A Gate valve involves a sluice which goes in or out a liquid flow to close or open it. We recognize them by a body as large as the diameter to close is big.
We can find them on large water mains, eventually large piped underground canals and usage=headrace tunnels.

You can complete their description in OSM with actuator=*, turn_to_close=* or handle=*. See examples
