The Knife Gate Valve: The Basics

Posted by Tom Hobson on Jan 3, 2012 11:20:23 AM

Space is often at a premium in industrial operations. Expansion is costly, and it can be hard to re-work an old system to fit new requirements. The Knife Gate Valve is a boon to those who seek cost efficiency through space-saving measures. The Knife Gate Valve’s principle is simple: stop the flow of material by blocking its path. Whether operated manually or by pneumatic assembly, the Knife Gate Valve gives the user options on how and when to control a flow of material. Knife Gate Valves are often used at the end of a process, where they are used to control the discharge of material. Perfect for discharging materials or controlling material flow, the Knife Gate Valve is a valuable addition to almost any kind of bulk handling system.
