Global leader in heavy-duty industrial valve manufacturing and service, Flowrox Pty Ltd introduces a new range of pinch valves designed to enhance current pipeline equipment and processes using the latest technology in fluid control.
Developed for use in the oil & gas, mining, minerals and metallurgy, and waste water industries, the new PVG valve from Flowrox is particularly suitable for situations where abrasive or corrosive slurries, powders and coarse substances are processed.
Flowrox has used its three decades of experience and strong understanding of industrial fluid control to engineer its PVG valve at full bore with no flow restrictions, allowing processes with abrasive or corrosive fluids such as lime slurry or mineral slurries. The main benefit of a full bore design is that the PVG valve itself becomes an integral part of the pipe and is able to process the same fluids in harsh conditions.
Flowrox's new PVG valve not only offers strength and resistance to aggressive slurries, but is also designed as a full port fluid control device to allow a more efficient process, requiring less pumping energy. Reduced head pressure additionally helps lower pump costs and eliminates unnecessary turbulence in pipelines handling abrasive slurries.
Flowrox is actively marketing the PVG valve to all major municipalities and power plants in North America managing fluid control processes that require precision and performance directly related to revenue generation. The core benefit of incorporating Flowrox's PVG valves is a reduction of the lowest total cost of ownership.
Anthony Clark, Vice President of Sales at Flowrox explains that their PVG valve offers great in-field flexibility as it can be easily replaced on-site without major delays in operation. The valve’s guaranteed long operational lifetime also offers the assurance of reliability.
Flowrox's PVG valve also reduces any potential corrosion or deterioration due to wear-and-tear even when processing the most corrosive chemicals, thanks to an innovative elastic sleeve, which is the only part in contact with the medium.
Flowrox offers the benefits of low maintenance and trouble-free operation in its new industrial valves without jamming or clogging, giving peace of mind thanks to their long service intervals and reduced cost of ownership.
