Hamilton (HV) Plug Valves provide an economical and flexible method of custom-building a fluid flow control system, from a simple on/off valve to a more complex multi-valve arrangement, using a combination of loop and distribution valves. The small valve body with its chemically inert PTFE/CTFE flow path is ideally suited for low pressure (100 psi) applications.
All HV Plug Valves allow you to select and interchange a wide variety of fittings, adapters and tubing, including male and female luers, FEP tubing assemblies, and adapters which thread directly into the valve providing an endless variety of valve configurations for any flow application.
Distribution valves are used to direct fluid to a number of locations. 2-, 3-, 4-, 6- and 8-port valves are available with a distribution type valve plug. The 2-, 3-, and 4-port distribution valves are available in HV, HVP and HVX body styles. The 6- and 8-port valves are available only in the HVX body style. The flow configuration drawings show the possible fluid flow paths for a 4-port valve with a distribution type plug.
• Wetted paths are chemically inert TEFLON® and Kel-F® materials (100 psig or less)
• Valves are for stand alone use or HVX and HVP valves can also be panel mounted
• Valve position is controlled manually via a handle attached to the valve stem
• Valve connections are via 1/4-28 UNF-2B (Unified Fine) fittings
