Asahi/America Gate Valves are widely used ON/OFF valves for large diameter, full-port applications. When the valve is fully open, it allows straight-through passage through an opening that is essentially the same size as the inside diameter of the connecting pipe. Asahi/America Gate Valves are traditionally used for ON/OFF service, but because of the unique sliding plug design, which provides a larger seating area than conventional gate valves, it can be used in throttling applications. Asahi/America Gate Valves feature two different designs of plugs, one with a solid polypropylene plug and the other with a resilient elastomer plug. Each valve is specifically designed to handle unique corrosive applications.
