Putzmeister Pipe Technology has introduced a new GVHM 2/2 hydraulic gate valve, which is available with an optional electro hydraulic power pack.
Putzmeister Pipe Technology, a division of Putzmeister America, Inc. (Putzmeister), has introduced its GVHM 2/2 hydraulic gate valve, which offers complete shutting of pipelines and a 100-percent leak-proof design, according to the manufacturer.
Compatible with both truck-mounted and trailer-mounted pumps being used on high-rise or long-distance projects, the gate valve is pressure-resistant and leak proof at extremely high pressures of up to 1,233 psi (130 bar). The valve’s simple post and beam structure allows for a fast and easy change not only of housing plates, seal rings and slide plates, but also of the hydraulic cylinder without having to disassemble the gate valve or remove from the pipeline.
“The new design will withstand the most rugged applications,” said Eric Zimmermann, director of parts sales and pipe technology. “Our customers will find the valve efficient, reliable, and easy to use.”
Suitable for high-pressure pumping projects, the hydraulically operated gate valve’s versatile design prevents concrete from bleeding and allows for simplified changes between two pumps. The product is available with 5 in. (12.5 cm) pipeline and SK, HD or ZX couplings to meet any projects specifications.
The new gate valve can be ordered from Putzmeister.
