Red Valve designed its first pinch valve for the mining industry in 1953, and in the following decades, has built on that heritage by producing various types of valves to handle many of the tough applications in the mining industry. The company’s recently released, full-color Valve Selection Guide for the Mining Industry highlights Red Valve’s extensive product offering, including control pinch valves, slurry knife gate valves and Tideflex air diffusers. The brochure includes application photos of installations ranging from South American copper mines to Midwestern U.S. taconite mines.
