E5400 General Purpose

Knife Gate Valve

The E5400 General Purpose KGV is designed for use in a wide variety of industrial and municipal applications. Both unidirectional and bidirectional resilient seat designs provide reliable and durable solutions for controlling various types of fluids. The E5400 configured with a metal seat option is suitable for use on light solids and powder applications.

Features & Benefits

  • Manufactured from stainless steel for durability and corrosion resistance
  • Beveled gate design ensures pressure independent process seal
  • Gate backer improves process seal for low pressure and reverse flow conditions (sizes 12”+)
  • Lockout pin provision ensures operator and maintenance safety
  • Provision for proximity probes allows easy integration for position feedback
  • Easily configurable for mounting of various actuation options including bevel gear, pneumatic or hydraulic cylinders, and electric actuators
  • Grease fitting on stainless steel handwheel bearing reduces operating torques
