Gate Valve

GATE VALVEĀ G005

The gate valve is shown on the left side of the drawing. This type of shut off valve offers very little resistance to flow when open compared to popular globe valves (shown on the right). The piping friction resistance is on the order of 10% of globe valve values.

Gate valves are the valves of choice in piping systems, especially in the suction piping.
