    Why Choosing Sanitary Valve Rather Than Industrial Valve

    A valve is a device that regulates, directs or controls the flow of a fluid (gases, liquids, fluidized solids, or slurries) by opening, closing, or partially obstructing various passageways. Currently, most valves in the market are industrial valves, but sanitary valves do have their own advantages in some specific industries. Read on and find the difference between these two types of valves. As the name implies, the sanitary valves refer to those which meet the health standards, food standard and medical standard. The valve body shall meet the hygienic standard of stainless steel and all contact parts with the medium shall be mirror polished, both polishing and cleanliness are subject…

    Two Basic Types of Butterfly Valve: Lug & Wafer

    About butterfly valve Butterfly valves have been around for a long time and have been used more and more widely in various industries since the 1930s when they first came out. Butterfly valves are usually made of cast iron and their name is based on the function of their discs. There are several different types of butterfly valves, but there are always two basic types of butterfly valves — lug and wafer. Butterfly valves are classified as “quarter turn” valves. The valve can be opened or closed by rotating the metal disk of the butterfly valve a quarter turn. When the butterfly valve is fully open, the fluid is allowed…

    Comparison between floating ball valve and Trunnion ball valve

    What is a ball valve? A ball valve is a one-way valve that is opened and closed by pressure on a ball which fits into a cup-shaped opening. Generally, a ball valve has two entries, but there is also 3-way ball valve, as shown below. A 3-way ball valve has three entries. It may have an L or a T design as shown in the picture below. Depending on your own requirement, you can arrange the entries of the 3-way ball valve in the following three-way. 1. One inlet and two distribute 2. One inlet and one outlet with diverting a flow 3. Straight pass the fluid without No inlet…

    Valve Collection: 8 Types of Valve

    Gate Valve The gate valve is one of the most commonly used on-off valves that utilizes the gate to turn on (fully open) and cut off (fully closed) the media in the pipeline. The gate is lifted and lowered in a plane perpendicular to the center line of the gate seat passage and cut the medium in the pipeline like a gate, so it is called a gate valve. This type of valve cannot be used for throttling. Feautures: 1. The flow resistance is small. The inner medium passage of the valve body is straight so the medium flows in a straight line and the flow resistance is thus small.…

    Types of Valve and Their Pros and Cons

    Gate valve A gate valve is a valve that moves the closing member (gate) in the vertical direction of the channel axis. It is mainly used fully open or fully closed to shut off the medium in the pipeline. In general, gate valves are not available for regulated flow. It can be applied to low-temperature and low pressure or high temperature and high pressure, related to what kind of materials it is made of. However, gate valves are generally not used in pipelines for transporting media such as mud. Advantage 1 The fluid resistance is small; 2 The required torque for opening and closing is small; 3 can be used…
