Definition of a Globe Valve:

A globe valve is most commonly used in systems to open, close or throttle flow. 


It is named after its globular body. A globe valve has two halves of the body being separated by an internal baffle. It has a disc (ball, composition or plug) attached to a stem that swings up and down to control flow and a seat. The flow line is either parallel to or inclined towards the seats. It stops the flow of fluid by moving the disc against the flow stream. 

A globe valve is bi-directional, meaning the fluid can flow in either direction within the valve. It can be used both manually as well as automatically.


Applications of an API Globe Valve:

  • Applications for Steam
  • Feedwater, condenser air, chemical feed
  • Found in extraction drains and condensing air extraction systems
  • Fuel oil system
  • Piping in small sizes
  • Plumbing sector.
  • Pumps and compressors.
  • Suitable for systems requiring frequent stroking, vacuum, or a wide variety of temperature extremes.
  • Used as an Emergency shutdown valve
  • Used in low-point drains and high-point vents
  • Used in systems where flow control is required
  • Used in systems where leak tightness is important
  • Used in systems where pressure drop is not an issue
  • Water-cooling systems.


Advantages of an API Globe Valve:

  • The ability to turn off the device is excellent.
  • Cleaning and resurfacing the chairs is a breeze.
  • The disc can be used as a stop-check valve if it is not connected to the stem.
  • Pressure Bonnet of Seals
  • Stroke lengthening
  • A stem that does not rotate
  • Throttling skill that ranges from good to exceptional


Disadvantages of an API Globe Valve:

  • The valve lowers the pressure in the piping system.
  • Inside the valve, the fluid flow is not linear.
  • Valve seating necessitates more effort or a larger actuator.
  • A throttling flow runs beneath the seat, while a shutdown flow runs above it.


Industries that use API Globe Valve:

  • Electric power industry
  • Textile industry
  • Petroleum industry
  • Sewage
  • Construction
  • Oil and gas
  • Boilers
  • Steam
  • Pulp and paper
