Flowrox has launched a new pinch valve product designed to enhance current pipeline equipment and processes using the latest technology in fluid control.
Its new PVG valve was developed for use in the oil and gas, mining, minerals and metallurgy and waste water industries, particularly where abrasive or corrosive slurries, powders or coarse substances are processed.
The company 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.
In addition to its strength and resistance to aggressive slurries, Flowrox's new PVG valve is designed as a full port fluid control device that allows a more efficient process, requiring less pumping energy.
The reduction of head pressure is another benefit offered by the PVG valve, which helps reduce pump costs and eliminates unnecessary turbulence in pipelines handling abrasive slurries.
Flowrox is actively marketing the PVG valve to all major municipalities and power plants in North America managing fluid control processes that require precision and performance directly related to revenue generation.
"Our PVG valve offers great in-field flexibility as it can be easily replaced on-site without major delays in operation," said Anthony Clark, vice president of sales.
"Add to that its guaranteed long operational lifetime and we have a product our clients can depend on when they need it most."
