Ball Valve

Ball Valve

A ball valve is a form of quarter-turn valve which uses a hollow, perforated and pivoting ball (called a "floating ball") to control flow through it. It is open when the ball's hole is in line with the flow and closed when it is pivoted 90-degrees by the valve handle. The handle lies flat in alignment with the flow when open, and is perpendicular to it when closed, making for easy visual confirmation of the valve's status.

Pressure Relief Valve

Pressure Relief Valve

A pressure Relief Valve is a safety device designed to protect a pressurized vessel or system during an over pressure event. An overpressure event refers to any condition which would cause pressure in a vessel or system to increase beyond the specified design pressure or maximum allowable working pressure (MAWP). The primary purpose of a pressure Relief Valve is protection of life and property by venting fluid from an overpressurized vessel.Many electronic, pneumatic and hydraulic systems exist today to control fluid system variables, such as pressure, temperature and flo

Gate Valve

Gate Valve
  • The Gate valve is a linear actuating  valve used as flow isolater in a fluid pipeline.  As the name says the gate valve, a flat  circular or rectangular plate acts as a 'gate' in a pipeline. We call this plate as disc ,gate or wedge. When the valve actuates down the gate slice the fluid  to total shut off .The disc can moved up fully into the upper portion of the body and results no hindrance to the fluid flow cross section area.  This  makes the valve  full open with very less pressure drop.

Diverter Valve

Diverter Valve

Diverter Valves are processing valves designed to direct flow from an inlet to one of two or more outlets. They can also be used for flow control and to converge two lines into one. Diverter Valves are primarily used to handle powders, dry solids and slurries, although some types are available that can handle liquid service. They are ideal for applications where the conveying or pumping of materials to multiple vessels or silos is needed.

Introduction to Float Valve / Ballcock Valve

Ballcock valve is used to maintain fluid level in a storage tank or a sump. Ballcock Valves are also known as Float Valve or Ball Tap. As the name indicate it consists of a ball shaped float which sense the current level of the fluid and actuate the valve to open or close depending on the fluid level.

Butterfly Valve

Butterfly Valve

A butterfly valve is a valve which can be used for isolating or regulating flow. The closing mechanism takes the form of a disk. Operation is similar to that of a ball valve, which allows for quick shut off. Butterfly valves are generally favored because they are lower in cost to other valve designs as well as being lighter in weight, meaning less support is required. The disc is positioned in the center of the pipe, passing through the disc is a rod connected to an actuator on the outside of the valve. Rotating the actuator turns the disc either parallel or perpendicular to the flow.
