Gate Valve, is a valve which opens by lifting a round or rectangular gate/wedge out of the path of the fluid. The distinct feature of a gate valve is the sealing surfaces between the gate and seats are planar, so gate valves are often used when a straight-line flow of fluid and minimum restriction is desired. It offers small fluid resistance as the inner media channel of the body is straight. It flows though the valve which does not hampers the direction of the flow. It is an energy-efficient alternative as it consumes less power while opening or closing.
