A gate valve is one of the commonly used valves to open and close the flow of liquid from straight line medium. This can be found in a number of places. An instance would be in irrigation as well as used in different chemical plants to regulate the path of various types of fluids.
Brass instruments, in their simplest form are simply tubes. At one end, a musician buzzes their lips to create sound, which leaves the instrument at the opposite end. Any tube (even ones for gardening as demonstrated on YouTube) can produce wide intervals. These intervals are dictated by the harmonic series, brass players generally call this the partial series. In order to sound the notes in-between the partial series, the performer must have a way to change the length of the tubing in the instrument. Some instruments, such as the trombone have a moveable slide, while others including euphoniums, baritones, trumpets, and french horns have valves to change the amount of tubing the air flows through.

More recently, on the PEX plumbing and radiant heating networks as brass fittings water shutoff dominated by two products: "valve cork entrance omental tapered Threaded Brass Ball Valve BVT012D" and "Sweat Brass Ball Valve BVS012D". Passport service life of tube-omental valve - 8 years, the average life-at least 1500 cycles, time to failure - at least 400 cycles. In fact, these valves after 40-50 cycles begin to be capricious: cotton gland packing into a brown porridge, soaked in water, and the cone stop tube, originally friction to the body under the influence of abrasive solids and sludge sediment in the water begins to hang out in the body, passing water in the closed position. If you also take into account the extremely high coefficient of local resistance plug valves (3,5-5,7), it is not surprising that plumbers often just throw the locking cap, leaving the body dubious backdrop of the pipeline.
As sleeved valves, then the passport MTBF of 1,300 cycles, their actual performance is enough for 20-40 cycles, after which the sediment accumulated on the sealing saddle, do not allow completely block the flow by turning the valve itself in another "architectural extravagances." Moreover, the coefficient of local resistance they simply record - from 16 to 20. That is, at a flow rate of 1 m / sec, passing through the valve, the pressure of the liquid is reduced by 1 m of water.
There is a slight flaw with valves though. The valve combination of 2-3 will be slightly sharp, the 1-3 combination will always be quite sharp, and the 1-2-3 combination will always be very, very sharp. Lets explore why this phenomenon happens.
