Iran Produces Gate Valves to Regulate Flow of Oil
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran on Saturday inaugurated the production line of gate valves used to regulate the flow of oil which is due to be transferred from Goreh region to Jask port.
The production line of Iran-made gate valves, used in the transmission line of crude oil to Jask, was unveiled in a ceremony in the presence of Iranian Vice President for Science and Technology Sorena Sattari.
The production line has been developed with the partnership of two large and old machine-building companies and Gadakhtar Arak Company.
The crude oil transfer project from the Goreh area to Jask port with a length of approximately 1,100 km is one of the most important national projects that is used to transfer 2 million barrels of crude oil per day.
Gate valves are bi-directional valves that are used to start or stop the flow of medium through a pipeline. These valves feature a gate that moves up and down to open and close the valve. Gate valves can be either fully open or fully closed. They are used to start and stop the flow but cannot be used for regulating or throttling applications.
Gate valves are commonly used to regulate the flow of water, oil, gas, steam, and other fluid services. They provide low-pressure drops and can work with high-pressure and high-temperature applications.
