The use of gate valves cut across several industries and is suitable for installation which is below the surface of the ground. But whenever you want to choose, you need to choose the appropriate type so as to maximize the use. The gate valves are designed so that it can be opened and closed fully. Their installation is in pipelines for the isolation rather than regulating or controlling valves. When the valves are in use, it moves up and down in a definite path.
This kind of valve is used for reducing the loss of pressure and one of the requirements is a free bore. When it is fully opened, the passage will be free so as to ensure the smooth movement of the fluid; this will also make it easy to clean whenever the need arises. Whenever the valve is turned from closed to open, the passage will open gradually thereby giving way for the fluid passage.
