ITT Corp.’s latest innovation in its family of mining products is the Fabri-Valve 33 PTA push-through slurry valve. Specifically designed to withstand harsh slurry applications in the mining industry, the 33 PTA incorporates proprietary sleeve technology and a wide body design that together, according to the supplier, maximize valve life. The new valve’s elastomeric seats have been engineered to provide the highest degree of abrasion resistance and chemical compatibility. The seats form a pressure boundary, allowing for maintenance of gate and actuation while under pressure, to minimize downtime. The push-through seat design is self-cleaning. The 33 PTA is available in sizes ranging from 3- through 24-in. (76- through 610-mm) diameters and is rated to operate at 100 psi (10.3 bar).
