Reliable Class 150 Gate Valve Manufacturer

As a most popular product line of gate valves, Class 150 gate valves are used to allow or cut off the fluid where the minimum pressure drop is important. The disc can be lifted or pushed down by the stem to achieve this kind of performance.

At Kinvalve, you can make a choice from solid wedge, flexible wedge or split wedge designed Class 150 gate valves. These three types of Class 150 gate valves have each advantage suitable for your applications.

A Class 150 gate valve with solid wedge is the most common gate valve you can find in the market. This type of Class 150 gate valve is practical for turbulent flow because of its a piece strengthen solid wedge.

Solid wedge gate valves can be used in any positions and fit for almost all fluids, even in the applications where the high temperature and high pressure retain. However, you need pay more attention to them when there is thermal expansion or bending loads in your application. The thermal expansion will make the solid wedge get locked between the seats, and the bending loads will lead to deformation as well.

In a flex wedge Class 150 gate valve, the disc is also one-piece design, but there are cuts on it. The shallow narrow cuts provide little flexibility but remain strength. You can benefit much more flexibility from the deeper and wider cuts but you also need to accept the weakness of less strength. The flexible wedge can overcome the limitation of thermal expansion and bending loads.

At Kinvalve, the split disc design in a Class 150 gate valve is also an option for you. Compared to the solid and flex wedge with one-piece disc, the split wedge is two-piece disc. Split wedge is a self-alignment wedge onto the seats design and it is usually installed in the vertical position.

We can produce this 150lb gate valve based on your customized list. For example, you can choose the material of the valve body, the material of the trim, and you can also choose the connection types, such as flanges, welding, etc.

You can choose the valve bonnet connection method and different stem structure designs based on the application conditions. For Class 150 gate valves, the most common design is the bolted bonnet design, with the stem structure generally consisting of a rising stem and a non-rising stem.

Here at Kinvalve, we ensure that our gate valve class 150 is manufactured to meet and exceed your expectations. We also indicate this pressure rating clearly on the gate valve body to assure you of the correct gate valve for your application.

    API600 Class 150 Gate Valve

    API 600 gate valve is a heavy-duty and large stem dimension gate valve with bolted bonnet for the petroleum and natural gas industries. API standard series trims are for you to choose from to meet different media usage requirements.

  • ASME-Class-150-Gate-Valve
    ASME Class 150 Gate Valve

    ASME gate valves are in accordance with ASME B16.34 design standard. This type of Class 150 gate valve is your cost-efficient choice. They are made by casting bodies. ASME Class 150 gate valve is the most common product line in the market.

Main Componets

Body: Pressure-retaining part, housing all the trims, providing Connection to the pipelines, Made of ASTM A105 for high-temperature, ASTM A350 for Low temp, and ASTM A182 for corrosive medium.

Bonnet: Mostly Bolted to the body, customized inside seals fit every condition you meet.

Stem: Controlling the disc to open/close. Generally hard alloys like 13Cr are strong enough to withstand the loads, wear and corrosion. The choice of valve stem material also depends on the material of your valve body and the properties of the medium.

Wedge: The moving part upwards or downwards to allow or block the fluid thru. Solid, Flexible and Split types of wedges for your choice.

Seat: The two-piece seats combinate the wedge to ensure the sealing of the gate valve. Integrated design and insert seat ring for your options.

Backseat: A seat arrangement inside the bonnet, you can think of backseat as the first line of defense against external leaking from the stem.

What are Class 150 Gate Valves?

They are special types of valves designed to withstand liquid pressure of up to 150 PSI (Pounds Per Square Inch). They majorly differ from other types of gate valves in terms of their pressure rating.

How to Choose Class 150 Gate Valve

When choosing Class 150 gate valves, it is important to consider the following:

  • Flanged ends: They are designed with flanged ends that make them easy to install. As such, this is attributed to their low costs of maintenance and installation.
  • Design  (bolted bonnet design): This entails bolting of outermost casing of the valve that serves as protection to other inner components. Consequently, this helps in maintenance since it allows for ease of deconstruction and reconstruction.
  • Size scope/range: They come in a variety of sizes that caters to all consumer’s needs. For instance, some are small whilst others are large depending on their functionality.
  • Rising stem: They normally have a non-rotating rising stem that holds the gate firm in its position and maintains its alignment.
  • Handwheel operated: They are flexible in that they can be operated using hands to control the flow rates.
  • Excellent sealing mechanism: They have excellent sealing abilities in the sense that the seals are made tight thus regulating possible liquid leakages.

Best Material for Class 150 Gate Valve Construction.

  • Carbon steel:  Carbon steel can be a suitable material in the construction of class 150 gate valves. It exists as one of the alloys of steel and has various advantages such as high tensile strength, corrosion resistance, and ability to withstand high pressure.
  •   Brass: Brass is also one of the suitable materials that can be used in constructing class 150 gate valves. It exists as an alloy made from copper and zinc therefore constituting of properties of both copper and zinc. Class 150 gate valves made from brass are majorly applicable in general plumbing applications such as commercial and residential plumbing.
  • Stainless steel: They are also preferred in making class 150 gate valves since they are resistant to chemicals.
  • Bronze: Bronze is also one of the significant materials used in making class 150 gate valves. They have several advantages over materials such as excellent mechanical strength, less costly as opposed to brass-type valves, and corrosion resistance.

Conclusion

In summary, class 150 gate valves are significantly important in general plumbing applications in various ways. Furthermore, they are advantageous to use as opposed to other classes of gate valves in the sense that they offer excellent sealing effects, are less costly, and have mechanical advantages.
