Grade 316 Stainless Steel BSP Globe Valves
Grade 316 Stainless Steel Globe Valves are ideal for general purpose applications. Our Stainless Steel Industrial BSP Valves are long-lasting, hard-wearing, resilient and provide leak proof isolation. BSP valves are often referred to as WOG valves (water oil gas).
Globe valves are generally used to stop, start, and regulate flow within a pipe. They’re made with a spherical body and a disc. The disc within the globe valve is designed to move up and down from the seat. These vertical movements allow the space between the disc and the seat to change slowly when the valve starts to close. This gives the valve good throttling ability and allows it to regulate flow within a pipeline.
The flow rate of a Globe valve depends on the space between the disc and the seat. The further apart they are, the more liquid that will flow through the valve.
Globe valves are also designed with a stem connected to the bonnet right above the disc to maintain a tight seal when the valve is fully closed. Because of that, globe valves are less likely to experience seat leakage compared to other valves.
These valves can double as control valves and are commonly used for corrosive, highly viscous media as well as high-pressure and high-temperature systems.
