Experts say that industrial valve manufacturers deal with different varieties of industrial valves ranging from pressure valves, pressure safety valves, safety valves among others. Technically, industrial valves come under the category of pipe fittings, although they come under a different segment. These valves are used for various purposes and in different fields such as military, residential, commercial, industrial etc.
There are different types of industrial valves which are quite popular in the market. They are pneumatic, hydraulic, solenoid, motor and manual. There are also other types of valves which are gaining popularity these days known as check valves, basic valves, needle valves, diaphragm valves, choke valves and butterfly valves.
Industrial valves are mostly manufactured in countries like India, China and other Asian countries. These valves are mostly used to control and regulate the flow of fluids like liquids, slurries and gases. In an open valve, the fluid direction is from a higher pressure towards a lower pressure. Today, these valves are made of stainless steel for it provides various benefits. One of the main benefits of manufacturing industrial valves using stainless steel is that steel is anti-corrosive. Apart from that, steel is anti resistive and is considered to be of a great resistance when it comes to chemical reactions.
Industrial globe valve is a type of valve that splits the pipe from inside and is somewhat parallel to the length of the pipe. Such valves provide excellent controls for normalizing the flow of fluid. Just as the name suggests, these valves are spherical in shape. Globe valves are mostly used in applications where the flow of liquid requires to be tuned finely. They have a plate having a hole in it and a plug or a disk that partially or completely fits inside the hole which slows or stops the flow of fluid.
