The Angle Valve: Its Functions and Features
For machines to perform at optimal levels the right materials, metals, and valves are needed.
The valves we use not only protect the machine and pipes’ longevity, but also the workers who use
and supervise them on a daily basis. To protect our workers and our investments, we’ll need the
highest quality valves on the market.
We’ll also need a guarantee of the products we use and an understanding of how they make
processes run more smoothly and effectively.
The angle valve, sometimes referred to as a stop valve, is key to securing safe processes and use of

valves are so vital to the proper functioning of machinery.
The Angle Valve: Functions and Features
Angle valves are used in many settings from the toilet in your home to a ship on the Pacific.
They’re an essential component of many machines and allow for the safe processing of a variety of
liquids, chemicals, and gases. Explore the following functions and features of the angle valve to
learn more about its value.
Features of Angle Valves
Angle valves come in many designs and sizes. The size and design of the angle valve are
determined by the scope of the project and the size of the piping. For heavy duty processes, larger
and higher quality angle valves are essential.
All angle valves are equipped with a right angle with inlet and outlet openings. They also have a
valve mechanism which can be altered to control flow. Each angle valve is equipped to handle a
certain amount of pressure based on mechanical function and materials used.
Angle valves also have some type of seal, plug, and stem which helps to regulate flow.
Functions of Angle Valves
Angle valves regulate flow, control flow, and reduce pressure. They can also influence temperature
and regulate material levels.
The mechanisms used to achieve these functions, however, may differ. For example, angle valves
can be used as shutoff valves, needle valves, check valves, and stop-check valves.
As the flow is regulated, the angle valve reduces cavitation, vibration, corrosion, and noise. When
the valve is engaged, the fluid or gas flows at a right angle toward the direction it enters the valve.
Engaging the valve can isolate flow to provide additional control for the machinery’s overall
functioning and operation.
The Industrial Angle Valve
An angle valve is needed for nearly every mechanical operation which needs to be in control of
flow, temperature, and pressure. For industrial operations, however, an angle valve needs to be
highly reliable and dependable to ensure safe operation and successful processing.
