Gate Valve-

Features & Benefits

gate valve is generally used to completely shut off fluid flow or, in the fully open position, provide full flow in a pipeline. Thus it is used either in the fully closed or fully open positions. A gate valve consists of a valve body, seat and disc, a spindle, gland, and a wheel for operating the valve. The seat and the gate together perform the function of shutting off the flow of fluid

Gate valves are generally not suitable fon in which the valve may move from its assigned position. Also the gate and seat may be subject to excessive wear if the valve is partially open

The gate valves used in the mainlines carrying oil or gas must be of full bore or through conduit design to enable smooth passage of scrapers or pigs used for cleaning or monitoring pipelines. Such gate valves are referred to as full bore or through conduit gate valves
