KS - Uni/Bi-directional knife gate valve

VAYCOM Valves & Components

VAYCOM’S KS series knife gate has a monoblock cast body. It has a wafer design for installation between flanges. The standard model is for DIN PN10 and ANSI150 flanges; others are available on request. Different interchangeable closure rings due to the unique innovative machining. The slide is guided, and will thus be affected less by normal opening and closing operations. The gate is made of stainless steel polished, and the edges are rounded to extend the life of seals and gaskets. 2-in-1 valve; works up to 80% in the less favourable direction.
