Commonly used control valves, such as dart valves or pinch valves, pose several challenges to flotation cell efficiency. Due to their substantial size, they often have elevated capital/operating costs and energy consumption. In certain designs, where a dart valve is located inside the tank, the physical space consumed by the valve can impact fluid dynamics and increase the overall footprint of the flotation cell.
SlurryFlo control valves are manufactured with the shortest face-to-face dimensions
on the market. By installing
our valves immediately outside the tank, the tank's diameter can be reduced, while minimizing the distance required between cells. As a result, the multi-stage flotation system footprint can be condensed
when utilizing our technology.
