PULP AND PAPER
PARAVALVES knife gate valves are the ideal solution for the pulp and paper industry.
At PARAVALVES, every product is carefully engineered as all the neccesary parameters are studied to develop our solid and reliable knife gate valves.
Though conduit knife gate valves are specially made for the pulp and paper industry, for pulp outlets or under silo applications. The design allows flow media with high consistency either for normal or reverse flow due to the bi-directional double seat design. The high flow coefficient value of this knife gate valve provides high flow rates with low pressure drops.
The two-piece construction bolted body retains a gate that contains a round openning inside that is able to cut the flow for the required charged liquid applications. When the opening of the gate is aligned with the opening of the split-bodies, the valve is opened. The gate closing principle is similar to the functioning of a «cigar cutter».
Installation of this equipment is done between pipeline flanges, which flange drilling can be made according to customer specifications or PARAVALVES standard. Face to face determines the distance between flanges and this can also be taylor-made to comply with customer project. ButtWelding ends can also be supplied on request.
K240 THROUGH CONDUIT KNIFE GATE VALVES series are divided in different types depending on the design pressure. K241 model is reffered to standard design with differential pressures from 2bar to 10bar depending on valve size (see section below). K242 model shall be selected for higher design pressures up to 10bar for all sizes up to DN800. Different materials are available such as carbon steel or many stainless steel grades according to required application.
