What is a valve and types ? What are the uses of it ?


Our valves are specifically designed to meet the needs of various industries such as the chemical, oil and gas, and petrochemical industries.

Below are some of the industrial valve we manufacture:

  • Control valve
  • Check Valve
  • Safety Valve
  • Gate Valve
  • Globe Valve
  • Butterfly valve
  • Plug valve


Control Valve: It is a power-operated valve that controls the flow of fluids such as steam, gas, oil, and water. Control Valve is used to control fluid flow by changing sizes of the flow passage.  A controller sends a signal to the control valve, which moves and modifies the flow. It is made up of two components: a valve and an actuator. Depending on the service condition and application, their valve bodies come in a variety of shapes and sizes.

Types of Control Valve are –

  • Three-way control valve
  • Cage type control valve
  • Double seat control valve
  • O type shutoff control valve
  • Single Seat control valve
  • Water Control valve
  • Globe Control valve

Check Valve: . A check valve allows liquid to flow through it and is one direction. These valves have two openings in the body one for fluid to enter and other to leave. Check valves are automatic and does not need external control.  Check valves are primarily used in the industrial and water supply industries. Check valves are available with a variety of attachments on our website.

Types of Check Valve –

  • Swing Check Valve
  • Wafer Check Valve
  • Ball Check Valve
  • Lift Check Valve
  • Dual Plate Check Valve
  • Silent Check Valve
  • Non-slam Swing Check Valve
  • Tilting disc Check Valve
  • Pressure seal Check Valve

Safety valve: A safety valve protects the system from excessive pressure. Overpressure occurs when the pressure exceeds the Maximum Allowable Working Pressure. Safety valves, in contrast to relief valves, can open very quickly because they operate at a predetermined pressure.

Types of Safety Valve –

  • Steam Safety Valve.
  • Thermal Safety Valve.
  • Conventional Safety valve.
  • Pilot operated safety valve
  • Bellow safety valve

Gate Valve: . Gate valve works by opening a barrier out of the fluid path. They require very little space and do not restrict the path of the fluid. When the valve is opened, the disc is completely removed from the flow stream. This valve has a number of advantages over other valves. Gate valves have a wide range of applications. They are used in the chemical, petrochemical, power generation, pulp and paper, and oil and gas refining industries.

Types of Gate Valve

  • Rising Stem Gate Valve
  • Non-Rising Stem Gate Valve
  • Bellow Seal Gate Valve
  • Pressure Seal Gate Valve
  • Cryogenic Gate Valve
  • Forged Gate Valve

Butterfly Valve: In this valve, a disc is connected to a rod. Because of the disc, the medium can pass through the valve. A butterfly valve’s main components are the body, disc, stem, and seal. The large butterfly valve includes a gear box that connects the hand wheel to the stem via gears. It is used in a wide range of industries, including chemical, food processing, and pharmaceutical plants, as well as steam, fire, and water treatment plants.

Types of Butterfly Valve-

  • Lug Butterfly Valve
  • Wafer Butterfly Valve
  • Flanged Butterfly Valve
  • Double eccentric Butterfly Valve
  • Triple eccentric Butterfly Valve
  • Double Offset Butterfly Valve


Plug Valve -A plug valve is characterized by a cone-shaped plug that rotates within the valve body to control the flow of medium through the valve. These valves are used in full flow systems that are either completely open or completely closed. These valves are not typically intended for medium regulation. The main benefit of a plug valve is that it can be repaired or cleaned without having to remove the valve body from the system. Plug Valves are typically top entry valves. They are useful in applications that require frequent and quick operation.
