Flowrox PVG valve now available with pneumatic actuator

Published by
World Cement,

The Flowrox PVG valve for heavy-duty processes is now available with a pneumatic actuator. The automatic PVG is a robust pinch valve for shut-off applications that can be connected to the pneumatic system of the plant. It is also available with manual actuator.

The PVG valve operates reliably even in the most demanding process conditions and has a full bore structure, bubble tight shut-off and long service lifetime. The inside sleeve is the only replaceable part and it is naturally resistant to any scaling, which breaks away when the valve is closed. It also includes opening tags to ensure that the valve opens even after a long period of time.

The PVG is developed for processes involving abrasion, corrosion and aggressive slurries. It is a reliable isolation valve for heavy duty processes, especially for tanks, thickeners, pump isolation, process pipelines, measuring devices and sampling systems.

Process benefits:

  • Reliable operation.
  • Opening tags in the sleeve.
  • No jamming or clogging.
  • Breaks any possible scaling when closed.
  • Full bore design: free flow of the medium, least pumping energy required.
  • Low maintenance costs.
  • Long service intervals.
  • Reduced total cost of ownership.
