Basic knowledge of valve

A valve is a device used to control the direction, pressure and flow of fluid in a fluid system. A valve is a device that allows the medium (liquid, gas, powder) in the piping and equipment to flow or stop and can control its flow.

The valve is a control component in the pipeline fluid conveying system. It is used to change the passage section and the flow direction of the medium. It has the functions of diversion, cutoff, throttling, check, diversion or overflow pressure relief. Valves used for fluid control, from the simplest shut-off valves to the various valves used in extremely complex automatic control systems, have a wide range of varieties and specifications. The nominal diameter of the valve ranges from extremely small instrument valves to large diameters of 10m. Valves for industrial pipelines. The valve can be used to control the flow of various types of fluids such as water, steam, oil, gas, mud, various corrosive media, liquid metals, and radioactive fluids. The working pressure of the valve can be from 0.0013MPa to 1000MPa ultra-high pressure and working temperature From the ultra-low temperature of -270℃ to the high temperature of 1430℃. The valve can be controlled by a variety of transmission methods, such as manual, electric, hydraulic, pneumatic, turbine, electromagnetic, electromagnetic hydraulic,

Electro-hydraulic, pneumatic-hydraulic, spur gear, bevel gear drive, etc.; it can act according to predetermined requirements under the action of pressure, temperature or other forms of sensing signals, or simply open or close without relying on sensing signals , The valve relies on the drive or automatic mechanism to make the opening and closing parts move up, down, sliding, swinging or rotating, thereby changing the size of the flow channel area to achieve its control function.
