VALVE SELECTION GUIDE


GATE
Recommended for:
Full Open/Closed Service
Minimal Line Pressure Drop
Infrequent Operation

GLOBE
Recommended for:
Throttling of flow
Frequent Operation
Service with some line resistance to flow
Angle Valves offer less resistance to flow
than valve and elbow.

CHECK
Recommended for:
Control of direction of flow and quick
automatic reaction to flow change.
Use in conjunction with gate valve.
They should not be used in air compressor
service or on a reciprocating pump as these
services will cause chattering and valve
vibration damage.

BALL
Recommended for:
On and Off service or throttling of flow
When positive shut-off is necessary
When low valve profile is necessary
Quarter turn operation - 90 rotation from fully open/fully
closed
Easily adapts to automation
Handle position is a quick indication of whether valve
is open or closed.
Full port ball valve design offers no resistance to flow.

BUTTERFLY
Recommended for:
Positive shut-off is necessary
Fully open or fully closed applications
(may be used for throttling applications)
Quarter turn operation - 90 rotation from fully
open/fully closed
Easily adapts to automation
Light weight design offers easy installation
Replaces costly Iron body gate valves
