Valves control the flow and pressure of liquids, gases, and slurries within a piping system. They vary widely in size, design, function, and operation. There are many kinds of valves, named in accordance to their flow control mechanism and body design. Examples are Ball Valves, Butterfly Valves, Globe Valves, Gate Valves, and Pinch Valves. Another way valves are distinguished is by their opening and closing function. Linear valves open and close the valve port with linear movement of the disc and seat. Quarter-turn valves open and close via ninety degree rotation of the disc and seat. Manual valves are operated by an operator through the use of hand wheels or lever. Automated valves are operated with the use of an electric, pneumatic, or electrohydraulic actuator . Finally, valves are defined by their service. On-off valves are used in applications where fluid flow is fully on or fully off, as opposed to control valves, where the valve throttles the fluid to control flow and pressure.
