What is a Manual Globe Valve?

ZECO manual globe valve uses through way type structure. In order to make sure about the sealing at the stem packing, use flexible graphite packing. At the same time consider that under the working conditions, cavity fluid erosion and replacement packing convenience. There was a back seal structure in the bonnet, this up sealing face and the sealing face of the stem contact with each other, to make sure that the stem is sealing when the valve gate is open. Because ZECO manual globe valve will have flow direction requirements according to the pressure, the globe valve needs to be installed according to the flow direction requirements. The installation is the key to deciding the valve life. Improper installation of the globe valve can make the possibility of significant performance degradation, so, should confirm such points as follows before installing valves. Check the sign which shows the flow direction of globe valves, and install valves according to the flow direction.

How does a Globe Valve work?

Water faucets are the best example to show how globe valves work. Turning on the faucet means raising or lowering the stem, depending on the design. Water then comes out of the faucet. When turned to the other direction, say, turned off, the raised gate is lowered or the lowered gate is raised.

The number of turns affects the volume of water that goes out of the faucet. Similarly, by controlling the wheel of the valve, a certain volume of gas or liquid passes through the valve. A fully turned-on globe valve means the flow rate is at its maximum. On the other hand, a fully turned-off globe valve means sealing the valve.
