E5500 High Temperature Class 150

Knife Gate Valve

The E5500 High Temperature KGV is designed and configured for use in industrial applications with high process temperatures. The unidirectional, Class 150 design with resilient seat is a reliable solution for controlling various types of fluids. Configured with a metal seat option, the E5500 is suitable for higher temperatures or for use on light solids and powder applications.

Features & Benefits

  • Manufactured from select materials for high temperature resistance
  • Beveled gate design ensures pressure independent process seal
  • Lockout pin provision ensures operator and maintenance safety
  • Provision for proximity sensors allows easy integration of position feedback
  • ISO 5211 mounting pattern allows direct mounting of various actuation options
  • Grease fitting on handwheel bearing reduces manual operating torques
