A valve is a device that can be used to control the flow of liquids, gases, and slurries. Also known as regulators, valves can be found in almost any situation. They are also made in a number of different designs, depending on how they are being used, and they can be found in a range of sizes from smaller than a pinky to gigantic. Valves also vary from the extremely basic to the extraordinarily complex. They are one of the oldest mechanical designs, and basic ones have been in use for thousands of years.

The term “valve” can be used to refer to human anatomy as well as a mechanical device. Those found throughout the body regulate the flow of blood, oxygen, and body fluids. They include the extremely important heart valves, which work with the heart to pump blood through the body. Individuals with damage to those in the heart may have them replaced with artificial ones to perform this vital body function. The many valves in the human body work together to keep things running...

I've seen you twice, in a short time

Видела лишь дважды тебя,

Всего лишь неделю мы вместе.

It seems to me, for every time

I was an impossible case

Я сложной загадкой была,

No-one ever could reach me

Никому непонятной,

Valve co-founder and CEO Gabe Newell (Andrea Peterson/Washington Post)

Valve is one of the most successful video game companies in the world. The firm's online game distribution and multi-player platform Steam has 65 million users. At next week's CES conference, the company will announce hardware partners for one of its most ambitious undertakings so far: a line of gaming console alternatives running on the company's linux-based Steam OS.

What makes Valve so successful? In November, I sat down with Valve CEO and co-founder Gabe Newell in the gaming company's Bellevue office for a feature story. Newell argues that attracting and retaining talented programmers and designers is key to the firm's success, and explained the company's strategy for doing that. This interview, the first of a two-part series, has been lightly edited for length and clarity. The second half is available here.

If you need to have a heart valve replacement, you have several choices to consider when discussing your heart valve options with your medical professional. The type of valve and surgical approach have an impact on both your short-term recovery and longer-term quality of life.

Replacement valve’s durability and performance

The ideal replacement valve offers excellent valve function and works in coordination with the entire circulatory system to protect each part from damage. Your medical professional may refer to this as “excellent hemodynamic performance.”

Replacement valve’s risks and medication requirements

The ideal replacement valve also offers long-term durability without significantly increasing the risk of dangerous blood clots or bleeds.

Blood thinner medications can lower your risks of a clot-related stroke or embolism (traveling clot). Clot-risks are higher for people with mechanical valves. On the other hand, blood thinners must...

Many different types of manual valves are used in industrial applications worldwide. The following article will cover the general mechanism and function of the most typical of these valves used in steam systems, such as ball valves, butterfly valves, globe valves, gate valves, and diaphragm valves.

According to JIS, a valve is defined as:

A generic name for a device with a moveable feature* that opens and closes a passageway in order to allow, prevent or control the flow of fluids.

*The moveable feature referred to is the 'valving element'.

Manual Valves by Construction Type

The valving element rotates in the passageway to stop flow.

For further details jump down to: ball valve, butterfly valve

The valving element acts as a 'seal' or 'plug' in the passageway to stop flow.

For further details jump down to: globe valve

The valving element is 'inserted' into the passageway to stop flow.

For further details jump down to:...

What's the world's favorite form of transportation? The car? The bicycle? The jet airplane? If I had to hazard a guess, I'd pick none of these things. Instead, I'd opt for the humble pipeline. You might not notice pipes, but they're transporting vast amounts of fluid (liquid and gas) around the world quietly and efficiently, day in and day out. To work efficiently, pipes need a way of regulating how much fluid can pass through them; they also need a way of switching the flow off completely. That's the job that valves do: valves are like mechanical switches that can turn pipes on and off or raise or lower the amount of fluid flowing through them. Let's take a closer look at how they work!

Photo: This stop valve is manually operated: you open and close it by turning the wheel. A wheel like this makes a valve easier to open because it multiplies the force you apply at the rim to produce a bigger and more useful...
