In any fluid handling system, valves are the controlling element: starting or stopping flow, regulating or throttling flow, preventing back flow, or relieving and regulating pressure. Since Crane valves are used in a variety of applications, the following descriptions may provide a basic guideline in the selection of steel valves.

Gate valves serve as efficient stop valves with flow in either direction. They are commonly used where a minimum pressure drop is important. Throttling is not recommended because partially open gate valves exhibit flow characteristics not conducive to accurate and consistent flow control. Also, the valves may be damaged by the high velocity across the seats. They function best fully open or fully closed. Gear Actuators recommended for Gate valves:

• Class 150: sizes above 10″

• Class 300: sizes above 8″

• Class 600: sizes above 6″
