Globe Valves: Regulation Valves Used in Process Industry

Globe valve

Globe Valves: A globe valve is used for regulating flow in a pipeline. A globe valve consists of a movable disk-type element and a stationary ring seat in a generally spherical body. The gradual change in spacing between the disk and seat ring gives the globe valve good throttling ability. Globe Valves are available with a variety of bonnet types, ...

Ball Valve: Based on Body Construction Type

Ball valves are also classified based on the body construction : • Single piece design • Two piece design • Three piece design • The short pattern • The long pattern • Sandwich design. • Flush bottom design In the single piece design valve, the body will be cast/forged as one piece. The insertion of the ball will be through ...

Isolation Valves: Ball Valve Used in Process Industry

Ball valve

Introduction to Ball Valve- An Isolation Type of Valve The ball valve is normally used as positive shut off valves. The positive shut off is attained because of the soft seats. Special design is also available with ball having shaped port for  regulation. Metal seated ball valves are also available for high temperature service. They are also considered as quarter turn ...

Isolation Valves: Gate Valves Used in Piping Systems

Gate valve

Introduction to Gate Valves Gate valves (GV) are specifically used in isolation applications in various piping systems. And they operate in the fully opened or fully closed positions. Like other isolation types of valves like ball valve, plug valve, piston valve, diaphragm valve, butterfly valve, pinch valve,  gate valves are also isolation valves. Gate valves are multi-purpose bi-directional shutoff valves for commercial and ...

Classification of Valves Used in Piping Systems

Valves exceed any other piping component. Estimates reveal that a substantial portion, approximately 8-10%, of the total capital expenditure of the chemical process industry is used for the procurement of valves. In terms of the number of units also. Hence, proper thought should be given for the selection of valves. The first step in the selection is to determine exactly what function the valve ...

Gaskets: Non-metallic, Semi-metallic, Metallic and Dimensional Standards

The function of gaskets is to interpose a semi-plastic material between the flange facings, the material which, through deformation under load seals the minute surface irregularities to prevent leakage of the fluid. Gaskets can be generally divided into three main categories as follows: Non-metallic Gaskets Semi-metallic Gaskets Metallic Gaskets 1. Non-metallic Gaskets: Usually composite sheet materials are used with flat face ...
