We are leading Industrial Valve Supplier, Manufacturer & Exporter, offering quality valves for various industrial as well as commercial applications.

Industrial valves are widely used in engineering, manufacturing, commercial and scientific communities. The valve's primary function is to regulate water flow and pressure while also releasing air from the system. In the water segment, valves play a significant role. Many aspects of everyday mechanical systems, such as the HVAC and water system in an office, require water valves.

Characteristics of the Most Common Valves Used in the Water Industry

There are many type of industrial valves can be used in water industry but some most helpful valves are given as below.

Gate Valves- The most important valves in the distribution system are gate valves. The on/off control of gate valves is the most common use and also known as isolating valves. Gate valves stop liquid from flowing in both directions.

Manual Gate Valve

Manual gate valves are most utilised in the pipe line system for their effective flow regulations. They're simple to set up and keep up with. Gate valves are low-cost and widely employed in the water, petroleum and many other industries due to their ability to cut through liquids.

Butterfly Valve- Butterfly valves can control, regulate or isolate large fluid flow effectively. Because it provides a 90-degree rotating motion for stoppage, the butterfly valve is also known as a quarter turn valve. They were frequently huge in size but short in length and light in weight. They only require a small amount of torque and space in comparison with any other valves.

Ball Valve- Ball valves are priority valves for fluid control. A ball rotates between two circular seats consisting of a kind of PTFE and co-polymer in ball valves. They are available in a tiny size range of 1/2" to 12". These valves are utilised in situations that require a higher level of pressure.

Manual Ball Valve

Ball valves require less force to operate than gate valves, have a smaller size, and are lighter than gate valves. Ball valve manufacturers offer them in various type and specifications, most preferable Manual, Pneumatic and Electric Ball Valves.

Plug Valves- By rotating the conically tapered plugs inside the valve body, plug valves may control the flow. They have a very simple design with few parts, and they are very easy to maintain and repair. They have a cheap cost per head and a drip-tight seal.

Regulating Valves- Regulating valves are designed to provide for direct control of flow rate as well as significant control of process quantities, i.e. flow/pressure reduction. Regulating valves can sustain a large head loss and come with different control scenarios. These valves consist of a regulating unit that changes the flow cross-section and are used on trunk or industrial pipelines.

Vacuum Release Valves- These sorts of valves, as the name implies, release air during the filling and testing of pipes, as well as air that naturally accumulates in pipes. It enables air into the pipe when draining and ensures the pipeline's carrying capacity.
