Gate and Globe Valves Philippines

Gate and globe valves are two common types of valves used in a wide range of industries for controlling the flow of fluids and gases. While they serve the same general purpose, they have distinct design and function differences.

A gate valve is a type of valve that uses a gate or wedge-shaped disk to control the flow of fluids or gases. The disk is typically perpendicular to the flow path when fully open, allowing for maximum flow. To close the valve, the disk is moved parallel to the flow path, creating a tight seal. Gate valves are commonly used in applications where a full bore, unobstructed flow path is required, such as in pipelines, oil and gas production, and water treatment plants.

A globe valve, on the other hand, uses a globe-shaped disk to control the flow of fluids or gases. The disk moves up and down along a vertical axis to open or close the valve. This design provides precise control over the flow rate and is often used in applications where a throttling valve is required, such as in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Globe valves can also be used for on/off applications but are not as efficient in this regard as gate valves.

Globe valves are usually used for flow regulation, while gate valves are often used for on-off control. Gate valves are cheaper than globe valves. Gate valves have little pressure drop across the valve and provide little resistance to the media flow in the open position.
Gate valves are an energy-efficient valve option, as the movement direction or ram is perpendicular to the media flow direction. As a result, less power is consumed when opening or closing the gate valves in comparison to globe valves. Due to their energy efficiency, they help reduce total ownership costs.
