Product Announcement from XOMOX (A Crane Co. Company)
The design is simple and efficient. the cage is located within the plug and is fixed in the valve body. Bearings on the flow cage provide clearance between the plug and cage, allowing the plug to rotate freely.
The cage plug assembly protects the seat from erosion in throttling applications by shielding the soft seat from direct flow impingement at the valve ports. The cage mechanism also serves to reduce turbulence and the cutting action of high velocity liquids, slurries and gaseous vapors by providing a more direct, contoured flow path through the valve.
