Gas Valves

Hydraulic Equipment and Repairs in the UK

Gas Valves

At Universal Supplies (Clydesdale) Ltd we not only supply hydraulic and pneumatic valves in Glasgow and all over the UK, we also supply gas valves for a variety of applications. We can supply many different manufacturers.

They are made of metal or plastic and vary in terms of valve size, pressure rating, number of ports, and flow. Connection types consist of bolt flanges, clamp flanges, union connections, tube fittings, butt welds, socket welds, and internal or external threads.

Gas Valve Applications

Gas valves are used in a variety of applications and industries. For example, some devices are used in aerospace, agricultural, automotive, commercial, construction, cryogenic, fire service, food service, or flood control applications. Others are used in the food processing, irrigation, maritime, medical, mining, or semiconductor industries. High-purity gas valves are used to handle gases such as nitrogen, argon, oxygen, and hydrogen. Specialized gas valves are also used in oil and gas production, the pulp and paper industry, and power generation.

Types of Gas Valves

There are many types of gas valves.

  • Angle valves admit gases at an angle and allow for maximum flow.
  • Balancing valves maintain a consistent temperature and compensate for pressure drops.
  • Ball valves provide tight shut-offs, but are not suitable for sanitary applications.
  • Butterfly valves permit flow in only one direction.
  • Block-and-bleed, blow-off, cartridge, check, and control valves are commonly available.
  • Diaphragm valves separate the flow of gases from the closure element.
  • Directional valves steer flow through selected passages.
  • Diverter valves also redirect gas flow, while drain valves reduce surplus media.
  • Gate or knife valves are linear motion valves in which a closure element slides into the flow to shut off the stream.
  • Globe and pinch valves are other types of linear motion devices.
  • Metering and mixing valves are used in specialized applications.
  • Needle valves have a slender, tapered point at the end of a valve stem.
  • Plug or stop-cock valves are designed for both on/off and throttling functions.
  • Gas valves types include pneumatic valves, poppet valves, pressure relief valves, regulators, safety valves, and sampling valves. Servo, shut off, solenoid, spool, toggle, underwater, and vacuum relief or anti-siphon gas valves are also available.
