GA Figure 517 Eccentric Plug Valve, Round Port Exposed Service

3" to 24"

Productgroup: Eccentric Plug Valves

Medium: Water

The VAG/GA Industries Figure B517 ECO-centric Plug Valve is a rugged, field-proven valve that will provide many decades of trouble-free service. Its flow efficient round port provides lower head loss, higher capacity and better solids handling ability than a standard rectangular port plug valve.  In addition, the epoxy coated ductile iron body and cover provide superior strength and long term corrosion resistance while the spherically seating rubber coated plug provides drop tight shutoff in both directions.

Figure B517 exposed service eccentric plug valves are available with a 2” operating nut for quarter turn wrench operation (optional chain lever) or a worm gear with handwheel (optional chainwheel) or 2” nut.
