FAQs on Industrial Valves
What are the different types of valves used in HVAC?
Ball valves, butterfly valves, and plug valves (seat valves) are the most common types of valves used in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. Other common types of valves used in HVAC systems include knife gate valves, diaphragm valves, and gate valves. Hydronics-triple duty valves act as a check valve, shut-off valve, and balancing valve all at the same time. Automatic flow limiting valves are used to vary the speed of pumping systems that control the flow of the water in the domestic hot water pipe.
What are the common causes of Valve leakage?
Industrial valve leakage can be caused by a number of factors,but the most common issues are due to their age combined with a lack of maintenance. Other causes of valve leakage include failure to open/close valves when shutting down production, using incorrect metal alloys in valve manufacturing, and design flaws that cause cracks & corrosion over time due to constant heat exposure.
