Globe valves have sphere-shaped bodies. Inside the valve, a baffle separates two halves. This internal structure creates a different flow path than ball valves and other rotary-type valves.
Globe valves actuate in a linear movement.Oil and gas producers use globe valves to control the flow, pressure and temperature of process fluid, water, or gas.
Producers can control globe valves with mechanical, pneumatic, or electric power. Depending on the type, the valve can provide either on/off or throttling service.
