Valves, Piping and Pipelines Handbook

Valves, Piping and Pipelines Handbook: Valves may be classified in a number of ways, e.g. by category (general type),specHic type, purpose or name: or by flow characteristics (e.g. straight-through,full-flow or throttled-flow). Descriptions can also differ slightly in different countries although the main type names are established internationally (with some exceptions).
