A gate valve, or sluice valve" is a valve that is used to seal off straight-flow lines of fluid. They prevent liquid from flowing.

regulator consisting of a valve or gate that controls the rate of water flow through a sluice

A sluice valve is a gate valve. The terminology 'sluice valve' is usually applied when the gate valve is used in an open channel, like in a dam gate. It can be thought of as a flat plate that can be lowered into or lifted out of the flow channel. Of course, the actual designs are more sophisticated than that.

Absolutely NOTAs well as I know, a sluice valve, also known as a gate valve, is a way to control the flow of water through a straight line pipe. They are simple in operation and quite common. Sluice valves are so named because they operate similarly to a sluice gate. By turning a handle, a gate is lowered into the pipe, blocking the flow.While is a valve that opens by lifting a round or rectangular gate/wedge out of the path of the fluid. Sometimes, it also know as sluice valve. So you can say are same but not absolutely.

The difference is that a sluice gate is made out of cast iron while a slide gate isn't.

a gate valve is a positive shut off valve for liquids and gases and should only be used in the fully open or closed positions, different temperatures and pressures must be considered to insure the correct type of valve to install. a sluice valve is a non-positive shut off valve used for heavier materials such as stone,grain,sand,etc.

Its a vertical plate valve which can be opened to varying heights to allow a controlled water flow.

A gate valve, or a sluice vault, is used when you want as little friction as possible when opening and/or closing a flow in a pipe. In the petroleum industry a knife valve is used to basically cut through the liquid.

A sluice is any watercourse controlled by a moving plate at its end, like a portcullis, in a set of grooves to change the opening size or close it. It is not just the gate/control system itself; this is properly called a sluice gate or slide gate.
