What are the advantages of gate valves

Among various types of valves, gate valves are the most widely used. Gate valve refers to a valve whose closing member (gate) moves along the vertical direction of the channel axis. It is mainly used to cut off the medium on the pipeline, that is, fully open or fully closed. Generally, gate valves cannot be used for throttling. It can be used for high temperature and high pressure, and can be used for a variety of different media. Gate valves are generally not used in pipelines that transport mud and viscous media.

    Gate valve has the following advantages:

    1. The fluid resistance is small and the reliability is strong;

    2. The torque required for opening and closing is small.

    3. It can be used on the ring network pipeline where the medium flows in two directions, that is to say, the flow direction of the medium is not restricted.

    4. When fully open, the erosion of the working medium on the sealing surface is smaller than that of the stop valve.

    5. The shape is relatively simple, and the manufacturing process is better.

    6. The structure length is relatively small.

    Because gate valves have many advantages, they have a wide range of applications. Generally, DN≥50 pipelines use gate valves as the device to cut off the medium. Even in some small-diameter pipelines (such as DN15~40), some gate valves are still reserved.
