Valves are essential tools for regulating and directing fluid flow to other machines. These valves do so by opening, closing and partially obstructing their passageways as fluid flows through them. Fluid control is valuable for many industrial setups in oil and gas, chemical processing, pharmaceuticals and other industries.
Glass-Lined Valves and More
The selection of valves at LCEC includes various materials — like glass-lined components — and valve types. Some of the popular valve equipment valves we carry include:
- Diverter: When you have multiple connections that require fluid flow management, diverter valves use a single inlet to direct flow to multiple outlets. These valves can support solids, powders and more.
- Gate: A used gate valve controls fluid flow by inserting a rectangular wedge or gate into the path of the fluid. These gates can close all the way or partially to manage fluid levels. They are controlled by a wheel or motor with a connecting stem.
- Flow meter: If you count on valves to manage fluid flow, a flow meter will measure fluid quantities to make your controls more accurate. A transducer senses fluid as it passes through the meter while a transmitter creates a flow signal you can read.
