ITT Engineered Valves Fabri-Valve 33 PTA

itt fabri-valve 33 ptaITT Engineered Valves introduces the Fabri-Valve 33 PTA push-through slurry valve. The valve is specifically designed to withstand harsh slurry applications in the mining industry.

It incorporates proprietary sleeve technology and a wide body design, which increases the valve’s life span in slurry applications.

The product has elastomeric seats that have been engineered to provide the highest degree of abrasion resistance and chemicals compatibility. The valve seats form a pressure boundary, allowing the gate and actuation to be maintained while under pressure, ultimately, reducing downtime.

The low discharge valve has a push-through seat design that is self-cleaning. The company reports that it takes operator safety into consideration when dealing with discharge valves by developing specific guidelines to increase safety awareness and assist customers in choosing the right valve for specific applications.

The 33 PTA is available in sizes ranging from 76 mm to 609 mm diameters and rated to operate at 1030 kPa.
