Angle valve

Angle valve

An angle valve is a type of valve used to control the flow of a liquid or gas through a pipe. It is named for its body design, which features a 90-degree angle between the inlet and outlet ports. This unique configuration allows angle valves to be used in applications where space is limited or where the flow needs to be redirected.

Key features and benefits of angle valves:

  1. Space-saving design: The 90-degree angle between the inlet and outlet ports allows angle valves to be installed in tight spaces or close to walls, making them ideal for applications with limited room for valve installation.
  2. Flow redirection: Angle valves are used to change the direction of flow by 90 degrees, which can simplify piping layout and reduce the number of fittings required.
  3. Precise flow control: Many angle valves, such as angle globe valves, provide excellent flow regulation capabilities, allowing for accurate control of the flow rate.
  4. Tight shutoff: When fully closed, angle valves can provide a tight seal, preventing leakage and ensuring reliable shutoff.
  5. Versatile configurations: Angle valves are available in various types, such as angle globe valves, angle seat valves, and angle check valves, each designed for specific applications and flow control requirements.

Angle valves are used in a wide range of applications, including:

  • Steam systems
  • Boiler feedwater systems
  • Condensate return lines
  • Instrumentation and sampling lines
  • Radiator and baseboard heating systems
  • Compressed air systems
  • Chemical processing plants

Their space-saving design, flow redirection capabilities, and precise flow control make them a valuable component in many industrial and commercial piping systems.
