Industrial Valves

An industrial valve is a mechanism designed to close or control the flow in an installation. Depending on the function, the valves can be divided into shut-off valves (close the pipeline tight), control valves, distribution valves, check valves (protect against backflow), safety valves (protect installations against excessive pressure). No matter which industry it serves, the industrial valve is one of the critical elements of each installation.

Industrial Fittings

Industrial fittings include elements used for the construction of industrial installations using pipes and hoses, intended to transfer liquid, gaseous and solid substances (media). This range consists of a diverse range of couplings, quick release couplings, hose fittings, adapters, and connectors, which are used to end or equip rigid pressure lines pipelines or flexible lines hoses. They are used to connect the elements of an installation together.

Ball Valves

A ball valve is a form of quarter-turn valve which uses a hollow, perforated, and pivoting ball to control flow through it. It is open when the ball’s hole is in line with the flow and closed when it is pivoted 90-degrees by the valve handle. The handle lies flat in alignment with the flow when open, and is perpendicular to it when closed, making for easy visual confirmation of the valve’s status. The shut position 1/4 turn could be in either CW or CCW direction. Ball valves are durable, performing well after many cycles, and reliable, closing securely even after long periods of disuse.

Butterfly Valves

A Butterfly valve is a quarter-turn rotational motion valve that is used to stop, regulate, and start flow. Butterfly valves are easy and fast to open. A 90° rotation of the handle provides a complete closure or opening of the valve. Large Butterfly valves are usually equipped with a so-called gearbox, where the handwheel by gears is connected to the stem. This simplifies the operation of the valve, but at the expense of speed.

Gate Valves

Gate valves are designed for fully open or fully closed service. They are installed in pipelines as isolating valves, and should not be used as control or regulating valves. Operation of a gate valve is performed either clockwise to close (CTC) or clockwise to open (CTO) rotating motion of the stem. When operating the valve stem, the gate moves up or downwards on the threaded part of the stem.

Check Valves

Check valves are generally installed in pipelines to prevent backflow. A check valve is basically a one-way valve, in which the flow can run freely one way, but if the flow turns the valve will close to protect the piping, other valves, pumps, etc. If the flow turns and no check valve is installed, a water hammer can occur. Water hammer often occurs with an extreme force and will easily damage a pipeline or components.

Knife Gate Valves

Knife gate valves are designed mainly for on-off and isolation services in systems with high content of suspended solids. The knife gate valves are especially beneficial for handling slurry, viscous, corrosive, and abrasive media. The valves have a minimised pressure drop in a fully open position, they are easy to actuate, they have a relatively low weight, and are cost-effective. Knife gate valves are designed to work in some of the harshest environments, typically having a sharpened blade to cut through heavy liquids.

Plug Valves

Plug valve is a Quarter-turn rotary motion Valve that uses a tapered or cylindrical plug to stop or start the flow. The disk is in plug shape, which has a passage to pass the flow. In the open position, this bored passage is in line with the flow. When the plug is turned 90° from the open position, the solid part of the plug blocks the flow. It is used in place of a gate valve where quick operation is required. It can be used in high-pressure temperature services.


An industrial strainer is a special type of strainer manufactured for various industrial applications. Just like other straining devices, industrial strainers are used for coarse filtration of fluid mediums in large pipelines. It comes with a wire mesh of various sizes, usually supported by a perforated sheet. As a general rule, the wire mesh opening must be smaller than the size of the particles to hold them in place while letting the fluid go through the pipeline by filtering unwanted particles and separating them from the fluid, industrial strainers protect other process system components like burners, valves, pumps, bearings, condensers and nozzles in the flow systems. In most cases, industrial strainers are partnered with special filters that are used to isolate finer particles. Together with a filter, industrial strainers make up an efficient and cost-effective filtration system.

Types of Strainers

Pot Type Strainer

POT strainers remove damage causing particulate matter from the process media, protecting system components such as flow meters, pumps, mechanical seals, and spray nozzles. The particulate matter is captured in the strainer basket. The line is then temporarily shut down and the basket removed for cleaning or replacement. These strainers reduce downtime for cleaning due to their construction of bolted cover and easy removal of the screen.

Y Type Strainer

“Y” Type strainer has a low-pressure drop due to the higher flow area through the screen. “Y” Strainers mechanically remove solids from flowing liquids, air, steam, or gases by means of a perforated or wire mesh straining element. The strainer improves the clearance in the medium, and prolongs the life of valves; protects expensive pumps, meters, and other equipment. “Y” strainer has the advantage of being able to be installed in either a horizontal or vertical position.

Control Valves

Control valves automatically regulate pressure and/or flow rate, and are available for any pressure. If different plant systems operate up to, and at pressure/temperature combinations that require Class 300 valves, sometimes (where the design permits), all control valves chosen will be Class 300 for interchangeability. However, if none of the systems exceeds the ratings for Class 150 valves, this is not necessary. Globe valves are normally used for control, and their ends are usually flanged for ease of maintenance. Depending on their type of supply, the disk is moved by a hydraulic, pneumatic, electrical, or mechanical actuator.
