Grade 316 Stainless Steel BSP Gate Valves
Our Grade 316 Stainless Steel Gate Valves are long-lasting, hard-wearing, resilient and provide leak proof isolation. BSP valves are often referred to as WOG valves (water oil gas)
Gate valves are used in plants in the oil and gas industry as well. However, they’re designed only to start and stop flow within a piping system. They, unfortunately, won’t regulate flow.
Gate valves are also designed differently than globe valves. Instead of a disc, these valves have gate faces that are parallel or wedge shaped, and they’re designed with a rising or a non-rising stem. This helps workers understand when the valve is fully open or fully closed.
These valves are also known to have lower pressure drops and offer little resistance to fluid flow, especially in the fully open position. Most importantly, gate valves can be set in any directional flow. Globe valves, on the other hand, can’t.
