Seat valves

The seat valve is a device in which the flow is controlled by a vertically moving seat. Seat valves are also referred to as poppet valves, cone valves and globe valves. The term ‘globe valve’ derives from the round shape of the valve body.

Seat valves are suitable for both shut-off and control operation, depending on the shape of the closing element. Due to its structure, there is always some flow resistance over a seat valve. A bellows seal can be used for stem sealing if the objective is to make sure no medium escapes into the surrounding environment through the stem seal. Owing to the short vertical movement, a seat valve with a bellows seal is lower than a gate valve with a bellows seal.
