Universal Slide Gate Valves   

The type A slide gate valve is a single-seated wafer gate valve with flanged connection conforming to EN 1092-2 PN10. The slide gate valve is universally designed for general industrial use and can therefore be used in a wide range of industries and applications. 

The TYPE A slide gate valves can be used both within the piping system and as end units. 

The slide gate valve is available online in nominal sizes DN 50 to DN 600. Larger nominal diameters up to DN 1200 can be requested directly.
