Gate Valves for Power Industry
Gate valves are designed for actuation or de-actuation of flow (of water or steam) in pipelines of combined heat and power stations with high and ultra-high pressures and temperatures. Depending on the grades of steel employed (carbon, alloy, heat-resistant steel) gate valves can work at temperatures up to +545°С and withstand pressure up to 80 kgf/cm2. They are connected to the pipeline by means of a weld end. Gate valves for the power industry are actuated manually (by means of a handwheel or reduction gear) or electrically.
