Rhinogate Slurry Isolation Knife Gate Valve
Exploded assembly view of the Rhinogate Knife Gate Valve

Overview

Engineered with easy interchangeability in mind, the Rhinogate knife gate valve consists of just 8 pieces and is extremely simple and easy to understand, operate, and maintain.
The one piece liner, gate and gland are sandwiched between two split body halves of ductile iron and is totally leak free and well enclosed in a neat package.
Its superior quality, solid construction and brilliant design, allows for the valve to be rebuilt on site, for only around 15% of the cost of a new valve.
A Rhinogate knife gate valve is considered an investment as the valve can go back into service, time and time again. The days of throw away valves have come to an end.

    THE HEART OF THE RHINOGATE

    The heart of the Rhinogate knife gate valve is its special once piece, field replaceable polyurethane liner.
    With its full bore design - fluid media is fully contained and does not come in contact with any other part of the body. Sealing of the gate is handled with-in the liners U shaped perimeter core - offering bi-directional operation and complete bubble tight down stream isolation. Its cavity free seat also eliminates pockets where slurry can build up and prevent the gate from closing. Built in "Double V" scrapers assist in scraping the gate clean, each time it is cycled and outside seal rings eliminate the need for flange gaskets when installing the Rhinogate in-line.
