Slurry Handling

Red Valve's Knife Gate Valves are the perfect compliment to our broad range of slurry handling products.  All Red Valve knife gate valves are designed and engineered to a higher standard, to provide the best performance possible.  Standard features such as precision-machines gates, heavy-duty topworks and cast-iron bodies up to 24" make the valves rugged and dependable.  Other features such as replaceable wear seats, simplified packing replacement or solid stainless steel linings make the valves affordable and easy to maintain.

Red Valve offers two distinct knife gate styles to best match our customer's requirements of cost and performance.  The Series G is a traditional all-metal knife gate, featuring a metal or resilient seat.  Since all wetted parts are solid stainless steel, the Series G performs like an all-stainless valve at a fraction of the cost.  The Flexgate Slurry Knife Gate features two replaceable elastomer cartridge seats that acts as the sealing and wear surface of the valve.  Ideal for abrasive slurries, the seats can be easily replaced when worn.  The Flexgate creates a bi-directional seal and features an innovative inverted packing box design.
