Topic: Re: Are Full Port Valves Necessary For All Steam Lines?

posed by 
Full port valves are generally specified for steam line drip legs and for blow-down lines where some solid particles could accumulate.  I don't think it is necessary to recommend full port valves for all steam lines.  It is common to specify Globe valves and other types of control valves at steam lines depending upon their specific needs.
