A check valve, clack valve, non-return valve, reflux valve, retention valve or one-way valve is a valve that allows fluid to flow through it in only one direction. Check valves have two-port valves, one for fluid to enter and the other for fluid to leave. There are various types of check valves used in a wide variety of applications.
A ball valve is a form of quarter-turn valve which uses a hollow, perforated, and pivoting ball to control flow through it. There are various types of ball valves available in heavy-duty materials that make them suitable for use in extreme temperatures, flammable applications, as well as with corrosive and aggressive gases and liquids.
Gate valves are designed to serve as isolation valves, they close off the flow of liquids rather than for flow regulation. When fully open it has no obstruction in the flow path, resulting in very low flow resistance.
The butterfly valve is used to regulate, control, and throttle the flow.
A 90° rotation of the handle provides a complete closure or opening of the valve.
Globe valves linear motion valve used to stop, start, and regulate the fluid flow in a pipeline and are used mainly in situations where throttling of the commodity is required.
A plug valve is a quarter-turn rotational motion valve that uses a cylindrical plug to control flow and is especially useful for high-pressure scenarios.
Float valves are used to control the levels in tanks and reservoirs automatically. Float valves are an integral part of a cistern or tank. Their sole function is to close off the flow of water at a predetermined level.
A needle valve is a type of valve with a small port and a threaded, needle-shaped plunger. Needle valves are commonly used to control flow and protect gauges from damage caused by sudden pressure surges of liquids and gases. It allows precise regulation of flow at low flow rates.
Diaphragm valves consist of a valve body with two or more ports, a diaphragm, and a “weir or saddle” or seat upon which the diaphragm closes the valve. They provide long-lasting affordable solutions for a wide range of corrosive and abrasive fluids.
Pinch valves offer pressurized cleaning and movement of the flowing media. Pinch valves can isolate and regulate abrasive, corrosive and fibrous fluids.
Manifolds valves connect two or more valves, allowing a variety of block valves to be combined in a single body configuration within a hydraulic system.
A choke valve is a type of control valve and used to control the flow rate and reduce pressure for the processing of produced fluids which are further downstream.
Pressure gauge valves are installed in the piping to function as shut-off valves for a pressure gauge.
Knife Gate Valves
Knife gate valves are designed with a sharp edge. The blade is used to cut through clogging of heavy liquids, they have been designed to be used in the harshest of environments.
Block & Bleed Valves
A block & bleed valve can be used in instances where piping needs isolation for maintenance or to prevent product contamination. A double block & bleed valve system can save weight on the piping system, and space as it can replace 3 separate valves. The primary function of a double block and bleed system is for isolation and the secondary function is for intervention. It can be used in aggressive environments.
Backflow preventers are designed to supply maximum protection against backflow caused by negative pressure or backpressure. They are designed to protect potable water supplies from contamination or pollution by only allowing water to flow in one direction, but never in the opposite direction.
Valves are available in various materials depending on the industry in which the valve is used. Depending on the properties required, materials for valves can be brass, bronze, carbon steel, cast iron, stainless steel, glass-filled PTFE, and plastics. Contact us for more information today.
