Home / Valves / Cast Steel Gate Valve ( C. S. Gate Valve )
A Cast Steel gate valve is a type of valve that is made of cast steel and is used to control the flow of liquids or gases. It consists of a gate or wedge that sits inside the valve body, which can be moved up or down to open or close the flow. The gate can be a solid or a split type. The valve is operated by a handle or a wheel that turns a threaded stem, which in turn moves the gate.
Cast steel gate valves are known for their durability and strength and are typically used in industrial applications such as oil and gas, power generation, and high-pressure systems. They can handle high pressure and temperature, and are suitable for use with a wide range of liquids and gases. They are also easy to maintain and repair.
One of the main advantages of cast steel gate valves is that they are able to withstand higher pressure and temperature than cast iron valves, making them suitable for use in high-pressure systems. They are also more resistant to corrosion, which makes them suitable for use in harsh environments.
It is important to match the valve with the correct pressure class and the correct type of fluid. Some standards for Cast Steel gate valves are API 600, API 6D, ASME B16.34, MSS SP-81, and ISO 10434.
