Carbon Steel Globe valve
A carbon steel globe valve is a type of valve that is used to control the flow of fluids in pipelines. It is composed of a carbon steel body and a globe-shaped disc that moves up and down to open or close the valve. Carbon steel is a strong and durable material that is resistant to corrosion and is commonly used in industrial applications. Globe valves are typically used in applications where precise flow control is required and are often found in power plants, chemical plants, and other industrial settings.
A carbon steel globe valve works by using a globe-shaped disk that is connected to a stem. The stem is connected to an actuator, which is used to open and close the valve. When the actuator is turned, the stem moves the disk up and down inside the valve body.
The body of the carbon steel globe valve contains a seating surface that the globe-shaped disk sits on when the valve is closed. The seating surface is typically made of a harder material than the disk. In the closed position, the disk meets the seating surface and creates a tight seal, which prevents the flow of fluid. In the open position, the disk is lifted away from the seating surface, allowing the fluid to flow through the valve.
