What Is a Globe Valve?

Globe valves are a type of stop valve and are commonly confused with ball valves, but they are different. A globe valve manages water flow in a pipeline. It consists of a movable disk-type element and a stationary ring seat, and this is typically in a spherical body, hence globe. The plug is a disc, and it is connected to a stem which operates through a screw action. Automatic globe valves use smooth stems, not threaded and use an actuator assembly.
