Functioning and reliable valves are essential for everyone. Which is achievable as long as designer select the right (type, material,etc.) valve for its application, manufacturer applies correct manufacturing process and perform inspection accordingly as per standards, and end-user operate the valve wisely.
As one of the oldest man-made mechanical component, it is unfortunate that frequent valves failure which sometimes lead to environmental and fatality incidents still occurs in modern history. Often due to negligence of understanding simplest valves’ attributes.
