The Gate Valve is used when the need exists for a device that allows an interruption or cut off in the flow of fluid. Gate Valves are not to be used for flow modulation as the high velocity through a partially open valve may result in erosive damage to the wedge and seats. Under normal operating conditions, the valve should remain either fully open or fully closed. Installation of a Gate Valve is independent of the flow direction.
Walworth's valves are designed and manufactured to meet the most stringent special requirements of various industries, including power generation, chemical and petrochemical, oil and gas, pulp and paper, mining, cryogenic and ship building applications.
