What Is a Gate Valve?
A gate valve gets its name from the internal mechanism that enables the flow of water. This mechanism looks like a tiny gate that moves up and down on a stem, which is connected to the handle. The handle is a screw handle that moves the gate up and down, opening and closing the valve as needed. They are best used in on/off applications where the valve is used infrequently. They are sometimes found in home plumbing systems, though ball valves are becoming more popular in this area. They are also commonly found in the oil and gas industry, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, automotive, and marine applications. They can be used in high pressure and high-temperature environments, so are often found in manufacturing.
