Knifegate valves can be used in isolation and throttling duties. Knifegate valves consist of a gate machined over the full length for optimal sealing and allow high flow rates with low pressure drops. They are designed for a wide range of applications such as:
- Water & wastewater
- Fly ash handling plants
- Bulk conveying
- Corrosive environments
- Pulp & paper
- Food & beverage
- Chemical plants
They are available with a range of actuators including handwheel, chainwheel, geared, electric, air or hydraulic cylinders.
Brands that we can supply are AVK, Challenger Valves, DeZURIK, HMA Valveco brands Slurry Tamer and Technegate and Orbinox. Orbinox knifegate valves are designed according to MSS-SP-81 and TAPPI TIS 405-8. The epoxy coating on all ORBINOX cast iron and carbon steel valve bodies and components is electrostatically applied for corrosion resistance with a high quality finished surface. The ORBINOX standard colour is RAL-5015 blue.
Midwest Valves & Controls can safely receive and store the heavier valves until they are ready for shipment. Please advise us of any certification requirements at the time of enquiry.
