Difference between Metal seated gate valve and resilient seated gate valve

Difference between Metal seated gate valve and resilient seated gate valve

  • 2020/07/28

Before the resilient seated gate valve was introduced to the market, gate valves with a metal seated wedge were widely used. The conical wedge design and angular sealing devices of a metal seated wedge require a depression in the valve bottom to ensure a tight closure. Herewith, sand and pebbles are embedded in the bore. The pipe system will never be completely free from impurities regardless of how thoroughly the pipe is flushed upon installation or repair. Thus any metal wedge will eventually lose its ability to be drop-tight.


A resilient seated gate valve has a plain valve bottom allowing free passage for sand and pebbles in the valve. If impurities pass as the valve closes, the rubber surface will close around the impurities while the valve is closed. A high-quality rubber compound absorbs the impurities as the valve closes, and the impurities will be flushed away when the valve is opened again. The rubber surface will regain its original shape securing a drop-tight sealing.


The vast majority of XUVAL's gate valves are resilient seated gate valves, however metal seated gate valves are still requested in some markets, so they are still part of our range for water supply and wastewater treatment.
