This DN65 (2.5″) ORBINOX ‘EX’ series Slurry Knife Gate Valve is destined for use as a control valve on an arduous process slurry application. Our slurry knife gate valve technology was selected to replace a problematic ‘gate valve’ that had failed on numerous occasions, and had been oversized relative to the flow control requirements, resulting in poor process control.
Based on the application, we suggested the body, bonnet & trim in 316 s/steel material, with an EPDM resilient seat, offering a bubble tight shut-off capability. The 60 degree V-port trim offers a characterised control function, to optimise the systems fluid dynamics. The valve will be fitted with a ROTORK IQ series multi-turn electric actuator, in accordance with the customers specifications. The graduated scale offers a visual position indication of the valves travel relative to the input signal. ORBINOX – Valve solutions in more than 70 countries
