1. If the valve is still in the flowline ensure the line is not under pressure.
2. Rotate the handle (11) to the open position to ensure no pressure is traped inside the plug bore
3. Remove the grease fitting (12) and stop nut (13), take off the handle (11). The grease fitting may remain in position
during routine maintenance.
4. Remove body cap (10), using a cap wrench (part No. A21205) on a 2” valve or a suitable spanner on the hexagonal
top of the cap on a 1” valve.
5. Push the plug (3) out whilst rotating back and forth. If necessary, the plug may be gently knocked out with a soft faced
hammer and drift through the hole in the base of the body. Do not damage plug.
6. Remove segments (2) and (23) from the valve body cavity (1). They may be prised out using a screwdriver taking
care not to damage the body cavity during removal. Remove segment seal ring (17) from seal segments (2). Remove
plug seals (4) and (5) from the plug (3).
7. Remove body cap seal (16) from the body cap (10) and the spring (19) from the pins (20). The spring (20) may remain
in position during routine service if it is undamaged.

1. Thoroughly clean all parts of old grease and inspect for damage. We would recommend seal replacement. Some
solvents may damage elastomeric seals.
2. Replace grease fitting (12) if leaking or damaged. Replace spring (19) if worn or broken. Replace gasket (14).
3. The segments and the plug should be examined closely for damage. In the event that the plug or seal segmens are
lightly scratched or marked, it may be possible to remove these marks by rubbing gently with wet and dry
carborundum paper, maximum grit 1200. If at all in doubt and for best results we would recommend the damaged item
be replaced with a new part. If necessary remove stubborn particles and blemishes from the inside of the valve body
with wet and dry carborundum paper maximum grit 400.
4. Before commencing the rebuild of the valve ensure every part is thouroughly clean and free from foreign matter.

1. Apply a thin film of sealant (part No. 15333) to the seal segment surface that comes into contact with the plug valve
2. Fit the segment seal ring (17) into the groove on the seal segment. Install both segments (2) into the valve body (1),
ensuring they locate on pins (6) provided in the body cavity. Make sure segment seal rings remain in position.
3. Apply sealant to the surfaces of the support segments (23) that come into contact with the valve plug. Place in position
between the seal segments with the top edge aproximately ½” above the top edge of the seal segment, this will provide
a guide for inserting the plug.
4. Fit nylon plug seal (4) and ‘O’ring (5) to top and bottom of the plug (3). A small amount of sealant may be applied to
the bottom of the plug to secure the bottom seal in position. Apply sealant to the outside diameter of the plug.
5. Install the plug (3) into the body, using first the support segmants (23) and then the seal segments (2) as guides. Move
the support segments (23) fully into the body as the plug is installed. Ensure the bottom seals (4) and (5) remain on the
plug during assembly and the seals contact the base of the body.
6. Fit body cap seal (16) and back up ring (24) into the groove in the body cap (10). Ensure back up ring is installed on
thread side of the groove.
7. Ensure sealing surface in the body is clean before installing body cap (10). Apply a anti seize compound to the threads
and seals on the body cap (Anson part No. 15471). Install using cap wrench (part No. A21205) on a 2” valve or a
suitable spanner on the 1” valve. Once the cap has been screwed fully home, hit the wrench several times to tighten,
bearing in mind you will need to achieve a tightening torque of at least 1500 lbf.ft to achieve a seal.
8. Install spring (19) on pins (20). Align plug bore with the body bore and install handle (11), ensuring gasket (14) is in
position and spring pin (15) aligns with spring (19). Fix handle in position with stop nut (13)
9. Ensure the threads on grease fitting (12) and in plug (3) are clean, apply sealant (part No.20627) to the fitting before
screwing into the plug.
10. Thoroughly grease the valve through fitting (12) using Anson sealant (part No.15333) until grease enters the bore.

Operating Instructions
Anson cannot recommend specific maintenance intervals due to the wide range of pressures, temperatures and fluids
handled by these valves. The resposibility for setting the maintenance intervals must lie with the user. As a minimum we
would suggest the following :-

1. Frequent and regular inspection is vital in order to maintain the useful life of the plug and segments.
2. Re-inject sealant at regular intervals, dependant on service. Always re-grease if the valve has not been used for some
3. Re-inject valves with sealant immediately if solvents have been through the valve.
4. Always store the valve in the open position when not in use.
5. Plug valve sealant may oxidise or become contaminated during normal use of the valve. Old sealant cannot be totally
displaced by re-injection. The valve must be dismantled and serviced to remove old sealant.
6. Whenever the valve is dismantled take the opportunity to replace old seals with new ones.
7. Replace grease fittings when they become damaged.
8. Above all , do not wait for the valve to leak before undertaking routine maintenance. Regular inspection of internal
parts and injection of sealant will extend the useful life of the valve.
9. Springs should be a good fit and not slack. Replace when damaged or ineffective.
10. IF IN DOUBT ASK. We will be pleased to offer any assistance we can.
