Tender valve

Post by cp4449 » Thu Jun 28, 2018 3:37 pm

Who makes a good tender valve for feeding a injector line? Also, can I use a globe valve for the steam, or should it be a different style?

Thanks in advance.

For the tank valve I use 90 deg. ball valves with an extender shaft thru the tank top. For injector starting valve I use globe valves with the treads machined off and installed backwards i.e. the steam pressure holds the valve closed.
