Gate Valves – All You Need to Know

An industrial gate valve is a type of valve that either lets media pass freely through an unobstructed pipe or fully shuts off the fluid flow, which is advantageous for enabling minimal pressure loss. A manual gate valve is often the more economical choice than either a pneumatic or an electric automated actuator, given gate valves’ infrequent operation.

Rotating more slowly than the quarter-turn variety, you should use gate valves in fully open or closed positions rather than to manage flow rates. In comparison to butterfly valves, a gate valve’s open bore allows for pipeline inspection gauge, or pig, passage for effective cleaning processes.

Selecting the Best Type of Gate Valve for Your Application

Selecting the proper gate valve material is critical in ensuring reliable performance for the intended application. When determining which gate valve material is right for your needs, it’s important to consider factors such as temperature requirements, media type, and operating pressure. At RED-WHITE VALVE CORP., we offer the following types of gate valves:

 

Brass Gate Valves

Brass gate valves offer excellent performance in extreme temperatures and higher pressures. They are commonly used in plumbing applications, as well as manufacturing industries involving potable and non potable water. Properties of our brass gate valves include:

  • Excellent corrosion resistance
  • Sizes ranging from 1/4‘’ to 4’’
  • Screw in or inserted bonnet
  • Solid wedge disc
  • Non-rising stem
  • Compliant with AB1953 and NSF/ANSI 61 & 372
  • Available with cross handle
  • Certified lead-free
  • Designed for a range of temperatures and pressures

Bronze Gate Valves

Strong and corrosion-resistant, bronze gate valves are commonly used in HVAC, marine, and low-pressure manufacturing industries. Because bronze gate valves have a higher lead content than brass, they are not recommended for drinking water applications. Features of our bronze gate valves include:

  • Sizes ranging from 3/8‘’ to 3’’
  • Inserted or union bonnet
  • Solid disc
  • Non-rising and rising stem options
  • Good corrosion resistance
  • Typically less expensive than brass gate valves
  • Works well with gas, steam, and air 

Cast Iron Gate Valves

Cast iron gate valves are typically used in low-temperature and low-pressure environments. They are a very cost-effective, yet sturdy gate valve option, making them a popular choice for water, wastewater, and HVAC applications. Properties of our cast iron gate valves include:

  • Non-rising and rising stem options
  • Solid disc
  • Sizes ranging from 2’’ to 12’’
  • Operating temperature ranges from 14 °F to 390 °F
  • Outside screw & yoke (OS&Y) style available
  • Class 125 working pressure
