Knife Gate Valve (GKL)

Knife gate valves are designed for top performance and a long maintenance-free lifetime. The stainless steel Knife is precision–buffed for tight shut-off. Its knife–like edge cuts through heavy or highly viscous fluids. Knife edges are machine chamfered to reduce packing wear. The brass stem nut makes opening & closing the valve smooth and speedy with low torque requirements. A knife valve can be installed between two pipe flanges as wafer type and lug type and can be used in different industries. Because of the special design, the least contact would occur between moveable parts and the body. The gate moves upward and downward through layers of packing without any touching the body and never collect any heavy viscous fluids or pulverized material and powder on the blade. The knife valve can tolerate heat expansion as hot fluid pass through. Knife valves can be installed at the end of the pipeline as a lug. Sealing is Uni-directional acc. to body marking.
