  • Specifications

Knife valve also known as knife gate valve, slurry valve, mud valve, its opening and closing parts are blade-shaped disc, the movement direction of the disc is perpendicular to the direction of the fluid, and the medium is cut by a blade-shaped disc that can cut fibre material. 

The knife valve body does not actually exist chamber, the disc rise and fall in the side guide groove, and is pressed against the knife gate valve seat by the lug at the bottom, if you need to achieve a high medium sealing, can choose O-ring seal valve seat to achieve two-way sealing. The knife valve has characteristics of smaller installation space, low working pressure, less likely to accumulate debris and are less expensive.

When the knife valve is closed, the sealing surface can only rely on the media pressure to seal, that is, rely on the media pressure to press the sealing surface of the blade-shaped disc to the knife gate valve seat on another side to ensure the seal of sealing surface, this is self-sealing, most of the gate valve is used for mandatory sealing, that is, when the knife valve is closed, to rely on external forces to force the disc pressed to the valve seat to ensure the seal of sealing surface. This kind of valve generally should be installed vertically in the pipeline.
