A globe valve essentially stops, starts and regulates flow in a pipeline. It is used to control or stop the flow of liquid or gas through a pipe. Globe valves are named for their spherical body shape with the two halves of the body being separated by an internal baffle. These valves exhibit slightly higher pressure drops than gate or ball valves, however they may be used where the pressure drop through the valve is not a controlling factor. Globe valves are also known as Throttle Valves in some regions.
For large industrial applications, a Globe Valve may be sealed using an electrical, pneumatic, or hydraulic actuator instead of a manual handle.
A Globe Valve is comprised of a movable disc-type element and a stationary ring seat in a generally spherical body. The seat of a Globe Valve is in the middle of and parallel to the pipe, and the opening in the seat is closed off with a disk or plug. Globe valves can be structured to handle flow in either direction.
Unlike the gate valve, globe valve can be used for regulating flow or pressures as well as complete shutoff of flow. It may also be used sometime as a pressure relief valve or as a check valve. Compared with a gate valve or ball valve, the globe valve has considerably higher pressure loss in the fully open position. They are widely used for cooling water systems, fuel oil systems, feed water and chemical feed systems an boiler and main steam vents and drains. Globe Valves are used in many different industries such both onshore and offshore oil and gas, mining, petrochemical and for pharmaceutical applications.

Globe Valves are widely used for a few key factors. The advantages of Globe Valves are that they have great shutoff capability, moderate to good valve throttling, a shorter stroke compared to a gate valve and they’re easy to machine or resurface the seats. They are also flexible to be used as a stop-check valve.
The disadvantages or a Globe Valve are that they have a higher pressure drop compared to a gate valve and require greater force or a larger actuator to seat the valve.
It’s always best to have a qualified technician install your valves for industrial applications. However if you want to be able to install a Globe Valve yourself, contact a valve expert to guide you through the process. Winnellie Valves and Process also provide valve training courses for all types of valves.
Globe Valves, like many other types of valves, require regular servicing and maintenance if you want to extend their service life. For more information on how to maintain your valves, contact a Winnellie Valves and Process expert today.
