Carbon Steel Bellow Seal Globe Valve

A carbon steel bellow seal globe valve is a type of valve that uses bellows to seal the valve stem, as opposed to traditional packing or O-rings. The globe design of the valve allows for precise flow control, and the use of carbon steel makes the valve durable and resistant to corrosion. This type of valve is often used in industrial settings such as oil and gas production, power generation, and chemical processing.

The working of a Carbon steel bellow seal globe valve is based on the movement of a disc-shaped element called a “plug” or “valve disc” inside the valve body. The valve disc is connected to a stem, which is in turn connected to a handwheel or another actuator. The valve disc can be moved up and down within the valve body to control the flow of fluid through the valve.

When the valve is in the closed position, the valve disc is positioned to block the flow of fluid through the valve body. When the valve is opened, the valve disc is moved upward, allowing fluid to flow through the valve. The bellows seal is positioned around the valve stem, and it is designed to prevent any leakage of fluid around the stem. The bellows is a flexible metal tube that is compressed when the valve stem is moved up and down, creating a tight seal around the stem.

Advantages of Carbon steel bellow seal globe valve:

  • The flow needs to be regulated with a high degree of accuracy
