Globe Valves

Curtiss-Wright Valves Division offers a wide range of globe valves in a variety of construction materials, showcasing a variety of versatility and adjustment to suit a diverse set of specifications. Globe valves are designed to stop, start, and regulate flow within a pipeline, by means of throttling and isolation. These types of valves can be used in application with marine ballast systems, as well as heating and air conditioning, water distribution and/or treatment, and much more.

Curtiss-Wright's Globe Valves come from its Phönix and Strack valve group manufacturing product brands, both of whom pride themselves in providing high quality, reliable valves and equipment. Our globe valves feature the three typical body designs: Tee, Angle, and Wye pattern, and we also supply electric, hydraulic, and more, types of valve actuators to suit every industrial requirement.

GLOBE VALVES: PURPOSE & FUNCTIONALITY

A globe valve can stop, start and regulate flow in a pipeline. The valve is shaped like a sphere and includes a stem that moves up and down, a disc and a seat. It works by the disc lowering or raising through the valve stem. When the disc lowers the flow pattern shuts off; if the disc increases to maximum, the flow runs at maximum too. If the disc raises to less than maximum, the flow regulates in proportion to the vertical disc position. The flow inside a globe valve changes involves the change in direction, causing greater resistance and high pressure to drop. 
 

FEATURES & BENEFITS

  • Easy maintenance and repair
  • Good shutoff capability
  • Shorter stem travel
  • Available in a variety of patterns
  • Good throttling capability
  • Can be used as a stop check valve

GLOBE VALVE APPLICATIONS

Globe valves work in a variety of applications, dependent on the purpose and raw materials used. They are reliable performance in high temperature and pressure services, to regulate steam and condensate and even in nuclear plants.
 
They can also apply in these other disciplines:
  • Cooling water systems
  • Fuel oil systems
  • Boiler vents and drains
  • Turbine seals and drains

TYPES OF GLOBE VALVES

Globe valves come in a variety of body patterns, but the primary three types include standard, angle, and oblique. 
 

Standard Pattern Globe Valve

The most common of the three, it's used in throttling services such as around a control valve. By allowing the stem and disk to move at an angle towards the direction of the fluid, the design offers a higher flow resistance of all patterns.
 

Angle Pattern Globe Valve

An angle pattern globe valve features a 90-degree angle at the ends. This unique design means that angle pattern globe valves are useful in applications that have pulsating flow. It’s highly advantageous when mounting near a pipe bend, the angle design reduces the flow resistance and reduces the number of pipe joints and elbows. 
 

Oblique Pattern Globe Valve

In an oblique pattern globe valve then seat and stem measure at approximately 45 degrees. Giving a more direct path at full opening and also offering the least resistance to flow. They are a suitable alternative for a high-pressure drop application.

FAQ

How does a globe valve work?

A globe valve is used for throttling flow control and is often used for on-off service. The fluid shut-off is achieved by moving the disc against the flow stream, and the flow pattern involves changes in direction, resulting in greater resistance to flow, causing a high-pressure drop. 

 

What is a high pressure globe valve?

 A high-pressure globe valve is a globe valve designed to handle high-pressure and high-temperature applications, making it a popular valve option in nuclear plants.

What is the difference between a gate valve and a globe valve?

  1. A gate valve shuts off flow by moving the disc across the flow stream, it can be installed in various directions, but it can’t regulate the flow level.
  2. A globe valve shuts off flow by moving the disc against the flow stream; it regulates flow but can only be installed in one direction.

Are globe valves directional?

A Globe valve has specific flow directions; the disc will close against or in the same direction of fluid flow. Depending on the application, flow pressure, and flow temperature, fluid will be above or below the disc.

 
  1. For low temperature and pressure applications, globe valves are usually installed so that pressure is under the disk. 
  2. For high temperature and pressure applications, such as steam, globe valves are installed so that pressure is above the disk.
