SARTELL, Minnesota – DeZurik’s new Knife Gate Valve Selection Guide is designed to assist users with the valve selection process. The guide helps users navigate DeZurik's broad knife gate valve product range based on general specification requirements, common media and applications by industry.
Specific industry applications included in the guide are for mining and mineral processing; municipal water/wastewater; hydro dams; power; pulp and paper; chemical and petrochemical; and food and beverage.
Within the selection chart, the guide uses five colour coded ratings to categorize each valve style’s general usage in a particular application: not used, limited application, may be used, typical application and maximum performance. The chart considers both cost and performance factors for each specific application when determining its rating. The maximum performance rating is assigned to the valve style that will usually provide the best performance and the lowest cost of ownership in a particular application.
The selection guide is posted on DeZurik’s public web site on the "Bulletins" page under the “General” category DeZurik.com/Bulletins/. Printed copies may be requested from your local DeZurik representative.
