Knife Gate Valves

The Knife Gate Valve is designed for positive shut-off of all free-flowing bulk material. Often used under silos, bins, dust collector hoppers, feeders, and other conveying equipment to shut off flow.

Knife gate valves are great for dry powders, plastic pellets, granules, and slurry in addition to viscous, corrosive, and abrasive media.

Industries that utilize knife gate valves: Bulk Powders, Cement, Chemical, Fly Ash, Iron Ore, Lime, Mining and Minerals, Steel Mills, and more.

Construction materials: Mild steel, 304SS, 316SS, AR steel

To order: please specify the size, shape (round or square), construction material, and actuation type: manual or pneumatic cylinder.



A knife gate valve is a component that utilizes a blade to cut through thick heavy material whereas a slide gate valve is a component utilizing a slide plate in order to better manipulate or control the flow of dry bulk material.
