Industrial Valve for Processing Abrasive and Corrosive Substances

November 21, 2013

Flowrox PVG valve for processing abrasive and corrosive substancesFlowrox, a global leader in heavy-duty industrial valve manufacturing and service, is launching a new pinch valve product designed to enhance current pipeline equipment and processes using the latest technology in fluid control. The new PVG valve from Flowrox was developed for use in the oil & gas, mining, minerals and metallurgy and wastewater industries — particularly where abrasive or corrosive slurries, powders or coarse substances are processed. Based on three decades of experience and strong understanding of industrial fluid control, Flowrox has engineered its PVG valve at full bore with no flow restrictions, allowing processes with abrasive or corrosive fluids — such as lime slurry or mineral slurries. The main benefit to a full bore design is that the PVG valve itself becomes an integral part of the pipe and is able to process the same fluids in the harshest of conditions.
