James Duva, Inc. supplies the gate valve you need in addition to many other valves and piping you may have. At James Duva, we make it our priority to provide durable products.
A gate valve opens by hoisting a wedge-shaped gate so that it does not block the path of gas or fluid. Much like the ball & globe valve, the gate valve opens and closes the line of supply. However, it is important to know which one you need for the job you’re using.
The main distinction between the gate valve and the other valves is the control over the flow. The gate valve is only to be left in a completely open or completely closed position. When water passes through the gate valve in the partially closed position, this creates a water hammer that will vibrate the pipe.
Unlike traditional quarter-turn valves, you can adjust the flow with, the gate valve is best used in applications where the flow rate does not need to change. That’s why some municipalities need the valve found closest to the water meter to be a gate valve.
Gate Valves Are Durable and Dependable
You can use gate valves for both liquid and gas applications depending on a couple of different factors. In piping systems transporting neutral liquids, water, and wastewater, are all items that can be taken care of using this valve. Be sure to make sure that the temperature of these liquids doesn’t fall outside of the range of -4° to 158°F (-20° to 70°C). Also, make sure that the flow doesn’t get past 5 m/s and a 16 bar differential pressure.
For gas related applications make sure the temperature falls in between the range of -4° to 140°F (-20° to 60°C). Additionally, the maximum flow velocity should be 20 m/s max with up to a 16 bar differential pressure.
