A Globe Valve is a type of linear motion valve used to control the flow of fluids or gases within a pipeline. It features a disk or plug that moves perpendicular to the flow, allowing for precise regulation of flow rate.
API Globe Valve
A Globe Valve with a metal seat, designed and produced to API 623 / API602, face to face to ANSI B16.10 with ANSI B16.5 flanges.
API 598 compliance testing was performed. The maximum temperature is 260°C (at 1171 Kpa). Flexible graphite packing and a stainless steel reinforced graphite gasket. Seats and disc are reinforced with 13CR for increased durability and wear.
Excellent for use with steam and at high temperatures. Globe Valves are also frequently utilised in place of gate valves or other manual control valves when the user requires a greater degree of flow control. As the shaft descends, it has a 'globe shape' on the bottom that gradually reduces the flow until shutting off on the seat.
All globe valves include cast heat numbers for quality assurance in testing and mil certifications.

What is a Globe Valve?
How does a Globe Valve work?
Globe valves operate by raising or lowering the disk or plug within the valve body. When the valve is fully open, the disk is lifted, permitting maximum flow. Closing the valve lowers the disk, restricting flow.
Where are globe valves commonly used?
Globe valves are found in various industries, including oil and gas, power generation, water treatment, HVAC systems, and more. They are often used in applications that require throttling, precise flow control, or isolation.
Are Globe Valves safe and easy to use?
Globe Valves, given their special ability to function flawlessly at extremely high temperatures, are one of the safest valves to use.
At Freture, all our valves are manufactured as per international standards. Are 100% leak-proof and emission free. Saves down-time and process media. Maintenance free. Easy to install and remove.
Do I really need a Globe Valve for my factory?

If you’re from another industry looking for more details about how you can benefit from using a Globe Valve, please get in touch with us here for further discussion.
What are the advantages of using Globe valves?
Globe valves offer excellent flow control, minimal pressure drop, and the ability to handle high-pressure and high-temperature fluids. They provide a reliable shutoff and can be used for both on-off and throttling services.
Can Globe Valves be used for both upward and downward flow?
Yes, Globe Valves can be used for both upward and downward flow. The flow direction is indicated by the arrow on the valve body, ensuring proper installation.
Can Globe Valves be Automated?
Yes, Globe Valves can be automated using various types of actuators, such as electric, pneumatic, or hydraulic. Automation enables remote operation, integration into control systems, and precise flow regulation.

What is the difference between a Globe Valve and a Gate Valve?
While both are linear motion valves, the key difference is in the mechanism and flow control. A Globe valve controls flow by raising or lowering a disk perpendicular to the flow, allowing precise regulation. A Gate valve controls flow with a flat or wedge-shaped gate that moves parallel to the flow.
