About SLURRY VALVES
Every year, companies are spending billions of dollars replacing or repairing valves that have failed prematurely, which is great news for valve manufacturers, but not so good for the end user whose ultimate objective is to improve reliability and reduce operating costs. This is especially true of slurry handling valves where inappropriate valve selection often results in failure. Valve failure is not always due to wear and tear (erosion and/or corrosion) but is often associated with scale build-up or blockages that prevents the valve from operating.
In an attempt to reduce start-up costs, design engineers often compromise when choosing which valves to use. Often it's the "least expensive" valve option that's chosen. However once piping and valves have been installed, it becomes difficult to change to a more suitable valve due to the logistics of rearranging pipe work.
