The Importance of Proper Valve Sizing: Tips and Tricks from Our Catalog
The most common type of triple offset valve is a Cam-action or Right Angled Cone design. These designs prevent the metal sealing components from rubbing against each other until the valve is closed, resulting in a more precise seal and longer service life. They are also abrasion-resistant and highly reliable. The cam-action or right angled cone also ensures there is no void between the sealing components, so there is less chance of leaking fluid.
