The cornerstone of Jordan Valve is the advanced sliding gate technology. The unique sliding gate design is recognized throughout the world and provides long and accurate performance for a wide range of process and utility applications.
The sliding gate is not only a unique design, it provides unique benefits compared with alternative rising stem valves. In addition to straight-through flow, excellent rangeability and short stroke-fast response, the sliding gate offers:
- Quiet operation with no chatter
- Tight shut-off with self-cleaning seats
- No field lapping as seats are self-lapping
- Easy maintenance with interchangeable seats
- Smaller size and lighter weight
