Principle of operation
Fully closed position
In the full closed position, the segment stop has engaged with the lower body stop and the gate is wedged downward, expanding the gate and segment to form a tight seal against the upstream and downstream seats
When Operating towards the open position, the gate travels across the wedge angle of the segment. This retracts the assembly so that is will slide freely between the seat faces.
Fully open position
In the full open position, the segment stop has engaged the bonnet stop and the gate is wedged upward. This expands the segment and the gate into the seats, isolating the flow from the cavity.
