Valves made especially for wastewater prevent clogging to 100% by providing a free flow through the valve. Good-quality valves extend service life. The valve closes every time the pump stops — thousands of times over many years.
GATE VALVE AND KNIFE GATE VALVE
Xylem supplies gate valves suitable for wastewater. They have 100% free flow through the valve to prevent clogging by solids in the water.
Good-quality valves ensure a long service life, with normal functioning even after many years of operation.
Knife gate valves have a short face-to-face length, e.g. for installation in tight spaces.
