ITT Engineered Valves Delivering high quality, innovative flow control solutions for Abrasive Wear Resistance, Corrosion Resistance, and Critical/Hazardous Containment in a wide range of industries worldwide.
Fabri-Valve® SV1 Slurry Valve with new Guillotine GateTM design to provide longer life and lower maintenance. Mining and mineral processing plant operators can choose a longer lasting, lower maintenance valve for controlling heavy slurries, as ITT introduced a valve design that incorporates the unique patent-pending Guillotine GateTM. Unlike traditional knife gate valves, the Fabri-Valve SV1 push-through slurry valve features a gate design that slices through high density slurry at an angle. The gate slices cleanly through tough slurries and prevents the seat from cutting and tearing, while also reducing the amount of discharge from the valve. In service at a manufacturer of phosphoric acid – a demanding application where valves must cut through heavy scaling and withstand abrasive acid washes – the SV1 demonstrated far superior durability compared to competing knife gate valves. Three key features combine to make the SV1 more durable, with less maintenance than competitive push-through slurry valves. Along with slicing through slurries more efficiently, these features prevent seat damage, which is a common issue with many push-through slurry valves. 1. Guillotine Gate. The angled-cut guillotine gate design slices through media the way that an angled knife would cleanly slice through a tomato, rather than simply pushing through and squishing the seats as a dull, flat knife would do to a tomato. 2. Gate support liner. The slick plastic Ultra-High Molecular Weight (UHMW) Polyethylene gate support liners within the SV1 guide the gate through the entire stroke, shielding the body of the valve from direct contact with the media, while reducing downstream gate deflection and preventing the gate from cutting the seat. Seat protection is key in reducing downtime on slurry valves. Seat damage is a common issue with many pushthrough slurry valves, leading to a seat replacement or whole valve replacement to fix the problem. 3. Seat. The proprietary engineered polymer seats reduce friction and also increase seat life, particularly in high solid slurries. The Fabri-Valve SV1’s resilient material requires no lubrication, which saves tremendously Winter 2009
on maintenance costs. Even valves that claim to selflubricate, as opposed to those that need to be manually lubricated, can create maintenance troubles because lubrication can trap particles, and gritty lubrication can eventually affect valve operation. The SV1 is designed for easy installation and maintenance. The gate can be completely removed and replaced while the valve is under pressure, actuation can be changed in the field, and valves with manual operators or double acting air cylinders have self-supporting yokes providing valve orientation flexibility. Fabri-Valve Product Manager Grant Harlow explained that ITT designed the SV1 specifically to meet the needs of mine operators who process heavy slurries and deal with high maintenance costs and downtime concerns of their slurry valves. “Our goal with the SV1 was to make a valve that basically takes care of itself. SV1 lowers the time and money spent on maintenance, and allows mine operators to focus on production without worrying about valve failure,” Harlow said. “Along with improving uptime, we also have made maintenance and replacement easy when the need arises.” The SV1 is available in sizes ranging from 3” through 24” diameters (DN80 – DN600). All sizes can operate at 150 psi (pounds per square inch) of working pressure, and up to 170°F (77°C). The SV1 is designed with positive bi-directional shutoff that allows zero downstream leakage, and the shutoff performance is not affected by low pressure. Other standard features include dead end service capability, mechanical lock-out in the open or closed position, and discharge equal or less than competitors. Fabri-Valve SV1’s are competitively priced, and are available from authorized ITT Fabri-Valve distributors. To learn more or to obtain technical specifications, please call your F.W. Webb representative.

New Energy Savings Calculator Legris Transair has developed an energy calculator that enables system designers to determine savings made by using Transair in comparison to steel systems. Contractor/end users can immediately calculate the potential saving. On the basis of compressor related data such as pressure, flow rate, annual hours of operation, the type of dryer and data from the characteristics of the network and the local cost of electricity, the Transair energy efficiency calculator defines the savings and the duration of return on investment. The results speak for themselves and show that Transair is the best performing system and the best long term choice, no matter whether the project is for an extension, the modification of an existing pipe system or a new installation. To calculate energy savings using the Transair Energy Calculator, you will need: data about the compressor room, data about the compressed air network, and economic data (quotation for the network, electricity cost). With this energy calculator, you will be able to compare Transair to traditional compressed air pipe systems: . For a new quotation: the quotation for Transair compared to the quotation for a new network in steel. . For an existing installation: the quotation for Transair compared to the annual cost for an old network in steel. The results will show estimations of: . Total annual cost for a traditional network and for Transair . Total of money saved for 1 to 10 years using Transair . The payback period of the initial investment in Transair products
