Gate valve for power plant industries

Now these Gate valve is widely used in oil, gas, and power industry. Gate valve is normally used for isolation applications, where only full close or fully open position Gate valve gate movement is at right angel to flow of fluid. Most valves of this kind are designed to be either fully open or fully closed and may not function properly when they are only part-way open. there are two type of gate valve .one is non rising steam type and other is raising steam type ,in non raising type ,steam is threatened on the lower end in to gate . When hand wheel is rotated gate travel up and down .steam remain vertical stationary. In raising steam type valve, steam is raised vertically when the gate valve open.

-A sliding disk slides up and down in and out of the fluid in Gate valve

– Gate valve is good for high pressure drop and high temperature applications where operation is infrequent

-Manual operation or else multi-turn electric actuators are most common in Gate valve

FEATURES OF GATE VALE PARTS:-

Stem: Ensure seal performance and smooth operation

Gland bolt: stud for easy repacking

Art hole: For easy removal of retainer ring

Flexible wedge: Smooth operation with leak tight performance

Sleeve: Can be disassembled without split of yoke and stem

Thrust ball bearing: Easy and smooth operation

Yoke: Two arms design for rigidity and accessibility

Graphite gasket: Excellent sealing performance even under thermal cycling

Bonnet with cooling chamber: Maintains packing at normal temperature

Hard faced seat surface: Resistance to heat, corrosion and erosion

Features of Gate valve  :-

  1. Flexible wedge gate valves are designed for high pressure and high temperature steam applications where tight shutoff and reliable operation are critical.
  2. flexible wedge gate valves have a low pressure drop.
  3. The flexible wedge is of one piece and fully guided with cast central hub. It compensates for the distortion of the body seat by thermal cycling and bolt stresses from pipe connections and provides a tight seal in a low differential pressure condition. It also prevents sticking or galling in severe operating conditions.
  4. The body guide allows true linear operation of the seat face.
  5. The seat surface of body and disc are overlaid with satellite for reliable operation in a high differential pressure condition.

Gate valve Application:
