GATE VALVE - HOW IT WORKS

See here the inner mechanism:

A swivel arm turns for 180° and moves the mechanism from open to closed position. Two rollers perform the move of the valve plate in the Z-axis. All this run without any sliding friction, rolling only. The moving partners for this Z-axis are thin sheet in stainless steel with open distance to each other which makes this mechanism very insensitive against any dust and dirt coming from the customer's installation.

Most of the parts are made in lasercutted stainless steel. This allows to equip the valve with a great principle of actuation, but keep the prices inexpensive.

The mechanism is track-guided over the whole stroke from full open to full closed. This principle is patented in the most important industrial countries. Before we have started the new GATE Valve we have produced and tested this principle in many different sizes and we have tested the valve for 1 million cycles (HV version) and 200,000 cycles (UHV version).
