Being a linear operation, and requiring a low operating force to open, globe valves can be readily actuated for remote operation.
Globe valves can be straight through, angle or oblique pattern. the oblique pattern increases the flow coefficient to reduce the pressure drop.
When selecting a globe valve, it is important to consider operating temperature and pressure, media properties, flow requirements, duty requirements, physical limitations and suitability for the environment. When installing it is vital to ensure that the valve is positioned so that the flow is from the bottom of the valve to the top.
