Angle valves are similar to the globe valve except they are at 90 deg to the inlet. Angle valve can be used at the 90 deg bends due less resistance to the flow. It also reduces the number of joints in a line and saves on installation.

It is also easy and flexible on maintenance. The valve can be removed, repaired, installed without removal of instrument and actuator connections.
