Two 18” and three 14” PEC Eccentric Plug Valves were removed from service after over 60 years on the Intake Structure to the Primary Clarifiers at a Water Treatment Plant in Omaha, Nebraska. These are now the PEC Eccentric Plug Valves with the longest recorded service life. Over the past 60 years, these valves handled flows of 12 to 15 MGD and were cycled a couple times each day. The valves were originally installed when this portion of the plant was built in the 1950’s. When removed, the valves were still in operation, used daily, and performing well. Since the facility needed to automate the valves, they decided it was a good opportunity to replace them with new, automated DeZURIK Eccentric Plug Valves.
In 2009, DeZURIK Eccentric Plug Valves were removed from the St. Cloud Water Treatment Plant after 53 years of service. At that time they were the oldest valves known to be in service.

DeZURIK KSL Slurry Knife Gate Valves, designed for on-off isolation service, are ideally suited for applications consisting of abrasive, high solids content, wet or dry media in the mining, power and aggregate industries.
Available in two styles, Long Body Design (KSL-LA) and Short Body Design (KSL-SD), DeZURIK Slurry Knife Gate Valves feature sleeves of natural rubber, EPDM or other elastomers that are compressed by sleeve retainers, allowing the valve to provide drip-tight shutoff and exceptional service life in abrasive and erosive applications.
Features of Slurry Knife Gate Valves include:
• Bi-directional, drip-tight shutoff to full pressure rating.
• Field replaceable sleeves with encapsulated supporting ring.
• Full port reduces turbulence and pressure drop across the valve.
• Sleeve compression eliminates cavity where solids can collect.
• Sleeve design eliminates the requirement for flange gaskets.
• Gate fully retracts out of the flow path in the open position.
• Optional open and closed position lock-outs.
DeZURIK Slurry Knife Gate Valves are available in sizes 2-24" (50-600mm) with larger sizes available on application. Temperature ratings to 177°F (81°C) as standard, and up to 300°F (150°C) with high temperature optional seat materials. Depending on the application requirements, the cast body is available in Ductile Iron, Carbon Steel and various Stainless Steel or higher alloy materials.
