Nibco Gate Valve Applications

Nibco Gate Valves are versatile, bi-directional shut-off valves for commercial and industrial applications. Nibco Gate Valves allow fluid media to flow through the valve without obstruction or interruption. Nibco Gate Valves are operated by closing and opening the valve to control the flow of fluid in a piping system. A simple example of use is to turn on or off water in a pipe in a plumbing or drinking water system in a home or building. The main advantage of Nibco Gate Valves is their direct, unobstructed operation, which results in minimal pressure drop across the valve. They are primarily used with large-diameter pipes (from 2 inches to the largest pipes). Operation of the valve is simple as long as you know how to turn the handwheel or stem of the valve to open and close the flow of water or fluid. Maintenance and care of the valve is important to keep it working efficiently and last for a long time. It should be checked for leaks or stripping on the valve at regular intervals, and additional maintenance may be required according to the manufacturer's or piping system's instructions to maintain the efficiency and safety of the system.
