Gate

Valves : GateView Category

These are valves that have a drop down gate, which moves slowly with the turn of the hand wheel. This allows for more control of the flow.  Over a period of time, gate valves may not fully open or close.

 
Ball

Valves : BallView Category

Ball valves have a ball in the middle with a hole that can be turned to the side to stop flow, or opened to allow unrestricted flow. These valves are a better solution than a gate valve because they always close fully over time while a gate valve over time will sometimes not close or open fully.

 
Check

Valves : CheckView Category

Check valves are those which only allow one direction of flow. They have a small "door" on a spring with a ball that will open one direction, but when flow reverses, the door will shut and stop backflow.

 
Globe

Valves : GlobeView Category

Globe valves are made with a circular plug and a tapered seat. The plug moves up and down allowing better control of flow between the on and off positions.

 
Lab

We carry lab valves in various sizes and styles.

 
Butterfly

Valves : ButterflyView Category

A butterfly valve can be used for isolating or regulating flow. The closing mechanism takes the form of a disk. Operation is similar to that of a ball valve, which allows for quick shut off. Butterfly valves are generally favored because they are lower in cost to other valve designs as well as being lighter in weight, meaning less support is required. The disc is positioned in the center of the pipe, passing through the disc is a rod connected to an actuator on the outside of the valve. Rotating the actuator turns the disc either parallel or perpendicular to the flow. Unlike a ball valve, the disc is always present within the flow, therefore a pressure drop is always induced in the flow, regardless of valve position.

 
Strainers

Valves : StrainersView Category

Strainers have a screen with several holes to allow the flow of the desired substance, while separating out unwanted matter.

 
Valve Boxes

Valves : Valve BoxesView Category

We carry both round and rectangular valve boxes in several sizes. Round valve boxes feature overlapping covers to prevent dirt and grass from settling between body and cover, making it easier to remove over time. Our valve boxes also contain UV inhibitors to help prevent discoloration and cracking.
