New Slurry Knife Gate Valve Available from DeZURIK (Read More)

DeZURIK’s new KSL Slurry Knife Gate Valves are designed for on-off (isolation) service for applications consisting of abrasive, high solids content, wet or dry media. KSL-LA Slurry Knife Gate Valves are ideally suited for applications in the mining, power, and aggregate industries. 

The KSL-LA Slurry Valve features sleeves of natural rubber or other elastomers that are compressed by sleeve retainers. The sleeves have an encapsulated supporting ring for long service life, and the valve’s sleeve compression design eliminates the cavity where solids can collect.

The sleeve design of the KSL Slurry Valve provides bi-directional, drip tight shutoff up the valve’s 100 psi (690 kPa) pressure rating. The valve has a full port, which reduces turbulence and pressure drop across the valve. In addition, the gate fully retracts out of the flow path in the open position.
