The WG slurry heavy duty knife gate valve extends the time between maintenance shutdowns by more than 6 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 primary grinding hydrocyclones in the copper ore concentrator plant.

Until now, maintenance shutdowns were taking place every three weeks. The application required a robust, heavy-duty knife gate valve to ensure a large number of cycles, thus optimizing the operation of the hydrocyclones.

ORBINOX suggested the installation of a WG heavy-duty slurry knife gate valve, which is characterized by its very robust design sleeves. After 6 months of operation, the valve and especially the sleeves were in perfect conditions.
