Mining and mineral processing facilities present a host of threats that can affect valve reliability and uptime. Knife gate valves used in slurry transport, for example, must consistently perform despite heavy contact with abrasive, corrosive metal solids or acids that can erode the valve. Slurry materials and sludges can also stick to valve parts, impeding flow. If your valve fails or leaks, consequences can include replacement, downtime for repairs, environmental damage and safety risks to personnel.
Avoid Damaging Corrosion, Wear and Buildup
General Magnaplate coatings have proven successful protecting valves from the damaging effects of mining operations. Our coatings are specially engineered to provide wear, friction and corrosion resistance — three properties critical to the protection of mining valve blades, housings and other vital parts. Engineered coatings transform ordinary metal parts into corrosion-resistant, super-hard, dry-lubricated products that last longer, are more cost efficient and perform better.
