Gate and Globe Valves Philippines

What are Valves?
Valves are products that are rarely noticed, yet they play a vital role in our daily life. Each time you turn on a water faucet or a gas range, or use your water heater, you operate a valve. Valves help preserve our quality of life by controlling flow of all types. They are essential to our homes and to virtually all manufacturing processes, as well as every industrial plant and system.

There are a large variety of valves and valve configurations for a wide variety of purposes and conditions: different uses (on/off, control), different fluids (liquid or gas; combustible, toxic or corrosive), different materials (metal or nonmetal) and different pressure and temperature conditions (low, medium or high pressure applications and low-, room- or high-temperature applications).

What is the difference between globe valve and gate valve?

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.

Gate Valve
Globe 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.

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.

What is the Advantage of a Gate Valve over Globe Valve?

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.
