So, if you want to be an expert in flanged gate valves, read this guide.

What is a Flanged Gate Valve?

Flanged gate valve

Flanged gate valve

This refers to a linear motion valve with a flat closure element sliding into the flow stream to offer shut-off.

This type of valve uses a rectangular gate inserted into the path of the flowing fluid.

A flanged gate valve requires little space along the pipe axis.

It restricts flow of medium when fully opened hence allowing the valves to offer direct flow with minimum pressure drop.

Flanged gate valves are common in applications with relatively large pipe diameters because they are simpler to construct.

In service, this valve is either fully opened or fully closed.

Moreover, flanged gate valves come in a variety of designs hence broadening choice options for different types of applications.

What is the Function of a Flanged Gate Valve?

This design of this device is to enable it to turn the flow of fluid through pipes on and off.

It is also vital in controlling flow pressure through the valves and pipes.

Generally, a flanged gate valve is used to completely shut off fluid flow when closed or provide full flow when opened.

What are the Components of a Flanged Gate Valve?

Parts of flanged gate valve

Parts of flanged gate valve

Ideally, a flanged gate valve consists of a wide range of components.

All the components play different critical roles in ensuring the efficiency and performance of the device.

The main parts of this device include;

  • Valve body
  • Seat
  • Disc
  • Spindle
  • Wheel

Nevertheless, this mechanical device also consists of the parts equally essential in guaranteeing its effectiveness.

These other parts include the following;

  • Bonnet
  • Stem
  • Gland flange
  • Gland follower
  • Hand-wheel
  • Bonnet gasket

  • Yoke

How does a Flanged Gate Valve Work?

Flanged gate valve is designed for on/off services.

Technically, a flanged gate valve consists of three main parts; body, bonnet, and trim.

Generally, the body is connected to the piping system by a flanged or welded connection.

The bonnet, which contains the moving parts, is joined to the body with bolts to allow easy cleaning and maintenance.

The valve trim consists of the stem, disc, gate, and seat rings.

Ideally, the main operation mechanism is relatively simple.

When you turn the hand-wheel, it rotates the stem.

This translates into vertical movement of the gate via the threads.

Once the gate valve is fully open, the disc is completely removed from the flow.

Thus there is virtually no resistance to the flow. As a result, little pressure drops when fluid passes through the flanged gate valve.

This device is considered multi-turn since it takes more than one 360° turn to open or close the valve fully.

When the gate is lifted from the path of the flow, the valve opens.

It seals the bore when it returns to a close position, leading to a full closure of the valve.

In general, the design of a flanged gate valve is for full-area flow to minimize pressure drop. It also allows passage of a pipe-cleaning pig.

A flanged gate valve is unsuitable for regulation or throttling of flow since accurate control is relatively difficult to attain.

Moreover, high velocity of flow in the partially open valve may lead to erosion of seating surfaces and disc.

What are the Applications of Flanged Gate Valve?

Flanged gate valve units are used in a variety of applications across different industries and residential settings.

This is due to the diversity of construction materials, design combinations, and trim offerings of this mechanical device.

What is the difference between Flanged Gate Valve and Flanged Ball Valve?

These two sets of devices are used in relatively similar settings, but they tend to vary on a wide range of aspects such as the following;

Flanged gate valve

Flanged gate valve

Flanged ball valve cross section

Flanged ball valve cross section

a) Operation

A flanged ball valve uses a rotary ball consisting of a stem and bore.

Turning the handle attached to the stem triggers the ball to rotate hence opening or closing the valve.

A flanged ball valve needs a 90° turn to regulate or shut-off the flow.

Moreover, the flanged ball valve opens whenever the handle is parallel to the pipe and closed when the handle is perpendicular to the pipe.

A flanged gate valve, on the other hand, uses a gate to control flow of medium.

Technically, the gates are a sturdy-disc structure attached to the stem.

So the gate is lifted for the valve to open and returned down to original position to close the valve.

The flanged gate valve comes with a bonnet, which regulates gate position when rotated.

It is a multi-turn valve since you have to rotate it more than 360° to close or open the valve.

b) Cost

A flanged gate valve is comparatively cheaper than a flanged ball valve.

c) Space

A flanged gate valve requires smaller space for installation compared to a flanged ball valve.

Ideally, the former operates by turn; hence it won’t necessarily take up a big space where it is installed.

But the latter uses a handle, which has to make the 90°-turn to control fluid hence requires a relatively large space.

d) Visual Detection

It is somewhat easy to detect whether a flanged ball valve is opened or closed.

On the other hand, this is relatively difficult to detect when using a flanged gate valve since it is a multi-turn valve.

How does Flanged Gate Valve and Sluice Valve Compare?

Ideally, both flanged gate valve and sluice valve perform the same function.

They stop fluid flow and also work by the principle of a tapered disc sling into grooves.

However, the difference is that a flanged gate valve is designed for closed pipelines.

On the other hand, the sluice valve is designed for open systems such as dams.

The essence is to control fluid to a specific overflow level.

The sluice valve is suitable for high-level fluid applications.

When water levels surpass the required level, it can flow over the top of sluice gate.

But in a flanged gate valve, the fluid flow pressure will build up and later find another path out to the valve strength.

How do you Install Flanged Gate Valve?

Proper installation of a flanged gate valve is integral in determining its efficiency and overall performance in different settings.

The actual installation technique may vary slightly depending on various factors such as the project and size of the valve.

Nonetheless, installation instructions from this device remain the same as follows;

  • You can install flanged gate valves in any orientation. However, it would be ideal if installed upright, particularly if for bigger sizes.

This helps in easing access to the hand-wheels

  • Make sure you verify the material of flanged gate valve, seat as well as disc before installation.

It allows you to determine whether there are any defects possibly caused by storage or transportation.

  • Complete all the welding works before installing the valve. While at it, make sure the flange cools to ambient temperature before installing the gate valve using the appropriate gasket.
  • When installing, ensure there is no welding residue, pickle paste, rust, or any debris that could be in the pipe before installation.

If need be, you can wash with water and detergent.

  • Ensure there is no warpage of the flange. Also, there should never be any misalignment of gate valve concerning the flange.

Often, these cause valve problems, especially if it is not aligned correctly with the flange or pipe.

Where necessary, make sure you support the valve to reduce the load on the piping assembly.

  • Install all the spacing bolts but be careful not to damage the valve seat. Adjust the face to face of the flanges to get enough space when the piping is spread open.

Enough space allows slipping of the valve in or out for service.

  • Once you’ve centered the pipes, insert the bolts to enable bottom of the valve to rest upon them.

This prevents the flanged gate valve from falling through.

  • Now tighten the bolts one at a time in stages to ensure even pressure is applied and seal formed between flanges, gasket, and valve.
  • After completing the installation process, operate the valve severally to ensure it never moved during setting up.

How do you Select the Ideal Flanged Gate Valve Material?

Ideally, a flanged gate valve is used in different types of applications.

Thus it is likely to come into contact with a range of media.

When picking a flanged gate valve, the material used for its manufacturing is a critical aspect to look into.

It plays an integral role in preventing premature pipe system delays or valve failure.

This type of valve is available in an assortment of materials.

To select the right flanged gate valve material, you must consider several vital criteria such as the following;

  • Operating pressure
  • Material’s compatibility with injected media
  • Effectiveness of coating on materials
  • Service temperatures
  • Composition of the media in contact with exposed parts of the valve
  • Duration the valve is exposed to the media

Which Types of Stems are used in Flanged Gate Valves?

Flanged gate valves ordinarily use two types of a stem; which include the following;

Stem for flanged gate valve

Stem for flanged gate valve

i. Rising Stem Flanged Gate Valve

These types of stems are fixed to the gate.

They rise and lower together as the valve is operated, thus providing a visual indication of the valve position.

This makes it possible to grease the stem.

A nut rotates around the threaded stem, which in turn moves it.

Rising stem flanged valve has an inside screwed stem, and the packing is subject to wear.

This often is a result of up and down movement and turning motion of the stem.

This design of stem is ideal for above-ground installation.

ii. Non-rising Stem Flanged Gate Valve

This design is threaded into the gate and rotate with wedge rising and lowering in the device.

The rotation of the wheel triggers the operation of the valve.

However, the stem hardly comes out of the housing.

Non-rising stem flanged gate valves take up less vertical space since the stem remains within the valve body.

These types of valves are always fitted with a local visual pointer indicating the valve’s position.

Moreover, these designs are usually ideal for both underground and above-ground installations.

Is there a Specific Direction for Installing Flanged Gate Valve?

Not necessarily.

You can install flanged gate valves in any direction.

But the efficiency of the device may vary depending on the specific orientation it is installed in.

Ideally, the recommended orientation for installing this type of valve is having the stem in a vertical position.

This orientation is preferred since it aligns the stem to the disc and the disc to the body guides.

And this helps keep everything in proper orientation throughout the open and closed cycles.

Such orientation, in addition to laws of gravity, guarantees effectiveness of this mechanical device.

How do you Choose the Right Flanged Gate Valve?

There are core elements you must look into when selecting a suitable flanged gate valve material.

These factors are essential in making it possible for you to make the right selection decision, and they include the following;

Flanged gate valve

Flanged gate valve

a) Rubber Quality

It is a vital aspect in determining the durability and overall functionality of the valve.

Essentially, the rubber must withstand continuous impact from impurities and chemicals without getting damaged.

Moreover, it should also absorb tiny impurities in the seat to close tight.

b) Tight Construction

Flanged gate valves feature two fundamental design issues surrounding construction, including stem sealing and body/bonnet sealing.

In stem sealing, the sealing is placed in the stem’s bonnet, which retains pressure inside the valve.

Ordinarily, stem-sealing should be maintenance-free and needs to last the service life of the valve.

In bonnet/body sealing, the tightness between the body and bonnet is attained by using a gasket embedded in a recess in the valve.

This design ensures the gasket stays correctly positioned and not blown due to pressure surges.

c) External Corrosion Protection

External protection is from resistance is critical of a flanged gate valve’s service life.

If the device is coated, the coating material and technique should be uniform and comply with DIN 3476 part 1 standards.

d) General Performance

It is always imperative to pay attention to the operating and closing torque.

This is irrespective of whether you are operating the flanged gate valve by hand-wheel or using an electric actuator.

The ideal torque for operating the valve from an open to a closed position should range from 5-30 Nm, depending on valve size.

Notably, torques of less than 5 Nm are unsuitable in most cases since they encourage pressure surges in the pipeline.

Closing torques are those required to close the valve to a drop tight position.

Additionally, the inside valve diameters should correspond to the nominal size of the valve.

This is essential since it allows use of pipe cleaning devices.

What are the Common Materials for Manufacturing Flanged Gate Valves?

Flanged gate valve materials are manufactured from a wide range of materials.

However, suitable materials must meet the minimum standards for valves in specific environments.

The common materials include the following;

You can easily repair it, but it depends on the specific part or component with the issue.

When repairing, you need first to disassemble the unit into pieces to identify the specific part to repair.

This has to start by turning off the water source and removing it from the pipeline system.

Unscrew the ends using correct tools and pliers to remove the gate valve’s bonnet.

At this point, you can figure out the specific component that needs repair or replacement and act accordingly.

If the damaged part is among the main components of the valve, then you’ll rather replace the entire unit.

Otherwise, repair or replace the specific part accordingly and re-assemble the unit appropriately.

Can you use a Flanged Gate Valve to Reduce Pressure?

Not really.

Technically, the purpose of a flanged gate valve is to provide ideal on/off shutoff features.

And in many applications using this valve, incidents of pressure drop are usually unlikely.

However, this device does not necessarily reduce pressure.

What it does about reducing pressure is to limit the fluid pressured depending on the flow.

If your flow is zero, then then the flanged gate valve will never work to reduce pressure.

But for higher flows, you may need to keep o adjusting the valve depending on the flow changes, thus making it a hectic undertaking.

How much does a Flanged Gate Valve Cost?
