Slide gate valve
Slide gate valves are designed to shut off the flow of product or for flow adjustments from outlets of dry bulk storage bins, silos, conveyors and other discharge points. These can be operated manually, pneumatically or electrically based on the demand of application. Blade seals are selected according to the material being handled and are available to suit any application.
The Slide Gate Valve is a testament to simplicity in design and efficiency in function. At its core is a gate, often flat or rectangular, that undergoes linear motion along the axis of fluid flow. This distinctive design allows for seamless modulation of fluid passage. Whether fully open to enable unobstructed flow or closed to create a secure seal, the Slide Gate Valve's linear motion design offers a precise and reliable means of regulating the movement of liquids or gases.
The actuation mechanism of the slide gate valve is equally straightforward. In smaller valves, manual operation is achieved through a handwheel, providing operators with direct control over the positioning of the gate. For larger industrial applications, the valve incorporates more sophisticated actuation methods, such as electric, pneumatic, or hydraulic systems, allowing for precise and automated control.

- Bulk Material Handling: In industries dealing with bulk materials – be it grains, powders, or granules – the slide gate valve regulates the discharge from silos, hoppers, or bins. Its ability to provide controlled and efficient material handling is crucial in these settings.
- Water Treatment Plants: Water treatment facilities rely on slide gate valves to control the flow of water, chemicals, or sludge. The precision offered by these valves ensures the effectiveness of water treatment processes.
- Process Industries: Various manufacturing processes necessitate precise control over fluid flow. Slide gate valves find applications in industries such as pharmaceuticals, petrochemicals, and food processing, where accurate modulation of flow rates is imperative.
