This heavy duty class 800 forged carbon steel Gate Valve is suitable for the most demanding of process applications. When open the media will flow with a minimal amount of turbulence and pressure drop through the valve and industries where the isolation of viscous fluids and liquid are required.
The valve is designed to API602 and has an outside screw and yolk with rising stem. The handwheel operates the gate valve for both isolation applications only.
Why use gate valves: these valves provide a positive tight shut off in the horizontal or vertical position for process fluids in pipelines. They also offer a small amount of control and are used to throttle steam, gas or liquids. Easy to operate and the preferred choice over ball valves by engineers to isolate trapping stations.
