This Polyurethane Knife Gate Valve line offers mining and mineral processing companies a solution to the abrasion and corrosion conditions that plague mid-service applications, while significantly increasing reliability and service life.
The two-piece body construction and field replaceable snap-in liner design provides more reliable sealing than competing products. An integral seat face seal eliminates the need for flange gaskets in many conventional flanged installations. This, along with an improved gland, will make the product particularly attractive to customers across the mining spectrum, from alumina to coal, copper, gold, silver and uranium.
The Clarkson SU10R urethane valves offer a number of other advantages over conventional metal seated valves. In addition to delivering superior abrasion resistance, the inherent resilience of the polyurethane material ensures tight shut-off to MSS-SP-81 standards. The valves are also truly bi-directional.
The Clarkson SU10R valves will initially be available in sizes ranging from 50mm up to 600mm and operate at 10 bar across the entire range at temperatures of up to 80°C.
Emerson has declared to offer its new Clarkson SU10R valve for customers across Australia, U.S. Latin America and China.
