Fisher has created a slurry valve designed specifically to handle the abrasive and erosive nature of oil sands and mining slurry flow.
The V150S utilizes reverse flow design to direct flow away from the valve body. The downstream portion of the valve has been extended so that the valve itself will be exposed to the region of highest flow velocity, instead of the downstream piping. A PSZ ceramic flow ring insert is used to protect the valve in this region in order to protect the valve body from erosion.
The lifespan of the Trim III V150S compared to gate valves and its predecessor, the Trim II V150S, has roughly quadrupled. Combining the benefits of a control valve with the durability of a slurry valve, the V150S offers the control to optimize your process while minimizing maintenance requirements to limit downtime.
