How It Works
A gate valve is the most common type of valve used in any process plant. It is a linear motion valve used to start or stop fluid flow. When the gate valve is fully open, the disk of a gate valve is completely removed from the flow. Therefore, virtually no resistance to flow. Due to this very little pressure drops when fluid passes through a gate valve. In service, these valves are either in a fully open or fully closed position.
