What is the Double Disc Gate Valve?

The advantages of the Double Disc Gate Valve versus the traditional wedge type product are:

  • The discs of parallel slide gate valve will never block in closed position,while it may occur with a wedge type that has been closed with the line in temperature and opened when the line is cold.
  • The opening/closing torque of parallel slide gate valve is much lower than a corresponding gate valve wedge type valve,resulting in smaller actuator and less expensive actuation systems.
  • The “sliding” feature keeps dirt away from the sealing surfaces.

Sealing mechanism of the Double Disc Gate Valve.

  • When the pipe pressure or pressure difference of two sides is small,the compressed spring will push the discs to the sealing rings,it’s the initial sealing of the parallel slide gate valves under low pressure conditions.
  • When the pipeline pressure increase,the increasing line pressure will push the disc against the seat ring with force in the low pressure side,which creates the secondary seal. The higher the medium pressure,the better the sealing performance

Therefore this valve type is widely used in high pressure and high temperature services such as steam and feedwater.
