Section 20
A globe valve is a type of valve used for regulating flow in a pipeline, consisting
of a movable disk-type element and a stationary ring seat in a generally spherical
body. Globe valves are named for their spherical body shape with the two halves
of the body being separated by an internal baffle. This has an opening that forms
a seat onto which a movable plug can be screwed in to close the valve. The plug
is also called a disc or disk. In globe valves, the plug is connected to a stem which
is operated by screw action in manual valves. Globe valves are typically used for
applications requiring throttling and frequent operation.
