Cast Steel Gate Valve
Valvesonly is the prime Cast Steel Gate Valve Manufacturer in USA. Cast steel refers to normal carbon steel and alloy steel. It is a casting form that involves different kinds of steel. It is being used when cast iron cannot provide the level of strength needed. This is created by pouring molten steel into a mold. Cast steel has different properties which may change when heat or other chemicals are incorporated into the process.
Gate Valve is a valve that opens by lifting a hurdle out of a path of a fluid. It is planned with a fully open or closed service. The operation of a gate valve is performed either clockwise to open or clockwise to close. The gate moves up or down on the threaded component of the stem. Gate valves should not be used for the regulation of flow because accurate control is not possible.
The high velocity of the flow in the partially open valve may cause erosion of the disc and seating surfaces and creates vibration and noise. 360° surface contact is needed between the disk and seats when the valve is fully closed to achieve proper sealing.
