Heavy Duty Design
The heavy-duty one-piece body ensures that the valve resists pipe expansion and pipe misalignments. Fewer pipe support needed.
An extra thick heavy-duty gate extends the valve’s life and is less vulnerable to fluid hammer. The gate is precision ground so a good gland seal is obtained and the gate doesn’t need to be manually scrubbed after the valve has been operated.
The robust pedestal is laser cut for uncompromising support of the actuator & gate even at awkward angles and large enough that the maintenance crew have adequate access to tightening the gland. Instrumentation mounting points are standard.
The sacrificial deflection cone protects the seat from premature wear by lifting the flow over the metal seat to protect it from the destructive action of the slurry. It is made from a hard 75 Rockwell high chrome material designed to be resistant to erosion and easily replaceable.
Guards can be added to protect the moving parts from debris and to protect personnel from injury.
