Globe Valves

Ductile Iron Globe Valve

Globe Valve Details

Globe Valves are used for throttling or regulating flow control and shut-Off is accomplished by moving the disc against the flow stream rather than across it (as is the case with a Gate Valve). Because the flow pattern through a globe valve involves changes in direction, it results in greater resistance to flow, which in turn results in a high-pressure drop.

The Globe Valve is cast with quality materials (ductile iron, graphite, 13 Chrome) for long-term use. The Face-to-Face dimensions are set in accordance to ASME B16.10, and the Flange Drilling Dimensions are in accordance with ASME B16.5.

The Globe Valve is perfect for services that involve water, oil, and pump systems. It is also excellent to use in the high-pressure operation of steam, air, gas, and vapours.

The typical applications of Globe valves include:

  • Fuel oil and Cooling water systems where flow needs to be regulated
  • Feedwater, Chemical feed, and Turbine lube oil systems
  • High-point vents and low-point drains when leak tightness and safety are major consideration
  • Condenser air extraction and extraction drain systems
  • Boiler and main steam vents and drains
  • Heater and Turbine seals and drains

Application

Globe Valves are used for throttling or regulating flow control and shut-Off is accomplished by moving the disc against the flow stream rather than across it (as is the case with a Gate Valve).

The Globe Valve is perfect for services that involve water, oil, and pump systems. It is also excellent to use in the high-pressure operation of steam, air, gas, and vapours.

The typical applications of Globe valves include:

  • Fuel oil and Cooling water systems where flow needs to be regulated
  • Feedwater, Chemical feed, and Turbine lube oil systems
  • High-point vents and low-point drains when leak tightness and safety are major consideration
  • Condenser air extraction and extraction drain systems
  • Boiler and main steam vents and drains
  • Heater and Turbine seals and drains

Advantages:

  • Excellent throttling ability enables precise flow control of fluids or gases, ideal for accurate regulation rates
  • Reliable sealing due to the disk-shaped socket which can be tightly closed to prevent leaks; easily replaced enabling efficient maintenance
  • Durable, high-quality materials in the form of a ductile iron body, chrome stem and seat seal ring
  • Versatile – designed and manufactured to withstand high pressure and high temperature applications (oil, gas, chemical, primary energy generation)
  • Easy positioning makes them simple to install and adaptable to various pipeline configurations

Disadvantages:

  • Energy loss due to the resulting high-pressure drop; consider a Gate Valve if energy loss is a concern
  • Overall more expensive due to the volume of materials used and complex design; consider a Butterfly Valve if cost-effective flow control is a requirement
  • Spares can be costly and difficult to find as the design is very specific; consider opening an account with the right supplier
  • A moderate flow rate prevents fine control in the release of the media. This is due to the linear control of the handwheel not being directly proportionate to the position of the disc; consider a Butterfly Valve if fine-tuning is important
  • Exposure to corrosive elements and abrasive particles will reduce the lifespan of the Globe Valve; consider a Gate Valve if this is a factor

Common Industry Uses:

  • Oil and Gas requiring flow control and pressure regulation applications, such as pipelines, refineries, and petrochemical plants
  • Chemical Processing Plants for precise flow control for chemicals and corrosive substances
  • Water Treatment Facilities for the control and regulation of the flow of water in distribution systems
  • Primary Energy in the generation of electricity, used to control the flow of steam and water in the boilers
  • HVAC for regulating the flow of water and other fluids in heating and cooling systems
