Angle seat valves, or globe valves, are 2/2-way pneumatically actuated piston valves. The piston actuator provides a linear motion to lift the seal off its seat. Because the seat is positioned under an angle, the flow is minimally impeded in the open position, resulting in an excellent flow rate and a low pressure loss. They are used to regulate the flow of liquids, gases, steam, vacuum and even aggressive fluids. They can also operate with high temperatures and high viscosity media, even under zero differential pressures. They can also be designed as manually operated or electrically operated.
