The WG knife gate valve extends the time between maintenance shutdowns by more than 12 months

This prestigious Mining Company was looking to optimize the time between maintenance shutdowns and increase the life of the knife gate valves installed in its hydrocyclones in the iron ore concentrator plant.

Until now, the valves had a durability of 6 months. This point of application required a robust, heavy-duty knife gate valve to withstand a large number of cycles, thus optimizing the operation of the hydrocyclones.

ORBINOX suggested the installation of a WG slurry heavy duty knife gate valve, which is characterized by its very robust design sleeves. The result is that the valve has lasted, for now, twice as long as the previous one and the client has been able to reduce maintenance shutdowns.
