Crystalliser Outlet Valves
Knife Gate Valves have traditionally been used in this application due to the high viscosity of the massecuite. They seldom provide a complete shut off and after time can leak to atmosphere through the gland. This can damage the sugar cystallization process.
By using a JMC31300 Butterfly Valve on the Crystallizer Outlet they will provide reliability even with the heaviest B & C massecuites giving a reliable drop tight shut off every time.
