Let's learn about the relevant knowledge of the angle valve together.

What is an angle valve

Angle valves are angle globe valves. Angle valves are similar to spherical valves, and their structure and characteristics are modified from spherical valves. The difference from the spherical valve is that the outlet of the angle valve is at a 90-degree right angle to the inlet. Angle valve is also called triangle valve, angle valve, angle water valve. This is because the pipe forms a 90-degree corner at the angle valve, so it is called angle valve, angle valve, and angle water valve.

The role of angle valve

  1. Connect the inner and outer water outlets;
  2. If the water pressure is too high, you can adjust it on the triangle valve and turn it down a little;
  3. The function of the switch, if the faucet leaks and other phenomena occur, you can turn off the triangular valve instead of closing the main valve in the home; it will not affect the water in other places in the home.

The characteristics of angle valve

The flow path of the angle valve is simple, and the dead zone and eddy current zone are small. With the help of the scouring effect of the medium itself, it can effectively prevent the medium from clogging, that is, it has better self-cleaning performance.

The flow resistance of the angle valve is small, and the flow coefficient is larger than that of the single-seat valve, which is equivalent to the flow coefficient of the double-seat valve.

Angle valves are suitable for pipelines with high viscosity, suspended solids and granular fluids, or where right-angle piping is required.

The flow direction of the angle valve is generally bottom-in and side-out. In special cases, it can be reversed, that is, the flow direction is side-in and bottom-out.

Where do you need to install angle valves in home decoration
