What is a Globe Valve? Working, Parts, Types (With PDF)

Globe valves are linear motion closing-down valves used to start, stop or regulate the flow using a closure member referred as a disc. The globe valve disk can completely close the flow path or can be removed entirely. The seat opening changes proportionately with the travel of the disc which is ideal for duties involving flow regulation. Globe valves are most suitable and widely used for throttling and controlling fluid flow and are generally employed in small size piping.
A globe valve, different from ball valve, is a type of valve used for regulating flow in a pipeline, consisting of a movable plug or disc element and a stationary ring seat in a generally spherical body. ... This has an opening that forms a seat onto which a movable plug can be screwed in to close (or shut) the valve.
As their name suggests, globe valves are linear motion valves with rounded globular shaped bodies. Since their shape is similar to other valve bodies, positive identification must be made based on internal piping.
