API 600 Wedge Gate valve
What is API 600 Wedge Gate valve ?
The opening and closing parts of the API 600 Wedge Gate valve are the gate, the direction of motion of the gate is perpendicular to the fluid direction. The wedge gate valve can only be fully opened and fully closed and can not be adjusted and throttled. It consists of a valve body, a bonnet, and a disk that is connected to a hinge. The disk swings away from the valve-seat to allow flow in the forward direction, and returns to valve-seat when upstream flow is stopped, to prevent back flow.

NORTECH advantages of API 600 Wedge Gate valve
1.The flow resistance is small. The internal media channel of the wedge gate valve body is straight through, the medium flows in a straight line and the flow resistance is small.
2.Less effort when opening and closing. Compared with the globe valve, because nomatter it is open or closed, the movement direction of the gate is perpendicular to the flow direction of the medium.
3.Large height, long opening and closing time. The opening and closing stroke of thegate is large, and the lifting is performed by the screw.
4.Water hammer phenomenon is not easy to produce for wedge gate valve. The reason is the long shutdown time.
5.The media can flow in any direction on both sides of wedge gate valve, easy to install. Both sides of the gate channel are symmetrical.
6.The face to the face dimension of wedge gate valve is small.
7.Simple form, short structure length, good manufacture ability and wide range of application.
8 The structure is compact, the wedge gate valve has good rigidity, the channel is smooth, the flow resistance is small, the sealing surface is made of stainless steel and hard alloy, and the service life is long. The use of PTFE packing is reliable and easy to operate.
