Chemical and Petrochemical Industry
Conventional knife gate valves are not usually suitable for use in the chemical and petrochemical industries. They leak in the bore area, get jammed, and are not bubble-tight. However, our knife gate valves come with a unique sealing system and flow-optimized body contours. This design guarantees, firstly, the highest level of reliability when opening and closing the valve and, secondly, absolute zero leakage in both flow directions. Thanks to the possibility of repacking, leakage to the atmosphere can be eliminated directly on site and under full pressure. Without having to remove the knife gate valve or power down the system.
