Knife Gate Valves

Knife Gate Photo This knife gate valve is designed specifically for handling dry bulk materials. The patented design has eliminated trouble spots inherent with conventional knife gates and butterfly valves.

Features and Options Include:

Double Acting Air Cylinder, Electric Actuator, Handcrank or Chainwheel Actuator

All Moving Parts are Shielded When Gate is Installed

  • Safe operation, no pinch points or exposed moving parts
  • Lightweight Construction Materials - Easier Installation

    Standard Tube or ANSI 125# Pipe Flange Connection

    Optional Position Proofing

    Optional Positioning Controls for Metering Material Flow

    Corrosion and Wear Resistant Construction

  • Improved gate performance on a wide range of materials
  • Extended service lifeL
  • Unobstructed Orifice

  • Unrestricted flow of materials
  • Improved air conveying system performance
  • Cleaner operation
  • Optional Special Service Inlet

    Optional Lined Orifice

    Hard Polymer Seals

  • Wear resistant and long term trouble free service
  • Self-Cleaning Action

  • Mechanically self-cleans on the opening stroke
  • No open chest areas where materials can lodge and remain trapped
  • Superior Closing Action

  • Minimum shearing of materials
  • Reduced gate wear
  • Reliable Sealing*

  • Positive material and air flow shut off up to 15 PSIG
  • *Consult factory for pressure rating of each orifice gate size and series
  • Narrow Profile

  • Easier installation in restricted areas

  • Standard gate construction will handle applications up to 180û F. (See high temperature modifications)
  • Equipment weighing in excess of 200 lbs., above or below the gate, should be supported to insure optimum gate performance.
  • In order for the Orifice Gate to self-clean, the gate must cycle full open.
