Lockshield Gate Valves
Gate Valves are essential components of systems that require isolation of flow. Unlike control or regulating valves, they are not suitable for use in controlling or regulating flow. These valves are typically preferred when minimal pressure loss is crucial, as they have a fully open configuration with minimal interruptions to flow.
The operation of gate valves involves turning the stem to move the gate inside the valve. This movement either facilitates or interrupts the flow of the system. For additional security, these valves are equipped with a lockshield that only authorised users can operate.
These valves are WRAS approved and can be used with BS EN 1057 pipework. They are readily available for purchase, with same-day despatch and free shipping.
