These are slab gate valves specifically designed for delayed coking, ethylene an FCC cracking service.
The Strahman Single or “Slab” gate design provides the end user with a long term reliable solution for line isolation. The flexibility of the slab gate design including flange connections, materials of construction, and the choice of actuation - whether it is best suited for hydraulic, electric, pneumatic, or hand wheel gear operation will fit the needs of design engineers. The slab gate design also offers a much smaller footprint and can bring a substantial weight savings over the traditional ball valves and wedge style gate valves. These valves also eliminate the concerns of failure caused by a “sticky” ball or wedge gate and can be repaired at a much lower cost and much less frequently as traditional valves. The combination of the constant cleaning of the gate surface with every stroke along with the constant steam purge system plays a significant role in the low maintenance design and longevity of the valve.
The gate and seats are in constant contact to keep the particles out of the valve body
