Principles of selecting gate valve, the gate valve should be the first choice when shut-off valves need to be used for pipelines. Normally, globe valves are a little bit expensive than gate valves, but a little cheaper than metal-sealed ball valves, seldom used as shut-off valves for main pipelines.
Butterfly valves are used in a wide range of applications. The variety and quantity used continue to expand, and the development of high temperature, high pressure, large diameter, high sealing, long life, excellent regulation characteristics, and multi-valve. Its reliability and other performance.
Compared with the gate valve, the globe valve has the advantages of simple structure, good sealing performance and convenient manufacturing and maintenance; The gate valve and the globe valve are full-open and fully-closed valves.
Butterfly valves and gate valves are indispensable components in fluid pipelines, and they have a very wide range of applications. There is a difference in the function of the two, but the butterfly valve and the gate valve are more different. The most difference is appearance.
