Food Industry Knife Gate Valves

Always nice to see our ORBINOX ‘BC’ square ported knife gate valve technology for the food industry going through the workshop #kudos

The valve body has been fabricated from AISI 316 material c/w custom flange alignment, AISI 316 mirror polished gate, metal seat, PTFE-H packing, and automated with our double acting pneumatic cylinder. Our proprietary PneuLINK™ linear to rotary integrated control platform was selected c/w an intrinsically safe Valve Control Monitor, incorporating the 2-off NAMUR inductive sensors, and the integral 5/2 mono-stable solenoid valve. The open / closed position BEACON indicator, with 360° colour coding for maximum visual impact, offers instant visual recognition of the valves position from all vantage points up to 50 metres. Our valves have been assessed and certified by a third party notified body for use in category 1 (internal) and category 2 & 3 (external) applications, for both dust and gas hazards.

Our high integrity knife gate valve technology was selected for use on a bulk handling application within the food industry, meeting both EC1935/2004 & ATEX 2014/34/EU regulations.
