Delrin® Vs. Titanium Plate Valves

Posted by Sam Kelton | September 27, 2017

Comprised of a disc and a seat, plate valves are an essential component in many types of pumping operations. The disc moves between the seat and retainer in relation to the variations in fluid pressure on its sides, thereby controlling the pressure flow. Other plate valve components include the bolt, the springs, and the plate.
