Where is the gate valve used
The gate valve is used in some pipelines that need to cut off the flow of medium. The diameter of the pipeline is DN ≥ 50mm. Of course, gate valve is also used for the small caliber cutting device. The function of gate valve is the valve that the gate moves along the vertical direction of the path center line. The main function of gate valve in the pipeline is to cut off flow of medium.
Gate valve has unique structure, smaller flow resistance than butterfly valve and better sealing performance. The gate valve switch is laborious and the opening and closing speed is slow, so it is not suitable for frequent operation or emergency cut-off. Gate valve can only be fully opened and closed, so it cannot be used for regulating flow. To sum up, gate valves are mostly used to cut off the flow of medium in pipelines with strict requirements on sealing performance and without frequent opening and closing.
The adaptability of gate valve is stronger than butterfly valve, and it can be used in high temperature, low temperature, high pressure, low pressure and other working conditions. In steam pipes and large-diameter water supply pipes, gate valves are also suitable because of their high sealing performance and low fluid resistance
