Pipe valves are used to block pipes to varying extents. Valves restrict the flow of liquids, gasses, vapors, slurries, and more. They operate by applying pressure or mechanically blocking the material being transported. High-quality pipe valves are a must; you need to trust that your valves close tightly to prevent the escape of pollutants, toxic gases, or corrosive chemicals. You can trust Hoffmeyer pipe valves to give you the safety and reliability you and your workers deserve!
There are three main parts of a pipe valve: the "seat", an outer assembly made of metal or plastic; the "body", a soft inner portion (made of rubber or plastic) which opens and closes the valve; and a control mechanism (such as a hand lever) for opening and closing the valve.
Many types of pipe valves are available: check valves, ceramic disc valves, choke valves, ball valve, and butterfly valves. Pressure-reducing valves, globe valves, gate valves, safety valves, stopcocks (or "cocks"), ball cocks, flow control valves, and sampling valves are also available.
Ball cocks are frequently used in cisterns to regulate the flow of water when it reaches a certain level. Flow control valves regulate the amount of liquid or gas flowing through a pipe; they are used extensively in household gas stoves. Many companies also use pipe valves to restrict flow for safety and quality control purposes.
