What is a Knife Gate Valve?
A knife gate valve is also known as a knife gate, knife valve, knife slide gate valve, slurry valve, or mud valve, its opening and closing member is the gate, and the direction of movement of the gate is perpendicular to the direction of the fluid, by the knife blade gate can cut the fiber material to cut off the medium.
The gate has two sealing surfaces, the most commonly used mode gate valve two sealing surfaces to form a wedge, wedge angle varies with the parameters of the valve, usually 5 °, wedge-type knife gate valve gate can be made into a whole, called rigid gate;
The knife gate valve can also be made into a micro-deformation of the gate, in order to improve its craft, to make up for the angle of the sealing surface in the process of deviation, this gate is called the resilient gate.
The valve body does not actually exist in the chamber, the gate is lifted in the side guide groove and pressed against the seat by the bottom lug, if high media sealing is required, the O-seal seat can be used to achieve a two-way seal.
Knife gate valves have a smaller installation space, low working pressure, are less likely to accumulate debris, and are less expensive.
The knife gate valve is closed, the sealing surface can only rely on media pressure to seal, that is, rely on media pressure will be the sealing surface of the gate to the other side of the seat to ensure the sealing surface of the seal, which is self-sealing.
Most of the gate valves are forced to seal, that is, when the valve is closed, rely on external force to force the gate to the seat, to ensure the sealing surface of the seal. This type of valve in the pipeline should generally be installed vertically.
A knife gate valve is a slide gate valve device used in the fields of coal selection, gangue discharge, slag discharge, and urban sewage treatment in mining and power plants. The knife gate valves have a manual type, pneumatic type, and motorized/electric type for choosable.
The knife gate valves are used for a wide range of applications such as pulp and paper, chemical, petrochemical, power, mining, wastewater, and more.
They are used as isolation/on-off valves in the toughest corrosive, abrasive liquid, slurry, or dry material applications.
