VALVE Distributors Pty Ltd supply Serck Audco Taper Plug valves, which are manufactured in sizes 1.2cm to 30.4cm and used on a wide variety of liquid, gaseous and slurry services. The Audco valve is derived from the plug cock design.
The tapered plug is held firmly into its tapered seat but can be adjusted so that complete leak tightness is achieved together with smooth valve operation.
The tapered seating surfaces of the plug and body are not exposed to the line fluid when the valve is in the open position, hence the effect of corrosion and erosion are confined to the less important parts of the valve.
There is a straight flow path through the valve, therefore there is very little resistance to flow and pressure loss is minimised.
