What is a knife gate valve

Knife gate valve, also known as knife gate valve, knife-type slurry valve, in less than two decades, its scope of use has expanded from ordinary fields to a wider range of industries. Coal preparation, gangue discharge and slag discharge from mines and power plants. It has developed into urban sewage treatment, and has developed from general industrial pipelines to professional pipeline systems such as food, sanitation, and medicine. The ultra-thin knife gate valve completely solves the large flow resistance of ordinary gate valves, flat gate valves, ball valves, globe valves, regulating valves, butterfly valves, etc. with its advantages of small size, small flow resistance, light weight, easy installation, and easy disassembly. , Heavy weight, difficult installation, large area and other difficult problems. After the emergence of knife gate valves, a large number of general shut-off valves and regulating valves have been replaced. To date, the world's largest consumption of knife gate valves is the United States and Japan.

Frequently Asked Question

Do you have any question?

A knife gate valve is a component that utilizes a blade to cut through clogging of heavy liquids; whereas a slide gate valve is a component utilizing a slide plate in order to better manipulate or control the flow of dry bulk material. Knife gate valves were originally designed for use in the pulp and paper industry.

Knife gate valves should only be used for applications requiring a completely open or completely closed position and should not be used to regulate flow unless they are designed for it. Whenever fluid is forced against a partially closed gate, there will be a vibration, gradually eroding the disc and seat.

A knife gate valve works by allowing thick media to easily flow over soft seals with no interference. They work by chopping up the media as it passes through the valve. Today knife gate valves are used in numerous processing plants all over the world and come in large sizes.
