Product Description

Plumbing valves are devices used in plumbing systems to control, regulate, and stop the flow of water or other fluids through pipes and fixtures. They play a crucial role in managing water distribution, isolating specific areas of a plumbing system, and ensuring the safe and efficient operation of plumbing systems. Here are some common types of plumbing valves and their functions:

1. Ball Valves:

   - Function: Ball valves use a spherical ball with a hole in it to control the flow of water. When the handle is turned, the ball can be rotated to allow or stop the flow of water.

   - Applications: Ball valves are versatile and are commonly used for shut-off and control applications in residential and commercial plumbing systems.

2. Gate Valves:

   - Function: Gate valves have a gate-like disk that is lowered or raised to control the flow of water. They provide full flow when fully open and are often used for on/off control rather than flow regulation.

   - Applications: Gate valves are used in applications where a full flow of water is required, such as main water shutoff valves.

3. Globe Valves:

   - Function: Globe valves have a disk that moves perpendicular to the flow path, reducing or increasing the flow of water when the valve is opened or closed.

   - Applications: Globe valves are commonly used for controlling the flow of water in applications where fine control is needed, such as in heating and cooling systems.

4. Check Valves:

   - Function: Check valves allow water to flow in one direction only, preventing backflow. They have a flap or disc that opens when water flows in the correct direction and closes to prevent reverse flow.

   - Applications: Check valves are used in applications where backflow prevention is critical, such as in sump pumps and certain types of water supply lines.

5. Pressure Reducing Valves (PRVs):

   - Function: PRVs are used to reduce and regulate water pressure in plumbing systems. They automatically adjust to maintain a preset pressure level downstream.

   - Applications: PRVs are essential in areas where water pressure is too high and needs to be reduced to prevent damage to fixtures and pipes.

6. Thermostatic Mixing Valves (TMVs):

   - Function: TMVs blend hot and cold water to maintain a consistent and safe water temperature at faucets and showers.

   - Applications: TMVs are commonly used in applications where scalding is a concern, such as in residential bathrooms and commercial facilities.

7. Angle Valves:

   - Function: Angle valves, also known as stop valves, are compact shut-off valves with an angled inlet and outlet. They are often used to control water supply to individual fixtures like sinks and toilets.

   - Applications: Angle valves are used in various plumbing installations where localized control of water flow is required.

8. Butterfly Valves:

   - Function: Butterfly valves have a disk that rotates in a circular motion to control water flow. They are often used for large-diameter pipes and in applications requiring rapid on/off control.

   - Applications: Butterfly valves are commonly used in industrial and municipal water supply systems.

9. Solenoid Valves:

   - Function: Solenoid valves are electronically controlled valves that open or close when an electrical current is applied. They are often used in automated and remote-controlled plumbing systems.

   - Applications: Solenoid valves are used in irrigation systems, automated faucets, and other applications requiring remote operation.

Plumbing valves are crucial components in plumbing systems, ensuring the safe and efficient distribution of water while allowing for control and isolation when needed. The selection of the appropriate valve type depends on the specific application and requirements of the plumbing system.
