4 Inch Gate Valve Class 150 Flanged End Gate Valve For Air / Water
What is Gate Valve?
A gate valve can be defined as a type of valve that used a gate or wedge type disk and the disk moves perpendicular to flow to start or stop the fluid flow in piping.
A gate valve is the most common type of valve used in any process plant. It is a linear motion valve used to start or stop fluid flow. In service, these valves are either in a fully open or fully closed position.
When the gate valve is fully open, the disk of a gate valve is completely removed from the flow. Therefore virtually no resistance to flow. Due to this very little pressure drops when fluid passes through a gate valve.
To achieve proper sealing, when the valve is fully closed, 360° surface contact is required between disk and seats.
Gate valves should not be used for regulation or throttling of flow because accurate control is not possible.
The high velocity of the flow in the partially open valve may cause erosion of the disc and seating surfaces and also creates vibration and noise.

Types of Gate Valves
There are three ways to classify the gate valve.
Types of Disk
Solid taper wedge
Split wedge or Parallel disks Valve
Types of Body Bonnet Joint
Types of Stem movement
Rising Stem or OS & Y Type (Outside Stem and Screw Type)
Non-rising Stem type
Gate Valve Applications
Gate valves are used in almost all fluid services such as air, fuel gas, feedwater, steam, lube oil, hydrocarbon, and all most any services.
Some special gate valve is used in slurry and powder product also such as knife gate valve
Advantages of Gate Valve
Gate valve provides good
Pressure drop during operation is very less.
Most of the gate valve can be used as bi-directional
They are suitable for high pressure and temperature application and required less maintenance
Types of gate valve based on body, bonnet connection
1st is screwed bonnet: This is the simplest design available and it is used for inexpensive valves.
2nd is bolted-bonnet: This is the most popular design and used in a large number of gate valves.
This requires a gasket to seal the joint between the body and bonnet.
3rd is Welded-Bonnet: This is a popular design where disassembly is not required. They are lighter
in weight than there bolted-bonnet counterparts.
4th one is Pressure-Seal Bonnet: This type is used extensively for high-pressure high-temperature
applications. The higher the body cavity pressure, the greater the force on the gasket in a pressure -seal valve.
