What are knife gate valves used for?
Knife gate valves are originally designed for paper industry. The knife gate valve is especially applicable for heavy liquids with solid particulates, like slurry liquid, that are most corrosive, erosive and abrasive.
Compared to wedge gate valve, the knife gate valve has a shorter end to end dimension and lighter weight. Plus, the knife valve has a more sharpened disc to cut through slurry and viscous medium. Both wedge gate valve and knife gate valve can only be used for on-off function not for regulating the flow.
