Stop Valve-Things You Need To Know

Posted by daekyungcorporation on September 26th, 2013

Industrial machineries are very complicated. Many components are used in industrial machineries. Stop valve which is used to regulate the flow of liquids is one of them. This article discusses stop valves in detail.

What is a stop valve?

A stop valve is a valve that can be closed or opened at will, as by hand, for preventing or regulating flow, as of a liquid in a pipe; - in distinction from a valve which is operated by the action of the fluid it restrains.

Types of stop valves

There are many styles of stop valves, but two of the most common are gate valves and globe valves. Gate stop valves don’t restrict flow when not in use, but they take longer to move into position and are more likely to leak.

A Globe stop valve will interrupt flow at all times, but will move into position very quickly. Both of these valve types are common on piping systems of all shapes and sizes.

A ball stop valve is a valve with a spherical disc, the part of the valve which controls the flow through it. The sphere has a hole, or port, through the middle so that when the port is in line with both ends of the valve, flow will occur. When the valve is closed, the hole is perpendicular to the ends of the valve, and flow is blocked. The handle or lever will be inline with the port position letting you "see" the valve's position.

Uses of stop valves

The stop valves completely stop flow of any kind through the system, often to avert a crisis before it can get out of hand. As a result, these valves are generally close to important machinery or a human workstation. There are mostly used in:

•Optional attachments of excavators.(breakers and crushers)

•Can be used in multi channels at once

•Industrial processes

Features and advantages of stop valves

Stop valves have many advantages to offer, like:

•Dual seal type to block anything harmful.

•Superior durability and better efficiency.

•Easily expanded and compatible for various industry applications.
