    Valve Encyclopedia: Ten Basic Types of Valves

    In this passage, I’m gonna explain to you how the globe, gate, ball, plug, butterfly, diaphragm, check, needle, pinch, and safety valves work. I’m also gonna tell you about the different types of valve classification, how valves get their names, and what valves actually do. So let’s start with the basics. How do we name a valve? Almost always, valves get their name from the type of discs used. The disc is the part of the valve that is used to open, close, or regulate the flow through the valve. Regulating the flow is referred to as throttling. Ball valve gets its name because of the ball-like shape of the…

    How to Choose the Right Butterfly Valve?

    The butterfly valve controls the flow of fluid through the conduit by a single valve disc mounted on the central shaft. The disc creates a variable orifice (see Figure 1). Butterfly valves can generally be divided into three basic types: damping valves, elastomeric seat valves, and high-performance valves. Damping valve The damper butterfly valve is actually a butterfly valve without a valve seat (see Figure 2). The valve disc in the valve does not touch the inner wall of the valve body. It does not cut off the fluid; it only decelerates the fluid in the pipe or flue because there is a gap between the outer diameter of the…

    Differences Between Sanitary Valves And Industrial Valves

    Sanitary valves are used in higher hygiene requirements occasions. It seems to have no difference compared with the industrial valves only from their appearances. In other words, the difference between sanitary valves and industrial valves is not obvious in some ways. Here’s a comparison. The biggest difference between the two valves is the raw materials used to manufacture them. Sanitary valves are used in the environment of high hygiene requirements such as pharmaceutical, food and daily commodities. These products are edible or having direct contact with human bodies. Therefore, there is high sanitation demand for the manufacturing machinery, and ordinary steel, iron, copper and other materials cannot meet the standard. For…

    An Overview of Sanitary Control Valve

    Control valves regulate the flow of liquids, gases, or a mixture of both as required. In its most basic form, a control valve has an adjustable aperture which is opened and closed manually as necessary—opening to increase the flow and closing to decrease the flow. Why do we need control valves? In many cases, the piping system requires a precise amount of constant flow to properly determine the size of the pump, piping and other accessories. If there is no proper flow control valve, the fluctuating system pressure will deviate from the design flow. The flow control valve should be constant. All valves in the system can be added together to help…
