extremely versatile valves that are found widely in low-pressure sanitary and industrial applications, especially petroleum pipelines, chemical processing and related fields, and power plants.
They are high capacity valves that can be used for directional flow control, even in moderate vacuum systems. They can safely and efficiently handle gas and liquid fuel, and extreme temperature flow, such as boiler feed water, condensate, and similar elements. They can also be used to regulate the flow of liquids containing suspended solids (slurries).
Nordstrom Steel Plug Vavles are available in the following designs:
- Dynamic Balance
- Super Nordstrom
- Nordstrom Bolted Gland
Along with the following Plug Port Patterns:
- Regular Pattern provides the largest port opening
- Short Pattern provides the largest port area while matching the gate valve face to face dimensions
- Venturi Pattern provides optimized approach and discharge angles, plus smooth flow contours to provide minimum pressure drop.
