ITT”s Fabri-Valve SV1 push-through slurry valve features the company”s patent-pending Guillotine Gate technology. Unlike traditional knife-gate valves, the push-through slurry valve features a gate design that slices through high-density slurry at an angle, cleanly moving through tough slurries to prevent the seat from cutting and tearing, while also reducing the amount of discharge from the valve. The valve is designed specifically to meet the needs of mine operators who process heavy slurries and deal with high maintenance costs and downtime concerns. The valve is available in sizes ranging from three-inch to 24-inch diameters (DN80 – DN600). All sizes can operate at 150 PSI (pounds per square inch) of working pressure, up to 170 F. The Design features a positive bidirectional shutoff that allows zero downstream leakage, and the shutoff performance is not affected by low pressure.
