New Orbinox high pressure slurry knife gate valve
Orbinox has launched a new line of heavy duty slurry knife gate valves designed for high pressure applications.
The HG series knife gate valve has been specifically designed to offer excellent performance and low downtime for heavy-duty, high pressure, high solid concentration, erosive-abrasive and corrosive slurry applications, such as those of tailing lines in mineral ore concentration plants or concentrate slurry transport pipelines. The valve body is designed via a single casting and contains two field-replaceable elastomer sleeves. The HG is a bi-directional, full port, ‘100% bubble-tight’ knife gate valve. Orbinox can adapt the valve to suit specific application requirements by offering different materials or fabricated valves as required.
The HG is available in sizes ranging from DN80mm up to DN600mm. It is suitable for working pressures up to 20 bar and slurry temperatures of 80 degrees Celsius and comes with either handwheel, gearbox, pneumatic cylinder, electric or hydraulic actuation options.
Orbinox wafer style, light-body VG knife gate valves are built to offer a high performance and to be an economical solution for light to medium-duty abrasive and corrosive slurry applications. The wide-body heavy-duty WG knife gate valve is a suited for heavy-duty low and medium pressure slurry applications.
