GMK Parallel Plate Gate Valve
Gate valves that operate with plates that are parallel to one another are offered here at GMK. Parallel gate valves are a type of slide valve that features a gate-like closure component that has faces that are parallel to one another. This closing section can be a single disc, or it might be two discs with a spreading mechanism in the middle of the space between them. The amount of force required to press the two components together is determined by the fluid pressure that is applied on either the disc or the seat. When working with twin-disc parallel gate valves, an additional mechanical force that originates from a spreading mechanism located in between the discs can supplement this force.
