Welker Jet control valves

One of our leading Welker product ranges is the Welker Jet control valve. The Jet control valve from Welker consists of a rubber plug that expands through the use of a hydraulically operated piston and cylinder system. 

This places hydraulic pressure on the plug, which expands rapidly to seal against the inside of a fixed liner. In doing so, this generates a unique flow path for the media, such as aggressive petrochemicals.
