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

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.
