GENERAL INFORMATION
Valves can range in size from a fraction of an inch to 30 feet in diameter.
There are many types of valves, but Lockwood sells mostly gate, globe and
check valves. They are different in how they manipulate the flow of the product. Valves are produced by two processes-forged (machine pressed or
stamped) and cast (made by pouring hot liquid into a mold). Forged valves
are generally stronger and smaller (2.0 and smaller).
HF - HARD FACE - used to prevent galling of the moving parts - seat against
disc/wedge.
Options include:
FHF - Full Hard Face, disc & seat
HFS - Hard Face seat only
Full Stellite - disc & seat Hard Faced
Half Stellite - only one surface Hard Faced
