What is a Gate Valve?

The gate valve derives its name from the presence of a closure component known as a gate, which can stop the flow of fluid through the pipe.

Within the gate valve’s body, there is a vertical disc that moves up and down perpendicular to the pipe’s flow direction. This movement either opens or closes the valve, employing the wedge-lock effect of the disc to block the flow.

Gate valves are ideal for regulating flow by enabling full opening or complete closure. By turning the handle counterclockwise, the disc is raised, allowing the flow to pass through the valve. Conversely, rotating the handle clockwise lowers the disc, restricting the flow.


Parts of a Gate Valve

Extended Body

Body is used for tapping of pressure vessels and header lines for vents, drains, or takeoff lines and instrumentation.

Welded Bonnet

Often used for gas and toxic flow line application.

O S & Y

Outside screw and yoke design. Generally used for all gate valves.

Pressure Seal

On a pressure-seal valve, the higher the body cavity pressure, the greater the force on the gasket. Pressure-seal bonnets are used extensively for high-pressure high-temperature applications, such as the power industry. Pressure-seal valves are much lighter than their corresponding bolted bonnet designs. Due to the pressure energization of the seal ring, they are normally not used in pressure classes below ANSI class 600.

Extended Stem

Stem extended at bonnet for cryogenic, pressure seal, and subterranean applications.

Raising Stem

Standard design of the stem where the threading will be in the top portion and gives the drive to move the stem up pulling the wedge, In this case, the female thread will be in the hand wheel.

Non Raising Stem

This design of stem is used in water applications where the threading is the bottom portion of the stem and gives the drive to move the wedge up, in this case, the female thread will be in the wedge.

Solid Wedge

One Single solid piece, Most commonly used for small-size gate valves .because of its simplicity and strength.

Flexible Wedged

By the addition of a groove or slot around its periphery, the flexible disc can adapt to temperature changes and adverse piping stresses without binding. 

Renewable seat

These seats can be replaced easily if required mostly they will be threaded seats.

Integral Seat

They are machined in the body or welded to the body.
