Bronze Gate Valves

Bronze gate valves are essential components in plumbing and fluid control systems, known for their reliability and durability. These valves are typically constructed from bronze, a copper alloy, and feature a gate mechanism that can be raised or lowered to control the flow of fluids within pipes. Bronze, with its corrosion-resistant properties, makes these gate valves suitable for use in water systems and various low-pressure environments. They often come in flanged or threaded designs for easy installation and maintenance, and the non-rising stem design ensures that the valve's length remains constant, making them space-efficient.

AV-2100 Lever Gate Valve

Lever-operated gate valves are a type of industrial valve designed to control fluid flow within pipelines and systems. These valves are manually operated using a lever or handle, enabling users to open or close the valve by lifting or lowering a gate inside. Lever gate valves are typically unidirectional, allowing flow in one direction, making them suitable for applications where specific directional control is required. They are constructed from materials like cast iron, bronze, and brass, chosen based on compatibility with the fluid being controlled. The pressure and temperature ratings of these valves vary depending on their design and material, ensuring safe operation within specific ranges. Lever gate valves find common use in industries like water supply, industrial processes, and more, where manual control of fluid flow is essential. Their advantages include simple and reliable operation, forming a tight seal when closed to prevent leaks. When selecting a lever gate valve, factors like material compatibility, pressure, temperature, and directional flow control requirements must be considered. These valves are integral to regulating fluid flow in diverse industrial and commercial settings.
