Industrial Valves

A valve is a device or natural object that regulates, directs, or controls the flow of a fluid by opening, closing, or partially blocking various passageways. Valves are technically accessories, but are usually treated as a separate category. Valves are used to start or stop flow, control or restrict flow, prevent backflow, or relieve and control pressure in liquid or gas handling applications.

What are the different types of valves?

Different types of valves are available. Each of these types has a number of models, each with different features and functional capabilities.

The three common valve functions include stopping and starting flow, throttling (control) flow, and acting as a non-return check for flow (check). Industrial valves can vary greatly in size and design but there are several basic components to valve functionality.
