| Valve Types:|
Expanding a versatile product offering, FNW offers fabricated slide and knife gate valves where special application requirements exist. The F-Series of valves include slide gate valves, metal to metal, and resilient seated knife gate valves. These valves can be configured with various metallurgy, connection types, sizes, pressure ratings, face-to-face dimensions, and actuators.
Fabricated Slide Gate Valve
The figure F150 features a heavy-duty fully fabricated construction with heavy-gauge body walls and steel-plate body flanges. With a high shearing capability, the F150 slide gate is ideally suited for services such as cyclone and trash applications. It is also ideal for dense solutions and wet or dry abrasives and solids. The valve seat face is protected by the gate when the valve is in the full open position, providing longer service life under adverse conditions.
Fabricated Metal Seated Knife Gate Valve
The figure F65/F67 fabricated knife gate valve is modeled after the figure 65B (with lockout lugs) and 67B (without lockout lugs) cast body valves. The F65/F67 is a metal to metal seated valve with uni-directional shut-off. The F65/F67 is ideal for dense mixtures of stock and slurries. The shearing action of the knife blade cuts through solids and cleans the seat as it closes.
