Gate, Globe & Check Valves

Looking for a reliable valve with excellent fluid control ability?

Gate valve is exceptionally sturdy, rugged and durable, with a reputation for quality, integrity and long service.

Gate valves are perfect for use in pipelines. Its easy-to-shut-off-and-on feature is what makes it the preferred choice of engineers.

Gate valves are bidirectional, which makes it versatile and cost-effective. When in use, the pressure loss through the valve is drastically reduced, thereby making it extremely safe and reliable.

Why use Gate Valves?

  • Easy to shut off
  • Bi-directional
  • Minimum pressure loss
  • Suitable for vacuum service
  • Ball type disc

How does it work?

The gate valve has a circular or a rectangular plates, a pipe that controls the flow of the fluid and a handle.
When the valve is closed, the fluid and the steam are tightly captured between the two plates. At this stage, there is no leakage of flow of fluid or steam.

When the valve opens, the matter inside the pipe flows easily, enabling supply.
To ensure 100% safety and avoid leakage, the valve should never be semi-open or semi-closed. It should always be 100% closed or open.

Where is it used?

Gate valves are pretty easy to operate yet very effective and sturdy. Some of the most common applications of gate valves are for transporting fuel gas, feed-water, steam, lube oil and other similar systems.
Gate valves are also used for air, gaseous or liquid systems. Because of it’s non-erosive property, it works really well and lasts long.

Why buy from Forxar Industries?

Gate valves designed and manufactured by Forxar industries are made using excellent quality raw material.

One of the biggest problems with products like these is that it gets eroded easily. Experts at Forxar have especially kept this in mind.
