By-PRODUCTS PLANT Part - 13
I guess this post could go under multiple titles but for now I am building these valves for the by-products plant, although they could be used throughout the mill. Basically I need a ton and a half of gate valves in 1/2" through 3/8". The valve shown in the photos is from the Thomas Coke Works. It has a smooth housing unlike many valves with external reinforcing. A master was carefully made and a mold form built. The photo shows the 1/2" valve with half the mold rubber poured.
