Second on our list of three basic valve styles is the Gate Valve. All three can be used for water, oil or airflow control if the casting has "WOG" stamped on it.

Gate valve: Gate valves control water flow with a brass wedge.

Gate valves are called "full-flow" valves; there's a direct unobstructed path for flow right through the middle of the valve. A wedge-shaped brass gate is lowered into a machined slot to close the valve. They should either be completely open or completely closed. Water flowing through a partially open gate valve wears away the metal and causes the valve to fail over time.
