DeZURIK’s new KGC-BD Bi-Directional Resilient Seated Knife Gate Valve features a unique, patented perimeter seat design that provides bubble-tight shutoff in either direction, even on dead end service.
The KGC-BD Bi-Directional Knife Gate Valve combines a one-piece rubber molded seat with an insert, a spline and a puck that work together to lock the seat securely into the valve body. This unique seat design prevents buckling or dislodging that can occur with other perimeter seat designs.
In addition, the KGC-BD features the exclusive premium packing system that includes high performance packing material options and anti-extrusion segments. Available in sizes 2-36" (50-900mm) in a variety to materials, the KGC Bi-Directional valve provides improved sealing, extended packing life and reduced maintenance.
The valve is designed for isolation and on/off applications in the paper, chemical, mining, power and waste water industries. It is designed to handle clean, dirty, viscous and corrosive liquids, sludge, fibrous slurries, clean and corrosive gases.
