Homestead model 611, 1/2" FPT, straight-pattern lubricated plug valve (less handle) for blowing down both steam and hot water boilers. This valve is rated to 150 psi steam, 200 psi WOG, and 275°F. It uses a RE1005 handle and RE1015 lube sticks. Homestead plug valves have longer life due to its pressurized lubricant system. These quarter-turn valves require no mechanical adjustments packing glands, nuts, bolts, etc. Homestead's controlled lubrication prevents lubricant from entering the pipe line when over-lubricated.
