Introduction to High Pressure Valves

High pressure valves are key parts in many industrial systems. They control the flow of liquids or gases under high pressure in places like oil and gas production, power plants, and chemical processing facilities. These valves work by opening, closing, or partially blocking pathways in the system. They come in different types and designs and can be operated manually or automatically. Made from strong materials, they can handle very high pressure and temperature. Besides controlling flow, these valves also help ensure safety by preventing leaks, managing pressure, and isolating parts of the system. They’re made and used according to international rules to ensure they’re reliable and perform well under tough conditions. In the next sections, we’ll look more closely at these important valves, including their design, how they work, their different types, where they’re used, their safety features, how they operate, and the rules that govern their use.
