What are the main functions of a valve

Main functions of a Valve

Valves serve five primary functions in a fluid system. They are:

  1. On/off: starts or stops flow within a system
  2. Flow control: regulates flow
  3. Directional flow: determines the direction of flow
  4. Over-pressure protection: safely relieves system pressure if a pressure spike occurs
  5. Excess flow protection: shuts off or restricts flow to prevent an uncontrolled release of process fluid
