Valves and Their Applications

This blog will look at the various uses and types of Valves. 

A Valve: What Is It?

The body (the outer shell), the trim (a group of changeable wetted components), the stem, the bonnet, and an actioning mechanism are the most important mechanical components that go into making a valve (manual lever, gear or actuator).

Cast body materials are used in commercial valves larger than 2 inches in diameter; forged steel bodies are used in valves with smaller bore sizes (typically 2 inches) or that require high pressure and temperature resistance. Ball Valves are the most commonly used valves.

Valves are one of the most important parts of any fluid-related system. They are fundamentally devices that open and close routes in piping systems to control fluid flow.

Valves are used in almost every industrial operation because of how they work, including those that treat sewage and water, generate electricity, irrigate crops, process oil, gas, and petroleum, manufacture chemicals and plastics, and more. 

As with any industrial item, the manufacturing process and, in particular, the firm that creates the product, can have a significant impact on the product's quality.

Valves of Various Types

Applications and Uses of Valves:

Ball Valves are used to control flow and pressure, as well as to shut off corrosive fluids, slurries, normal liquids, and gasses. They are used in the oil and gas industry, but also in many manufacturing sectors, chemical storage, and even residential applications.

Gate Valves are commonly used to completely stop fluid flow or to provide full flow in a pipeline when fully open. As a result, it can be used in either the fully closed or fully open position.

Butterfly valves are used in situations where space is limited. Butterfly valves, unlike gate valves, can be used to throttle or regulate flow as well as in the fully open and fully closed positions. In comparison to other types of valves, the pressure loss through a butterfly valve is minimal.
