Compact and Inert Solvent Selection and Distribution

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.

Valves Hv

HV Standard Valves

The HV valve is physically the smallest valve and constitutes a basic unit for the control of fluids.
Valves Hvp

HVP Panel Mount Valves

The HVP valve is essentially the same as the HV valve except the HVP can be mounted into panels allowing for custom installation into control boards or instruments.
Valves Hvx

HVX Large Body Valves

HVX valves are physically the largest valves. A larger port internal diameter allows increased fluid flow even with moderately viscous fluids. HVX valves can be used free standing or panel-mounted using an optional locking nut.
