Steel industry and aluminum smelters

The use of knife gate valves in the steel industry is mostly related to water, clean or highly contaminated. The process water is used for the cooling, purification of process gases or as a part of steel processing, always purified and often recycled back into to the process.

The knife gates are facing different conditions, based on its purpose and type of process media. The MV valve is often used for control purposes or on/off just as the WB range. The slurry valves (SLV, SLF, SLH and SLX) are really useful when the pipeline carries highly abrasive process water where a normal valve will be worn out to fast.

In aluminum smelters MV have been successfully used as isolations or on/off valves in processes handling alumina in the pot feeding section and gas treatment centers.
