Other Valves

There are other types of valves available as well.  Butterfly valves offer large sizes, usually flanged, with a ¼ turn operator like ball valves.  Check valves allow flow in just one direction.  Gate and globe valves offer multi-turn options for lower pressure plumbing applications.  Slide valves are often used on FRL’s to reduce the size of a valve body relative to the pipe size while still providing on/off services and some throttling.  Gauge cocks are plug valves that are increasingly being replaced by ball and needle valves.
