Orbinox Series 21 Knife Gate Valve photoOrbinox Series 21 Knife Gate Valve

The BT heavy duty knife gate is a bi-directional lug type valve designed according to MSS-SP-81 and TAPPI TIS 405-8 for industrial service applications. The design of the body and seat assures non-clogging shut off on suspended solids in industries such as:

  • Pulp and Paper Power plants
  • Mining
  • Chemical plants
  • Wastewater
  • Food and Beverage
  • Sizes: DN 2"/50 to DN 24"/600 (larger diameters on request)
  • Working pressure: DN 2"/50 to DN 24"/600:150psi / 10kg/cm2
  • Standard flange connection: ANSI B16.5 (class 150) Others on request

BODY: One piece integrally cast stainless steel body with reinforced ribs in larger diameters for extra body strength. Internal cast guides allows for tighter shutoff. Port design according to MSS-SP-81 and Tappi TIS 405-8. Internal design avoids any build up of solids that could prevent valve from closing.

GATE: Standard AISI 316 stainless steel gate. Gates polished and lapped for a greater seal between the gate and both the packing and seat.

SEAT: (resilient) Retained in the valve body internal groove by its trapezoidal shape. Standard EPDM; also available in different materials such as Viton, nitrile, etc.

PACKING: Standard braided PTFE impregnated fibre with EPDM o-ring for better shut off, with an easy access packing gland ensuring a tight seal Long-life braided packing is available in a wide range of materials.

STEM: The standard stainless steel stem offers a long corrosion resistant life. For rising stem handwheel actuators only, a stem protector is provided for additional protection against dust while the valve is in the open position.

ACTUATORS: All actuators supplied by ORBINOX are interchangeable, and supplied with an standard mounting kit to allow for installation on site.

YOKE or ACTUATOR SUPPORT: Made of EPOXY coated steel (stainless steel available on request). Compact design makes it extremely robust even under the most severe conditions.

EPOXY COATING: The epoxy coating on all ORBINOX cast iron and carbon steel valve bodies and components is electrostatically applied making them corrosion resistant with a high quality finished surface. The ORBINOX standard colour is RAL-5015 blue.
