E5100 Light Process

Knife Gate Valve

The E5100 Light Process KGV is designed for industrial use as well as the municipal water & wastewater industry. The perimeter seat and transverse seal design ensures reliability and durability in various applications for fluids and light solids. The E5100 is suitable for bidirectional shut-off or dead-end service applications.

Features & Benefits

  • Perimeter style seat provides reliable, bidirectional flow/shutoff
  • Steel reinforced, replaceable seats ensure zero downstream leakage
  • Full port opening allows maximum throughput and minimizes pressure drop
  • Positive gate stop ensures seat integrity is maintained
  • Lockout pin provision ensures operator and maintenance safety
  • High visibility clevis provides easy identification of valve position
  • ISO 5211 mounting pattern allows direct mounting of various actuation options including bevel gear, pneumatic or hydraulic cylinders, and electric actuators
  • Grease fitting on handwheel bearing reduces operating torques
