Globe Valves: How to Optimize Your Designs

Evaluate, validate, and optimize designs iteratively and easily in a cloud-based platform.

A globe valve, different from other types of valve devices, is utilized for regulating fluid flow in a pipeline, and is characterized by a mobile plug or disc element as well as a static ring seat within a (commonly) spherical body.

Typical Globe Valve Applications

These types of valves can be applied to a number of scenarios, including::

  • Turbine lube oil systems
  • Turbine drains and seals
  • High-point vents and low-point drains
  • Fuel oil systems
  • Systems where leak tightness is important
  • Cooling liquid systems

Why Is Online Simulation with SimScale Needed for This Application?

Globe valve applications need to be analyzed in the early design process to predict performance in terms of pressure drop and force acting on the walls within a structure. However, the high cost of hardware and steep learning curves of traditional, on-premises tools leave many designers to feel that simulation is not an option.

SimScale has made it possible to jump through such traditional hurdles, thanks to the power of the cloud. With SimScale, engineers can now:.

  • Run multiple simulations in parallel for faster design optimization
  • Get started quickly with an easy-to-learn interface
  • Avoid manual updates, installation, or maintenance
  • Simulate other CFD, FEA, or thermal applications
