Gate Valve Sub Categories
A Gate Valve is the most common valve for water supply systems. It represents a linear-motion isolation valve and has a function to stop or allow the flow. Gate Valves got their name from the closure element sliding into the flow stream to provide shutoff and, therefore, acting like a gate.
Gate Valves are used to isolate specific areas of the water supply network during maintenance, repair works, new installations, as well as to reroute water flow throughout the pipeline.
