Industrial valves are used across all industries and form the backbone of all piping systems and networks for controlling flow. There is a huge reliance on mechanical industrial valves for everyday operations across many sectors. Since they do not rely on external power, they are essential safety components preventing backflow, siphonage, air accumulation or for isolating systems during breakdown or maintenance.
Isolation valves are used in fluid handling systems that stop the flow of process fluid to a given place for maintenance, breakdown or diverting flow. Different types of isolating valves have different opening and closing mechanisms.
Ball valves use a rotary ball design as the main component of the valve. Butterfly valves are designed with a disc that rotates to close perpendicular to the flow. Gates valves open and close with a gate wedge perpendicular to the flow direction. Pinch valves use a rubber sleeve to pinch close either by the application of fluid pressure or mechanically in the body.

Check valves are installed in a pipeline to prevent reverse in fluid flow. A check valve allows flow only in one direction through either its single, double disc or ball design. When there is reverse fluid flow, the disc or ball closes against the valve seat, sometimes with the help of a spring or a counterweight.

Backflow preventers stop backflow from happening when there is undesirable reversal of flow of a liquid, gas, or suspended solid into a potable water supply during backsiphonage and backpressure. Backflow preventers function similarly to double check valves with the addition of a reduced pressure zone assembly. When a backflow occurs, both check valves close and the relief valve opens to release the water.

Air Valve &
Air Valve & Vacuum Breaker
Air valves prevent air accumulation and air locks during filling up of the pipeline by discharging the air through its orifice. When the pipe is fully filled with water, a ball float closes against the orifice in the air valve.
Vacuum breakers prevent back siphonage and negative pressure which can contaminate and collapse a piping system by allowing air to enter the pipeline. This happens when there is a pressure drop upstream of the pipe.
