Automatic & Automated Valves
Many valve varieties come in automated and automatic configurations to control the flow of liquids and slurries at a predetermined flow rate.
There are an array of different type of ball valves available from the manufacturers below.
Similar to ball valves, butterfly valves are quarter-turn valves that allow for quick fluid flow.
Check valves are used for automatically limiting fluid flow in a piping system to a single direction
Used to process, store and transport cryogenic fluids and gasses including nitrogen, argon and liquid natural gas.
Double Bleed & Block Valves
Double block and bleed valves are used for isolation and depressurization of section of line or pipe.
Float valves, also known as balltaps or ballcocks, are used for filling water tanks while avoiding overflow and backflow.
Freeze Protection Valves
Freeze protection valves are precision thermally self-actuated valves for use in application such as solar systems and automobiles.
Gas valves are utilized for regulating, stopping, or starting gas flows in a variety of heating applications.
Also referred to as a sluice valve, a gate valve lifts a round or rectangular gate out of the path.
Globe valves consist of a movable disk-type element and a stationary ring seat in a generally spherical body.
Hand Operated Valves
Hand operated valves are engaged through a manual mechanism such as a lever, wheel or handle as opposed to actuation or motor control.
Hydraulic valves including proportional control valves, direction valves, cartridge valves and more.
Miniature valves are any style or type of valve manufactured for small scale application.
A needle valves have a relatively small orifice and a long, tapered seat, and a needle-shaped plunger on the end of a screw and are exact fits on the seat.
Valves manufactured for nuclear power plant environments, prototype reactors, shipboard propulsion systems, and electric generating plants.
Petroleum and fuel-handling valves as well as valves used at chemical and petrochemical plants in reactor emergency shut off, compressor kick-back and suction check functions.
Pilot valves are high pressure control valves commonly used in critical applications and can be set as push to activate or as a dead man's style switch.
Pinch valves are comprised of a fully ported or full bored design using a pinching effect to obstruct media flow in cement, chemical and waste water applications.
Plug valves are comprised of conically-tapered or cylindrical plugs rotated inside the valve body control media flow though the valve.
Pneumatic valves are used in a variety of applications including high speed combustion engines including high performance race engines.
Poppet valves (mushroom valves) generally operate on differential pressure for applications including tire valves as well as internal combustion and steam engines.
Variations of a valve, pressure regulators or pressure reducing valves decrease pressure.
Push Button Valves
Push button valves are valves that have a usually hand operated button apparatus used to either relieve pressure or change flow.
Also known as an airlock valve, rotary valves are used in material handling applications.
Selector valves are designed to allow a single input to be designated to one of multiple outputs.
Often valves are classified according to how they are actuated, which is the case for solenoid valve
Shut-off valves are used to close a line and stop flow of materials. Shut-off valves can be manual or automated to operated at a preset condition.
Thermostatic valves are used for automatic temperature control in liquid cooling systems.
Vacuum valves are used for a variety of applications and come in ball valve, slide valve, vented ball valve, and many other valve type configurations.
Two way valve that can be opened or close to block fluid passage. Types of wafer valves include disc, check and butterfly valves.
