Pneumatic Knife Gate Valve
Heavily loaded devices with a solid frame, knife gate, loading box with packing, large air cylinder, and hand-operated crank are the distinguishing characteristics of the GMK Pneumatic Knife Gate Valve. The blades of a GMK Knife gate valve are often sharpened so that they can cut through thick liquids. These valves are intended to operate in some of the most severe situations imaginable. They are particularly helpful in water remediation where rust is a significant problem since they are resistant to it. Therefore, besides having a valve design that is adapted for slurry media, it is advantageous to have a knife manufactured of acid-proof stainless steel. This helps make the knife less vulnerable to corrosion resulting from corrosion, which in turn results in it requiring fewer regular inspections or indeed backup.
