Lancaster, PA - ITT Engineered Valves today introduced the latest
innovation, the Fabri-Valve® 33 PTD push-through slurry valve. Designed with proprietary
technology to meet the harsh demands of light to medium slurry applications, the 33 PTD has out
performed other slurry valves used in the industry in both field trials and the laboratory. It is
most suitable for copper, gold, silver, or phosphate.
Paul Lopez, Global Marketing Manager for ITT Engineered Valves said “the 33 PTD meets the
needs of plant operators whose focus is to maximize plant output and lower operating costs.”
The handling of slurries causes unplanned downtime which leads to high maintenance costs.
The 33 PTD has been specifically engineered to solve those problems.
“With this new addition, we now have 14 valve products for slurry applications for our customer
to choose from. Our 60 years of experience in the development, design, manufacture, installation
and automation of knife gate valves sets us apart from others in the industry.” Lopez added.
The 33 PTD incorporates a proprietary UHMW Gate Support Liner which provides smooth gate
operation and alignment while eliminating body wear. The elastomeric seats have beenengineered to provide the highest degree of abrasion resistance and chemical compatibility. The valve seats form a pressure boundary allowing for maintenance of gate and actuation while under pressure minimizing downtime.
Unlike other slurry valves in the industry the 33 PTD is designed with dead end service
capability. The push-through seat design is self cleaning and has low discharge.
The 33 PTD is available in sizes ranging from 3" through 24" diameters (DN80 – DN600). Sizes
3-16" (DN 80-400) operate at 150 psi (10.3 bar) and up to 180°F (82°C). Sizes 18-24" (DN 450-
600) operate at 90 psi (6.2 bar) of working pressure and up to 180°F (82°C). It is competitively
priced and available from authorized ITT Fabri-Valve distributors.
