Gate valves are the most commonly used valves in industrial piping. They also sometimes are used in residential piping. Gate valves have a significant advantage simply because they cause less obstruction to substance flow and also lead to a very low pressure drop within the valve. They have a sliding metal gate that slides up or down to open or close the pipe’s passage, allowing flow or stopping it completely.
