Dual Valves Australasia has recently handed over a new 1500mm knife gate valve incorporating their push-through natural rubber elastomer sleeve design.
According to Justin Mirto of Dual Valves Australasia, this is their largest unit to date in this particular series, and features natural rubber replaceable sleeves, 316 stainless steel blade and spindle, lockout brackets and flushing ports on the underside. Previously the largest unit available from Dual was the 900NB model, but the range of sizes is being expanded to meet increasing customer demand for bigger units.
Dual’s 1500mm knife gate valve was fitted with a double acting hydraulic cylinder as per the client’s specifications and was closed gate tested to a maximum pressure rating of 4.5 Bar, and body tested to 7 Bar.
Justin Mirto explains that the successful design and completion of the 1500NB unit further illustrates Dual’s progress in offering a wide range of options to users of push-through sleeved type knife gate valves and other slurry handling valves.
Dual’s slurry knife gate valves are available in both wafer and flanged versions in various materials and actuation options including the HP model rated to 25 Bar. Dual’s slurry knife gate valves are in use across the world offering high performance and excellent value in diverse applications.
