Needle Valves must be easy to shut off, and pressure sensitive to maintain the correct level of flow. The Valves must allow for precise adjustments of flow, and be adjustable to conform to the requirements of a particular system - Needle Valves require many turns of the valve stem to open or close, which means a range of flow, can be allowed for. They are used control flow into delicate gauges, where sudden surges of pressurized fluid can cause damaged, and in situations where flow must be gradually, and precisely brought to a halt. They are also used where a small rate of flow is required. They are not for use in simple shut off applications. The valves should be easy to shut off completely with no more than 'finger tight' pressure. Swagelok Valves guarantee a long service life, and compact design.
This is a valve that plays a major role in many areas of industry, including instrumentation and flow control processes. The operational environments will, on occasions, be offshore in extreme, adverse conditions such as oil and gas exploration and extraction processes. The quality and reliability of a manual pinch valve is something that can make a significant difference to an application of this nature.
Sealability and strength property are the most basic and most important characters for all valves. The sealing of a valve can be separated into internal seal and external seal. The front one means the sealing between valve clack and seat. The latter one means the sealing between the moving part of the valve stem and bonnet, body and bonnet, body and connection part. When the valve is used, it should be not only good in sealability but also be safe.
A valve such as this operates the same as a ball valve. This valve contains a flat round plate that is placed in the middle of the pipe, as well as the plate has a bar inside that is joined to a switch in the outer valve portion. This type of valve functions by revolving the handle as well as the plate in similar position or vertical to the movement. Unlike the ball valve type, the butterfly valve is constantly present in the movement; thus there is always a moderate drop in the pressure in the movement regardless of the valve's position.
Among the many types of Valves manufactured by Swagelok, are Ball Valves - these are used where flow needs to be completely shut-off. They have advantages over many other types of Valves in that they are easy to use, easy to maintain, and can regulate high-pressure, high-volume and high flow of temperature. They are uncomplicated, sturdy, and inexpensive; they lend themselves to a long service life. Swagelok has a full catalogue of various types of Ball Valves. For all the advantages of Ball Valves, they are not suitable for use where fine control of a Valve is needed. Depending on system requirements, in these circumstances, a Needle Valve may be appropriate - these allow for a range of flow, and can control flow into delicate gauges where sudden surges of pressurized fluid can cause damage. They can also be used where flow must be precisely and gradually brought to a halt. Needle Valves are not suitable for simple shut-off applications as are Ball Valves - they should be used where a small rate of flow is required.
The second type is a product with override control to stop flow regardless of flow direction or pressure. It can not only close in response to backflow or insufficient forward pressure, but also can be deliberately shut by an external mechanism, thereby preventing any flow regardless of forward pressure.
