General Valve Four-way Diverter Valve
Stock available today in 3″ – 16″, ANSI 150# – 600#
The GENERAL VALVE Four-Way diverter valve does not rely on line pressure or external hydraulic pressure for positive sealing.
The seating elements, or slips, move perpendicularly against the face of the ports. The seals themselves are highly resilient elastomers that are either bonded or mechanically retained in the slips. Retraction of the slips away from the body prior to cycling prevents friction and abrasion, which can damage seals. There is never any sliding or rubbing of the seals against the valve body or ports.
Metal-to-metal secondary seating prevents overcompression of the resilient primary seal. Mechanical retraction and compression ensures no-leak stream separation and longer life.
