1.Introduction of Cast Steel Gate Valve
Cast steel gate valve is characterized by a “gate” that closes in a plane perpendicular to the flow of fluid. They are used primarily for on/off, nonthrottling service. Shearing of high-velocity flow will cause a partially open disk to vibrate and chatter, which will damage the seating surfaces and prevent a tight seal. Cast steel gate valve is suitable for most fluids including steam, water, oil, air, and gas. cast steel gate valve may have either a solid or flexible wedge disk. In addition to on/off service, cast steel gate valve can be used for regulating flow, usually in sizes 6 in. and larger, but will chatter unless the disk is fully guided throughout travel.

Cast steel gate valve respond slowly, requiring numerous turns of the handwheel, to go from fully open to fully closed. The disks are made in either a solid or flexible wedge disk. Flexible disks were developed to overcome sticking on cooling in high-temperature service and minimize operating torque. High-pressure service of large sizes is usually cheaper than plug or ball.
Cast steel gate valve is more commonly used in refineries and petrochemical plants where pressure remains relatively low, but temperature may be very high. Gate valves are used less in upstream oil and gas production facilities due to high operating pressures, long opening/closing times, and severe environmental conditions when operating in marine atmospheres.
