Weir Valves & Controls USA: Atwood & Morrill Forged Gate Valve

Weir Atwood Morrill Forged Gate ValveWeir Valves & Controls USA Inc. (WVC USA) is pleased to announce the introduction of the Atwood & Morrill Forged Gate Valve. WVC USA recently manufactured four forged valves that were ordered for installation at a new-build combined cycle plant in the Southeast U.S. - scheduled to go online in 2019.

Customers of combined cycle power plants have indicated that Type 91 gate valves have been experiencing shorter than anticipated life cycles. These valve bodies are traditionally cast in A217 C12A material. Based on customer feedback and industry research, WVC USA put together a dedicated project team to develop a product designed to tackle this specific customer problem. Forged valve bodies help minimize material defects and provide better quality and longer life valves, especially at elevated temperatures with thermal cycling conditions.

Mueller Water Products: Class 250/300 Resilient Wedge Gate Valves

Mueller Class 250300 Resilient Wedge Gate ValvesThe expansion of Mueller’s 350psi, AWWA/UL/FM rated resilient wedge gate valve (RWGV) product line with new end design conforms to the ASME/ANSI dimensional requirements for Class 250/300 valves. Specifically, the flange and lay length (end-to-end) of the new Class 250/300 RWGV complies with ASME/ANSI B16.1, B16.42, B16.10, and PN25 drilling standards. This ductile iron valve is available in standard sizes from 3 to 12 inches, complies with the requirements of AWWA C509/C515 and NSF 61/372, and retains all competitive features of other 350psi rated RWGVs including integrated lift lugs, a self-activating wedge seal and grade 316 stainless steel fasteners.

Typical applications include mechanical rooms of high-rise buildings, pump stations, reservoirs, and water processing facilities that operate at higher pressures. Class 250/300 RWGVs are available in non-rising stem (NRS), post indicating (PI), and outside screw & yoke (OS&Y) configurations, in both Mueller® and U.S. Pipe Valve & Hydrant® brands.

Victaulic: Refuse-to-Fuse Series 906 KGV

Victaulic Refuse to Fuse Series 906 Knife Gate ValveVictaulic has launched its new Refuse-to-Fuse™ Series 906 Knife Gate Valve (906 KGV), the industry's first in-line maintenance KGV for HDPE pipe. The new valve simplifies installation and maintenance, reduces downtime and improves worker safety.

The 906 KGV for HDPE pipe is ideal for fluid lines containing solids or abrasive materials common in mining, wastewater treatment, power generation and other industrial settings with applications such as slurry and tailings lines or cyclones.

The new valve also improves worker safety because only one component has to be replaced versus removing the entire valve from the pipeline. This first-of-its-kind, revolutionary design eliminates the need for rigging with heavy chains and pulleys swinging over the heads of maintenance crews.

DFT: Model TLW Axial Flow Wafer Check Valve

DFT Model TLW Axial Flow Wafer Check ValveDFT Inc. releases its new TLW® Check Valve, a Tapped Lug Wafer style silent check valve specifically designed for use in horizontal and vertical installations for liquid, gas, and steam applications where exposed bolts are not suitable.

This check valve was designed for use in a refining industry application but is relevant for any industry where bolts are required not be exposed to fire or corrosion. As with all other DFT check valves, this silent check valve reduces the potential for reverse flow and water hammer and is designed for long life and low maintenance.

Standard trim materials include a stainless-steel seat, disc, and bushing (optional soft seat seal available). The valve can be installed either horizontally or vertically and is compatible with steam, water, and gaseous media. Custom sizing is available for low flow applications. 

Emerson: Clarkson SU10R Knife Gate Valve

Emerson Clarkson SU10REmerson has launched a new line of reliable, high-performance knife gate valves designed specifically to meet the needs of customers in challenging mid-service mining applications.

The new Clarkson SU10R polyurethane knife gate valve line is available in the United States and offers mining and mineral processing companies a solution to the abrasion and corrosion conditions that plague mid-service applications, while significantly increasing reliability and service life.

The two-piece body construction and field replaceable snap-in liner design provides more reliable sealing than competing products. An integral seat face seal eliminates the need for flange gaskets in many conventional flanged installations. This, along with an improved gland, will make the product particularly attractive to customers across the mining spectrum, from alumina to coal, copper, gold, silver and uranium.
