WZ545 horizontal flanged gate valve is a type of valve used to control the flow of fluid in a pipeline. As the name suggests, this type of valve is installed in a horizontal pipeline and features flanges on either end for easy installation and maintenance.
Horizontal flanged gate valves are typically used in applications where a straight-through flow is required and where the valve may need to be frequently inspected or repaired. They are commonly used in industries such as water and wastewater treatment, chemical processing, and oil and gas.

Horizontal Gate Valve Structure
Horizontal gate valve consists of handle, valve stem, valve plug, valve cover, shell and so on.
The lower end of the shell through the flange constitutes a chamber, the valve stem through the valve plug, the valve stem head is located in the chamber, by the valve stem head and flat gasket, through the installation of fixings to form an eccentric bonnet.
Horizontal valves are tightly sealed, easy to operate, and are used in liquid flow pipelines.
Differences Between Horizontal and Vertical Gate Valves
- Horizontal can effectively avoid high temperature radiation above the pipeline. The disadvantage is that it takes up a lot of space.
- The advantage of vertical type is that it occupies less space and is easy to install. If the pipeline is high, it is not conducive to maintenance.
