Gate Valve

A gate valve is widely used in many industries. Gate valves are used in both above ground and underground installations. They are designed for fully open or fully closed service. Being essential for both opening and closing, the gate and seats must be completely planar. Gate valves are often used in the petroleum industry due to their ability to cut through liquids. On a top open and close  gate valve, a hand wheel is used to turn a screw to lift or lower the gate. The gate is a sliding disk that moves vertically, perpendicular to the path of the fluid flow.


What is a Gate Valve Composed of?

Gate valves may have flanged ends which are drilled to meet dimensional standards. They are typically composed of cast iron, ductile iron, cast carbon steel, stainless steel, alloy steels. These metals are very hard and difficult to grind, and must be ground with superabrasive wheels. Eagle Superabrasives specializes in the manufacturing or diamond and cbn wheels that can cut through gate valves with ease.
