What is Valve? Types Of Valves.

What is Valve? Types Of Valves.


Proper technical knowledge in the workplace can enhance work skills. This knowledge can make it easy to operate in chemical, Ammonia Processes, Basic Processes, Chemical Engineering, Chemical Process Technology, Chemical Industries, Lubricant Manufacturing, Manufacturing Industries, Oil and Gas, Petrochemicals, Power Generation, and any other industries with largely. Therefore, a thorough idea of any kind of Valve will surely push anyone further.

A valve is a mechanical device. It has a moveable mechanism that can open-close the passages in the body. A valve Fluid’s flow open-close even completely controls the pipelines, Vessel, Equipment, and Machine.

# Main function of the valves?

= Completely Open and closed the flow, 

= Control the value of the flow  rate,

= To allow the flow to go in one direction.

# Classification of Valves:-

01. Depending on the value of the control, the valve can be divided into two larger groups.

  1. Manual Valve.
  2. Control Valve.

(A). Manual Valve:-

The manual valve can be divided into four sections, according to the movement of the valve seat.

  1. Closing Down Valve:- Globe Valve, Piston Valve, etc.
  2. Slide Valve:- Gale Valve.
  3. Rotary Valve:- Ball Valve, Plug Valve, etc.
  4. Flex-Body Valve:- Diaphragm Valve, Pinch Valve, etc.

(B). Control Valve:-

  1. Check Valve:- Lift Check Valve.
  2. Pressure Relief Valve:- Safety Valve, Safety Relief Valve, etc.

# Different Types of valves uses in different sectors.
