American Cone Valves are proven to provide dependable service under a wide range of operating conditions. Our Cone Valves feature full port openings through the body and plug, as well as fully-skirted plugs and precision machined and ground Monel seats.
While cone valves are used primarily as pump check (shutoff) valves, they also serve as excellent throttling valves. Full port waterway openings provide lower head loss and reduced energy costs. Cone valves can be outfitted with a variety of actuators, including hydraulic (with flow controls), electric, or manual. Actuators are mounted to an operating mechanism which is designed to lift, turn, and squeeze the metal seats for tight shut off. The mechanism design provides positive seating with minimal wear of the metal seats, enabling the valve to function effectively for many years of dependable service. The simplicity and efficiency of a cone valve, plus its many operating advantages, make this valve outstanding for a wide range of applications.
