Gate Valve

A type of valve in which the closing element (the gate) is a disc that moves across the stream in a groove or slot for support against pressure.

A gate valve has relatively large full ports and a straight line flow pattern.

A gate valve creates very little pressure drop; this valve is, however, subject to leakage if the sealing surfaces are scored or marred or if debris becomes lodged in the groove.
