The new Isogate WS Series valve sleeves incorporate Linatex wear resistant technology and is designed using Weir Minerals’ extensive experience of slurry knife gate valve applications. The WS Series valve with its fully interchangeable, one-piece design with integral load distribution rings eliminates the need for multiple pieces and fasteners to make sleeve replacement much easier.
In addition to the new valve sleeves, some of the features of the patented WS Series valve include: a unibody design and rugged heavy-duty construction, ensuring long valve life and greater reliability; complete bubble-tight bi-directional shut-off with no downstream leakage; wear parts that are easily field replaceable; full port design to reduce pressure drop and downstream turbulence; no seat cavity for solids to accumulate and prevent full gate closure; and a universal top plate which can be field adapted to accept any offered actuator.
