Knife Gate Valve vs. SlurryFlo Control Valve

Trick or Treat 🎃

Don't be TRICKED into using standard knife gate valves to modulate abrasive fluid. TREAT your application to the world’s only linear control valve that is engineered (and patented) to provide unparalleled control and wear protection in these scary situations.

In this lithium mining application, the original knife gate valve suffered severe erosion and required replacement every month.

The customer installed a SlurryFlo linear control valve, which has been in service for 6 months and counting. Impressed by our technology, the lithium mine is now standardizing on SlurryFlo control valves to improve process control, while simultaneously reducing costs associated with downtime and maintenance.
