Stainless Steel Gate Valves: Different Types and Uses across Industries.

Stainless steel is an alloy known for its corrosion resistance, containing a minimum of 10.5% chromium, which forms a protective oxide layer on its surface. This resistance makes stainless steel gate valves suitable for various applications, especially in industries prioritizing corrosion resistance, such as chemical processing, oil and gas, food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, water treatment, and marine environments.

The Anatomy Of a Stainless Steel Gate Valve Includes Crucial Components :

1. Body: This houses the valve and connects it to the piping system, made predominantly from stainless steel for longevity and corrosion resistance.
2. Gate: The movable part of the valve that controls fluid flow, often made of stainless steel for strength and corrosion resistance.
3. Stem: Connects the actuator to the gate, transmitting motion for valve opening and closing, commonly made of stainless steel for durability.
4. Seat: Prevents leakage when the valve is closed, featuring resilient or metal-to-metal designs as per application needs.
5. Bonnet: Protects internal components and houses the stem and packing, usually made of stainless steel or compatible materials.
