Dual Valves Australasia has recently completed the supply of 25 bar rated polyurethane-lined knife gate valves in a first for the company in Australia.
“The years of experience that DUAL Products has in using polyurethane compounds within their slurry valves allowed us to expand the range of one piece cast poly lined knife gate valves to now include a 25 Bar CWP rated version. “Previously we only offered these units rated up to 10 Bar CWP, but we now can offer these valves as standard for the first time in Australia, and the first contract to supply 25 Bar rated DN250’s has just been completed a few weeks ago”, revealed Justin Mirto.
Dual Products manufactures these valves to MSS-SP-81 face-to-face dimensions, and they feature repeatable bi-directional 100% drip tight shut-off, with the full port moulded polyurethane liner bonded to the single piece cast steel valve body giving extended service life over standard knife gate valves – especially in tailings and fly ash applications. The valve tower features provision for inductive proximity switches to be fitted without modifications required to the tower superstructure.
The valves are available with options for different methods of actuation, materials of construction and drilling patterns to suit different applications.
