Small volume, flexible operation, easy installation, more suitable for high consistency media and solid particles. It can be seen from the name that the knife gate valve mainly depends on the knife gate to cut off the medium. The sluice has two sealing surfaces forming a wedge. The ram can be made into integral rigid ram or elastic ram, which can produce small deformation and improve the sealing performance.
