Valve for mining duties

ITT's  Fabri-Valve 33 PTA is designed to withstand harsh slurry applications and incorporates proprietary sleeve technology and a wide body design.The new valve features elastomeric seats which offer abrasion resistance and chemical compatibility. The seats form a pressure boundary, allowing for maintenance of gate and actuation while under pressure. The push-through seat design is self-cleaning and has low discharge. The 33 PTA is available in sizes ranging from 3 in to 24 in diameters (DN80-DN600) and are rated to operate at 100 psi (10.3 bar). "The 33 PTA adds to an already robust line of mining products, allowing us to better serve the mining industry," said Paul Lopez, global marketing manager for ITT Engineered Valves. "We now have 15 valve products for slurry applications.”
