Clarkson KGA Heavy Duty Slurry Knife Gate Valve

3" to 60"

Field-proven Clarkson KGA slurry knife gate valves


feature heavy-duty, full port elastomer linings offering
the ultimate in protection against heavy slurries.
Features
Meets a wide range of abrasion,
corrosion, temperature, and pressure
requirements.
May be used in wet or dry services
easily dealing with large, heavy
particles and tramp material.
Heavy-duty, field replaceable
elastomer sleeves with internal
stiffener (U. S. patent 5,271,426).
No metal parts in contact with the
flowing slurry.
Unobstructed flow eliminates
turbulence, minimizes pressure
drop across valve.
100% isolation; bubble-tight
shut-off results in absolutely zero
downstream leakage.
Double-seated design provides
bi-directional flow and shut-off.
No seat cavity where solids can
collect and prevent full gate closure.
No gate or stem packing is required,
eliminating packing leakage and
maintenance.
Adaptable frame (yoke) design
featuring a top-removal stem nut.

3" to 60"

Features

Sleeve Configurations

How the KGA sleeves work: Matching


sleeves are placed in the KGA valve housing
to seal against the gate when the valve is
closed and seal against each other when the
valve is open. As the gate moves from open
to closed position, it separates the facing
sleeves. A stiffener ring molded into the

elastomer retains the roundness of the


sleeves during opening and closing cycles.
The unique KGA sleeve assembly provides
positive sealing action when the valve gate
is closed. When the gate is open, the
sleeves provide an unobstructed port and
protect metal parts from the flowing slurry.

Open Position:

Closed Position:

Gate positioned above seals.

Gate travels through sleeves to provide


blind flange shut-off and expel solids.

Metal parts not in contact with slurry.


Unobstructed port area designed to
eliminate turbulence, minimizes
pressure drop across valve.
No seat cavity where solids can collect
and prevent full gate closure.

Encapsulated Internal Stiffener Ring


Maintains round configuration of sleeve.
Relieves stresses on seal.

100% isolation bubble-tight shut-off


helps result in zero downstream
leakage.
Double-seated design provides
bi-directional flow and shut-off.
Controlled stroke helps prevent gate
from penetrating too far, minimizing
stress on sleeve.

Available Sleeve Materials:

Features
Heavy-duty frame (yoke) designed to
accept top removal stem nut, bevel gear
or cylinder actuator.

Natural Rubber: This category includes


all natural gum elastomers and synthetic
Polyisoprene. Advantages High tensile
strength, superior resistance to tear and
abrasion and good flexibility at low
temperatures. Limitations Poor resistance
to ozone, acids and most hydrocarbon fuels
and greases. Maximum continuous operating
temperature, 160F.

Optional open and closed lockout/tagout


positions.
The stainless steel gate is completely
withdrawn from the process flow in the open
position and can be inspected or replaced
without taking the valve out of service.

EPDM-HTP and EPDM: Advantages Both


types have excellent weatherability, very good
flexibility at low temperature, good resistance
to alkalis, acids, alcohols, ketones, glycols
and oxygenated solvents, superior resistance
to water and steam. Limitations Poor
resistance to hydrocarbon fuels, mineral-oilbased-fluids and greases and synthetic
hydrocarbon lubricants. Maximum continuous
operating temperature, EPDM 300F.

316 stainless steel gate is standard.


Packingless design.
Elastomer sleeve molded with an integral
stiffener ring to properly center the sleeve
in the valve body housing and resist the
high shearing forces present when the
gate cycles.

CSM (Chlorosulphonated polyethylene):


Advantages Good abrasion resistance,
excellent resistance to many corrosive and
oxidizing chemicals, moderate resistance to
oil and gasoline. Limitations Poor resistance
to aromatic solvents, ketones, esters, limited
flexibility at low temperature. Maximum
continuous operating temperature, 200F.

Unobstructed flow area, fully lined with


elastomer sleeves, no metal-to-metal
contact, no guides or wedges.
Double sleeved design provides a blind
flange shut-off when the gate is closed.
The valves sealing surface is between two
thick, rubber sleeves that are compressed
into the ductile iron valve housings.

Chlorobutyl: Advantages Outstanding


impermeability to gases and vapor, very
good resistance to heat, oxygen, ozone and
sunlight. Excellent energy absorption and
resistance to alkalis and oxygenated
solvents, superior resistance to water and

Cast ductile full flanged body housing to
suit ANSI B16.5/150 through 24", sizes 26"
and larger suit MSS-SP44.

Mild steel body spacers separate the body


housings and serve as an external guide
to the valves knife-edge gate.
Clean-out area.

Specification
Clarkson KGA Slurry Knife Gate Valve
Heavy duty, slurry knife gate valve shall be flat-face flanged, packingless, rubber-lined,
bi-directional valve suitable for a wide range of industrial applications. The full port design
shall have no internal obstructions and will provide a blind flange shut-off when the gate
is closed. The valves sealing surface is to be between two thick, rubber sleeves that are
compressed into the valve housings. The sleeve will be molded with an internal stiffener
ring that locates the sleeve in the valve housing and helps the sleeves resist the high
shearing forces present when the gate is driven between them. Mild steel body spacers
shall separate the body housings and serve as an external guide to the valves knife-edge
gate. The stainless steel gate shall be completely withdrawn from the process flow when in
the open position, and can be inspected and replaced, if necessary, without taking the
valve out of service. When the valve is in the closed position, the downstream sleeve can
be replaced while the upstream portion of the valve is still holding pressure. The valve
body housing to be full flanged, drilled and tapped or slotted to suit ANSI B16.5/150
through 24" and MSS-SP44 above 24". Valve is equipped with a heavy steel fabricated
handwheel frame (yoke) which can be converted to bevel gear in the field, complete with a
304 stainless steel rising stem (except cylinder actuated valves). All nonferrous exterior
surfaces shall be painted to factory standard. Specify Clarkson KGA slurry knife gate valve
