Valves and Gates

One constant in the fertilizer industry is that the materials being handled are tough on equipment. Fertilizers are abrasive, corrosive, and dusty. Sackett-Waconia manufactures a full line of gates and valves that are engineered to meet that challenge.

Salem Valves

When you need a quick and positive shut-off to material flow, Sackett-Waconia salem valves are the answer. Built of all 304 stainless construction, this tough and reliable design is made to close quickly and completely, and has a long track record of zero leaks. Our salem valves come in a range of sizes from 10" to 24". Available actuators are air (pneumatic), electric, and hydraulic - and we 2 or 3 position designs. All salem valves come with proximity switches for each position. Note: Solenoids and enclosures are provided as required.

Slide Gates

Slide gates are a space-saving design that allows for flow control in situations where overall height restrictions exist. Like our salem valves, they are of all 304 stainless construction. Sizes range from 10" square to 24" square, with rectangular models available as needed. Available actuators are air (pneumatic), electric, and hydraulic, and solenoids and enclosures are provided as required.  Sackett-Waconia also offers two manual versions, one of a pull design (for use with low head pressure), and one with a rack and pinion design.

Knife Gates

Knife gates are similar to slide gates but are mounted in a housing at an angle to provide shut-off in a high head-pressure situation. Constructed of 304 stainless, they range from 10" square to 24" square and actuators are air (pneumatic), electric, and hydraulic, and solenoids and enclosures are provided as required

Diverter Valves

Offered in two styles, "Pant Leg" and "K" style, Sackett-Waconia diverter valves are tough and have a long track record of successful use throughout the industry. Constructed of 304 stainless, they range from 10" square to 24" square and the available actuators are air (pneumatic), electric, and hydraulic, and solenoids and enclosures are provided as required.

Safety

As with all Sackett-Waconia Systems and equipment, safety is paramount. All valves and diverters are guarded in accordance with US OSHA standards, and we're happy to modify or add additional safety devices to meet any additional standards you may require, as long as they do not compromise minimum safety standards.
