Gate valves, also known as sluice valves, feature sliding plates - either wedge shaped or parallel - which may be used to permit or prevent the flow of water or other fluids. They are particularly popular in the petroleum industry. Sharp, wedge-shaped knife gate valves are used for handling viscous substances. Gate valves are rarely used for fine control because there is a non-linear relationship between the plate position and the rate of flow, and because the plate tends to vibrate when partially opened, reducing the lifespan of the valve. Instead, gate valves are typically used either fully open or fully closed. Browse the following companies to find suppliers of gate valves for all industries and applications.
