- Exclusive TRUE Bi-directional design
- CAD/CAM Design
- High quality castings
- Unequaled craftsmanship
- Advanced manufacturing procedures
Single piece plug/stem is designed for a quick lift camming motion to provide both low torque and reduced wear of the plug face elastomer. The elastomer extends along the stem in both directions to protect the integral tunnions and form the bearing interference. A wide range of plug elastomers are available to assure complete fluid compatibility.
The high stresses associated with compression gasketing have been eliminated by incorporating high quality o-rings into our bonnet design.
Valve ports have been enlarged and tapered to reduce pressure drop and provide enhanced handling of municipal sludges.
Travel stops are integral for full travel indication in both directions. Intermediate positions are indicated in 10 degree increments. Positive indication is given on lever and gear operated valves.
The Homestead eccentric body casting is in ASTM A126 Class B cast iron and conforms to the leading standard for wall thickness. Flange thickness, diameter and drilling fully conform to ANSI B16.1 Class 125. Alternative flanged, screwed or mechanical joint ends are available. A high quality two-part epoxy coating can be applied externally and internally to protect the casting integrity and assure long, trouble-free performance.
Homestead's eccentric valve seat has been geometrically optimized for low torque operation and extended life. A 90% raised welded nickel seat is incorporated to resist the effects of corrosion and erosion.
Homestead's fully adjustable seals assure stem sealing in even the most demanding applications.
316 stainless steel radial bearings are utilized to assure long trouble-free operation.
