8" pinch control Valve
This Australian client had selected pinch valves to regulate discharge on their cyclone separators. As the slurry is highly abrasive, the maintenance group were required to replace all pinch valve sleeves every seven days. With the need for multiple cyclones on site, the costs associated with replacement parts, labour, weekly downtime and lost production were significant.
$3,500/Sleeve (+ Downtime + Labour)
