Features and Benefits



The special design of the body allows for easy passage of the fluid and makes it ideal for use as silo outlet valve. Widely used in industries such as:
• Power plants
• Food and Beverage
• Chemical plants
• Mining
• Etc.

The valve is normally installed in the reverse position (seat upstream) in order to avoid problems like build-up in valve body, seat wear, difficulties closing.
