Recently I took a exam asking how many turns does it take to close a 6 inch gate valve for the full open position? I dont know the answer, so I guessed 19 turns of the whell operator since I had no references to go by. Does any one know the answer? Does anyone care? Just curious. BTW the question was civil service exam.
